Less is More – Editorial Retouching

I received an order yesterday with several images to pick from. They needed a four page story, so I chose the four best images. The first three images were easy to find the right crop, but this last image I played with for a few minutes. I came up with this crop, because I feel the model’s features are so gorgeous and strong and having her chest and arms in the shot takes away from her face. This pose is not going to make the viewer go wow, but her face will. So after cropping, color correcting, retouching and adding some more hair, the picture is perfect.
