I've seen some post processed portraits the compared to the original real person did not in any way resemble the real person.
How much post processing. removing blemishes, freckles, etc. is proper to be done?
Are these phots where the face is totally devoid of any wrinkle, blemish, freckle, etc. what the subject is expecting or are they an exercise in "this is how good I am"?
Don't get me wrong I'm not berating those who like to do a lot of post processing and "remaking" the person. In fact I'm in awe of your skills.
I guess I'm just looking for some discussion of the reason.
