When I first saw this, I automatically thought "she has a perfect geisha face," probably because of the powder-white face and small red lips. Now, looking at the before/after comparison, I see the model and realize that very little was done to alter the natural beauty other than the color changes (photoshop?). Still very, very pretty!
The reason I uploaded the before & after is because the edited version seemed to cause a bit of controversy about if it was still photography or a manipulation, I thought some people may have been interested in seeing the before photo.
the post production on this image, makes it a better image. it adds to the drama & intensity of the shot. I wish I could say this more about "photoshopped" images. You have a good eye for what post production will add to your images. Good Job!
You have a very cute face. Your hair and skin colour, your freckles, the corners of your mouth. They all disappear in the edit, which is sad because your face is so beautful. Despite this however, I have to commend you because the edit is well performed and have left no trace.
This is the technique I use (assuming you're using Photoshop).
- When I want even paler skin I usually just desaturate the skin & not the whole photo. - Create a new layer. - Set the brush colour to white. - On the new layer, use the brush tool of a suitable size to effectively colour in the skin. - Set the layer mode to either ‘hue’ or ‘colour‘. - Alter the opacity of the layer to how pale you desire the skin to be. - If you want the pale skin to be more intense, duplicate the layer where you’ve coloured in the skin but now change the layer mode to ‘soft light’ & again alter the opacity to your desire.
