Model portrait, profile

Here is another portrait from a recent photo session with a young Swedish model I have worked with. The light setup and post-production is about the same as the portrait I wrote about earlier, see the post with lighting diagram and behind the scenes photos here.

Just a different crop and a little lighter retouch. What strikes me when I am working with something like this is how I never can go as far with skin fixing and beauty retouch as I had planned.

I always work as much as I can with all the tricks that Photoshop offers, just to reduce the opacity of all the adjustment layers until the original photo shines through enough so it feels like a normal human being again.

Something I have to work with, I suppose. Or just continue photographing ordinary people.

This is exactly what happens to me. I always pull the skin retouching back.
