Instagram post 17904851072176826 Some people like the whole “before and after” thing. (And of course I would never do this with a client photo.). But I don’t mind sharing mine, cause “this is me.” I own my age (45).My vision for whoever I use as retoucher is to keep things real but “enhanced.” Every image of every person we see in Vogue, GQ, has had extensive skin retouching done. Beautiful pores.  Even texture.  We see it so much that we think that all these people have flawless skin… they don’t. That’s where the amazing retoucher’s come in. They get paid good money to do this well and fast.Personally, I like my photo to be a little more gritty realism.  But when your Retoucher is your husband, you kinda lose that battle.After he does his skin magic, there’s something I need to do to every single photo of mine.  A flaw that is getting more pronounced with age.  My left eye (on the right of the photo) has a heavy lid. Which then makes that eye look dead, because the catchlight doesn’t show.  I have a super simple fix to bump that eyelid back up a bit and fix that catchlight.And I figured, let’s enhance the Mickey face on the Watch. Because why not.  #pittsburghheadshots #retouching @dan_jenworleyphotography

Instagram post 17979563497402204 Working on making gifs for my IG feed, instead of multiple stills.  You know, because IG says they are all about videos now.Looking for easy ways to make gifs, convert for IG, and then schedule.  Should I make these as reels?  Can I post these as reels if I’m importing from GIPHY?  Anyone have any input, I’m all ears.  There is wisdom in a multitude of counselors.#reels @giphy

Instagram post 17998829323337729 Had the privilege of taking Mr. Carnegie’s photo this week.  But he was a bit difficult.Old heavy ornate frame. He was under glass. In the corner of two small hallways. And I couldn’t control the lighting in the office- some stay on permanently.I thought I came prepared. Brought a large felt backdrop to block the light and the reflections it cast.  But it wasn’t solid enough.  Couldn’t completely block the light from the doorway on the same plain as the artwork, which then illuminated my tripod and me, as you can see in the glass.So I started playing around with cardboard that was laying around, which served the dual purpose of further blocking the diffused light behind the camera, and stopping the camera, tripod, and me reflecting off the glass.But it wasn’t big enough. And it took forever, as my shutter speed was at 25 seconds.  So Abby, who was the project leader doubling as my assistant (thank you Abby!) found a roll of Kraft paper, which we unfurled, both holding an end to cover a larger area… it was barely long enough to cover the width, so perfect!My psd file comprised of five images all layers then masked out to get me what I needed, and then I had to clone out my lens which was still to the left of Andy’s chin.Took about an hour on location, and then maybe 20-30 minutes in post.  But still less work (and risk!) than taking it off the wall, and taking it out of glass.#carnegie #carnegieheros
