We had a conversation on Red Umbrella Chronicles a while ago on the pro’s and cons of retouching. Certainly there are many different opinions on this matter, and real differences in just how comfortable us ladies are with this concept. Added value or false impressions? Enhanced beauty or unattainable perfection? Measured improvement or extreme change? Too much or just enough?
The jury is still out on whether it is acceptable or not, but it is certainly an impressive skill when one can improve and build on an already beautiful image and make it that little bit more perfect and appealing. Each image can take up to 14 days of exact detail and attention.
So whilst I am not taking away from the skill in developing such picture perfect photos, I guess the question I am posing is, should we bother or should we simply appreciate the natural, the real and the untouched?
See what you think of the below and make your call….
