    Wow! What a difference. I agree taking landscape photography is way easier than portrait, therefore my hats off to those who attempt. For I am sticking to objects that rarely move!!

  • Hehehe – I like that – subjects that don’t move. Unfortunately they usually do in my landscapes – it’s just people are happy to see them as they are – not made-over – well not much anyway!

    I thought your original was great, but now with a portrait photographer doing it, I can see the difference. I am with Kristie, my subjects don’t move too much either.

  • thanks elisa

    Hi Geoff ! Hehe I really like your perseverence, you’re a real photographer at heart! And good on you for trying different things too… Lee obvioulsy looks younger and less “tired” here, which is more flattering. However, it doesn’t look very natural (I’m never happy am I? ;)). I liked the fact that you were trying to go for “natural”. So the real challenge now is to get a natural portrait which looks as good as a photoshopped one without Photoshop ;)) Looking forward to more portraits…

  • OMG is there no way to make you happy woman lol! Thanks for setting the bar so low – I’ll remember that all I have to do is absolutely flawless and invisible photoshopping that eliminates all “flaws” whilst making the subject look natural. Piece of cake!! Seriously I do understand what you’re saying Douzy – i think this is the holy grail of portrait photography that I’m a million miles from! But we’ll keep trying – poor Lee – she’ll have no image left on RB by the time I’m through with this particular vertical learning curve.

    Hey Geoff – practice makes perfect LOL! All aspects of photography are difficult – I find landscape photography really hard and should practice it more – it’s great to get out of your comfort zone every now and then and try new things! I think you did a great job with the lighting and composition of the original – that’s the most important part!

  • Thanks Sarah – very encouraging words from the Mistress of Avalon – well and truly outside my comfort zone I can tell you!

    Amazing the difference ,
    It will just take a bit of time and practice to get the new editing skill for potrait .
    You still had all the rest right eg composition , exposure and whitebalance

  • Thanks for the lovely encouraging message

    Hi Geoff, to be honest I prefer your original, each to their own, and no offense intended. The touched up version doesn’t look natural, a barbie doll view of a woman. Your first shot isn’t ordinary at all, keep at it mate!!

  • Thanks Larry – hope one day to be able to do shots of your calibre – very beautiful portfolio you have.
