Ra Retouching – Beauty Retouchers

This was a fun project. Originally I was requested to do something with this image. My client really didn’t need it, she has enough pretty color head shots, but when she said, do anything you want, I trust you or drop this image, that’s when a light bulb turned on, appropriate since my last name is Watt…Holla…anyway I digress. So I really wanted this image to pop. Then BAM, it hit me. This should be B&W and needs to feel exotic, retro, sexy, and mysterious. So with some fine tune retouching, color conversion, cool crop and imagination, I feel this has the IT factor. It’s like Ralph Lauren meets James Bond. I’m happy and my client was too thrilled!
