In case you think it is heavily photoshop-ed lemme show you the before/after:
"skin matte finish, light softening + additional lights and sharpening on details."
Truth be told, I feel really offended when people naturally think that photos are photoshopped heavily,
just because the photos looked different from us, in our daily lives.
First of all, make-up does WONDERS.
This, we all know.
Secondly, the lights & angle make a difference too.
Let me quote Vin, who allowed me to share this photo & his workflow
to prove that not all photos are photoshop-based.
"Most of the time, that is the formula (makeup, light, angled shots) to make good photos."
Reason why I will feel offended, is because I think if you simply classify a photo as "photoshopped",
you immediately discredit the photographer, the make-up artist, the model, the lightsman.
You discredit our hardwork & effort for that few hours.
I do not know how to use photoshop,
but yes, being in this industry, I do know that photoshop is essential at most times,
to help produce better photos,
but no, not all photos depend heavily on photoshop.
So please, assumption kills.
Anyways, really glad to work with Vin again.
This time, for a fashion + beauty shoot.
Something which I have been looking forward to all these while :)
The last time we met was prolly 1.5-2 years ago.
When I still looked like THIS:
are you ready to be shocked?
