Closing Thoughts

Retouching a portrait is the most challenging type of retouching you can do. Remember to work with the contrast, color, and detail of the image. Before we move onto the "Glamour and Fashion Retouching" in Chapter 10, I'd like to give you one last hint. When you are retouching a person's face, keep their mother in mind. Try to see the retouching as she would. If it were too obvious, she would notice it and, most likely, not like it. If Mom can see the retouching, then she can't see her child and if her child, isn't in the picture then you've over-worked the portrait.
