How much touch-up and editing do you think is ok?

 How much touch-up and Photoshop work would you do for this client?

This client is 55 years old and knows she looks older.

What would you do? lets talk about it…

Please note: These images were shot for this post.

The rawness of the image is intentional to show the age, size and sun damage of the skin and to hopefully start a constructive discussion about post editing.

    I’m not sure that I would have captured her from those angles, I would have maybe draped a sheer material slightly over her, not to cover her but to give a more sensual look & feel.
    If I were to PS her I would soften her slightly so that her natural lines are not the first thing the viewer see’s, it’s a difficult one because we need to embrace our bodies at any age, yet still show the woman’s feminine side without being distracted by our aging lines.
    Am very interested to hear what you would do in this situation, as it’s something we are all going to come across.
    Excellent question & article!!

    FIRST OF ALL I BELIEVE THAT IT IS UP TO THE CLIENT AS TO HOW MUCH YOU SHOULD TOUCH UP AND EDIT. I DO AGREE WITH THE PREVIOUS POST THO. THERE ARE OTHER WAYS THAT YOU CAN HAVE HER POSE TO GET THE ATTENTION OFF OF HER PROBLEM AREAS THAT SHE SEEMS FIT. I THINK THE BIGGEST PART OF ANY SHOOT IS TO KNOW WHAT PROBLEM AREAS THE CLIENT THINK SHE OR HE HAS AND TRY TO SHOOT AROUND THEM. THE LAST PART IS THE TOUCH UP. I`M NO PROFESSIONAL BUT THAT IS USUALLY WHAT I DO.
