No photographer has photographed the perfect portrait without touching or editing before displaying them. I’m yet to see one. No one is perfect, perhaps, nothing ever is, thus we find ways of coming close to perfection. This kind of artistry, as much as it’s fascinating, it’s almost always necessary in the field of photography.
Just as makeup art enhances beauty, retouching presupposes perfection. We are witnesses of all sort of retouching and manipulations, ones that look plastic and unreal, and ones that look simply point on and undoubtedly impressive.
Nevertheless, the most impressive retouching pieces exude an element of realism that makes us believe in the true essence of the art.
To the talented retouchers out there, you are doing an amazing job flooding our timelines with perfection and quality picture.
