Fashion Retouch

One of the things I really enjoy doing is retouching, but I figured not a lot of people know that, so I decided to post one of the photos I recently worked on. Personally, I think that when shooting something post-editing is definitely very important, it should always be part of the complete process, just like composition, lighting, make-up when shooting with models and so on.
For this particular project I used an image that was actually amazingly well shot, so I just had to do some minor touch-ups:
-remove blemishes
-smooth skin
-remove stray hairs
-remove straps from wings
-background cleanup
-color and tone adjustment

  2. well I do think restraint is very important, after all, it's retouching, not photo-manipulation and the whole point is too look natural.
