Negatives and Positives of Photo Retouching

 

Cameron Russell TED Talk on the Modeling Industry’s Photographic Practices

 

 

Touch up editing (also called retouching) is when blemishes are cleaned up, mergers are removed, certain parts of the image morphed, etc.

Retouching  photos is not without controversy as many of the images of people you see on a magazine cover have hours of retouch work done on them.  So the person you see on the cover may not resemble the actual person as much as you may think.

However, retouching does have positive aspects.
