Retouching Headshots

I'm going to be posting a new series here on my blog where I showcase techniques or post processing sessions. This is meant to highlight where our value lies as professional photographers. So much goes into producing a professional photo that the client never sees – it's more than just pushing the shutter button. I believe that I possess an attention to detail, a set of skills and talents as well as the knowledge and experience to produce a photo that few others do. In this post, I'm going to show you what can go into what seems like a simple headshot that is as easy as snapping the photo with your iPhone.

Holding the D800E overhead, 16-35 f/4 attached, I was able to capture this photo of Ki-Shui. With a bit of post-processing, you have an iron shot into the golden setting sun.
