Aunt Meghna, Houston TX
I made a few portraits of our Aunt Meghna the last time we visited her and Jai in Houston, but I just now got around to processing this one. She’s Nini’s aunt, but she’s about the same age as us and she is soooo pretty! She has nearly perfect skin and mesmerizing brown eyes. Unfortunately I was really off my game that weekend and my lighting was just terrible. Somehow I added 20 years to her face! But alas, with Sue Bryce’s two minute retouching technique I was able to salvage this portrait and make Meghna look at least half as beautiful as she really is. And it only took me five minutes! I’m getting faster!
Nini and I are in Chicago this weekend for a conference and haven’t had much time for photography or smug, but I hope to get out and shoot today. I brought a few photos to practice retouching on but so far I’ve only done this one. Maybe more tomorrow if the weather doesn’t clear up.
Critiques are always welcome.
