a quick touch-up

James Wang (a photographer and friend) posted a great blog entry about touching up faces in photoshop. He used Edward James Olmos as his (perfect) example. My subject doesn't have nearly the same need for touching up so I had to be super subtle.

After:


The major difference between this version and Edward James Olmos is the stubble and bangs. I had to be careful to mask the effect around the hair - seeing blurry bangs was giving away that I had touched up the photo. Still, this took me less than 5 minutes. Fun!!
