Headshot Tip #18 – To airbrush, or not to airbrush?

To airbrush or not to airbrush? The camera may not lie, but Photoshop has been known to tell a few porkies. Help is at hand if needed and most photographers will be more than happy to do some basic retouching, such as eliminating stray hairs, reducing facial lines or bags under the eyes, and removing those dreaded spots and cold sores that magically appear on the morning of your shoot. When all’s said and done, your picture does have to look like you, rather than a re-touched model in Vogue.
