Default Heavy retouching requested

She asked for tons of retouching so she got it. I ended up photographing with more shadows than I normally do so that when she was retouched, it would still have some contours.

I like them both. Would be nice to see a before and after to actually see how much retouching you did.

Even heavily retouched, she doesn't look plastic. Nice work, Linda.

Sorry, had surgery and didn't get back here! Here are the befores. Secret is to well light them so it doesn't highlight wrinkles and then have a subject that's taken good care of her skin.
