Lighting

Lighting Section

In this image the subject's skin requires a little bit of smoothing. In the enhanced image we’ve also used the lighting controls to add more definition to the face.





Lighting Section

This image has a 50s pin up feel to it, the intention was to give it a more glamorous feel by adjusting the lighting.





Lighting Section

With this image we wanted to bring out the character of the subject's face, and create a more dramatic look by increasing the overall contrast of the image.





Lighting Section

The lighting is rather dull and flat in this image so we want to add a little more definition.





Lighting Section

For this image we want to achieve a flawless and dramatic look as seen in glossy magazines and fashion shoots. The lighting has enhanced the models bumpy skin so we also want to even this out





Glamour

Glamour Section

The original image is beautiful however the model has very bumpy skin. In Portrait Professional this is an easy fix.





Glamour Section

A beautiful face but the image is a little dull!





Glamour Section

In this image, the subject's skin, face shape and hair have been altered. You may not want to change the face shape to this degree, especially if the image was for the sitter. However, it does show that you can change the proportions of the features and still retain the subject's identity.





Glamour Section

In the original photo, despite being lively with lots of pattern and color, the subject's hair and skin look a little dull. So in the enhanced image we've livened the subject up!





Glamour Section

For this image we improved the shape of the model's face, as well as the quality of their skin to make them look younger. But we still wanted to preserve the lighting of the image. Lastly, we also corrected the skin tones to render a more natural look.





Glamour Section

We wanted to smooth out the pores on the skin in this image. We also wanted to enhance the model's eyes and mouth to make them stand out more and give her a much more glamorous look





Glamour Section

With older subjects it's very important to take a measured approach or they are liable to look too blurry!





Natural

Natural Section

Here the subject in the original image has slightly bumpy and pasty looking skin.





Natural Section

In this example the subject's face has been slimmed quite a lot. However she is still easily recognisable, and would probably think it was just a flattering angle.





Natural Section

Here I have gently refined the facial proportions, smoothed and brightened the skin, features and hair!





Natural Section

With this more mature subject we've tried to make her appear younger - but not too much!





Natural Section

This is a nice atmospheric portrait, so we just wanted to smooth the subject's skin a little and tweak her proportions.





Natural Section

This portrait needs very little done to it but the model's complexion could do with a little refining. We also refined the proportions of her face a little.





Men

Men Section

This is a handsome man who needs very little enhancement.





Men Section

I like the detail on the original and wanted to try and keep as much natural looking skin texture as possible while reducing some of the shine and uneven color. I also wanted to see if I could make him like look like a more handsome version of himself using the shape controls.





Men Section

The biggest thing you notice about the original image is that the subject's nose looks a little too big for his face.





Men Section

This subject has very spotty, bumpy skin and a puckish, childish profile.





Men Section

This is a well shot image of a handsome older man, I didn't want to do too much to him just make him look a little younger.





Men Section

I wanted to tame down the rather comical expression and make the subject look more attractive whilst still being recognisable!





Men Section

A well lit professional photo but the subject looks rather grumpy and unapproachable!





Men Section

The shape of the subject's head is a little peculiar. We increased the jaw size a little, decreased the width of the top of his head and reduced the width of his nose.





Children

Children Section

All this image needs is for the child's skin and eyes to be brightened up a little.





Children Section

Another image of a very young cute child and the image needs nothing more than brightening up.





Children Section

Babies are often born with this kind of acne, it doesn't last very long so we don't particularly want a lasting memory of it.





Children Section

A young girl and again little is needed, she has slightly bumpy skin which could also be brightened up a little.





Hair

Hair Section

Hair - This is a great image to begin with, however the hair and skin need a little work.





Hair Section

Hair - The model in this image has beautifully clear skin, all we want to do with this image is smooth the hair and change it’s colour.





Hair Section

Hair - With this image we used the same approach as with the previous one, this time we wanted to create a slightly different look by choosing another color.





Hair Section

Hair - With this image we want to make the man look a little younger by reducing his grey hair.





Groups

Groups Section

Here I wanted to keep the young fresh natural look - but clean up the skin and make them look as attractive as possible.





Groups Section

The girl in this image looks rather tired, as it's the couple's prom picture, they both want to look their best.





Groups Section

Because of the angle of the subjects - the bride's jaw juts forward and the groom's jaw recedes - I wanted to address the imbalance a little. Also I wanted to matt the bride's shiny skin, which had caught the lighting.





Features

Features Section

Eyes - Here the eyes have been widened a little and the brightness has been enhanced.





Features Section

Nose - In this we have reduced the width of this man's nose.





Features Section

Mouth - In this example we have plumped the lips a little, brightened the teeth and increased the saturation of the lip color.
