5 Mistakes Retouchers Hate!

    

This video was somehow forgotten in the migrating from the Blog, we just realized it today so I am reposting for those that have missed it!

Oh how slowly they learn. After taking excessive measures I have finally been able to convince Michael of his mistakes. He's fine...recovering from his dehydration and allergic reaction to the duct tape quickly...he should be up and running in the next few days. Granted the Doc did say his lip swelling will take a little longer, thankfully he loves drinking soup through a straw!

 

 

In all seriousness these 5 errors are easily corrected during the shoot. STOP BEING LAZY. Digital has helped out in many positive ways, but the the worst thing that happened is causing a lazy photographer syndrom. I don't know how many times I have heard "I'll fix it in Photoshop", well I say...screw you take a good picture!!

A wise man once said "Photoshop is to fix the models imperfections - NOT THE PHOTOGRAPHERS!"
