Here are some of my latest RAW beauty shots to retouch and use for your portfolio.

I will select the retouched image that I feel best matches my vision of how the image should look to use in my portfolio. Credit will be given to the retoucher in my portfolio as well as in the model and makeup artist's portfolio.

I'm pretty new to retouching - have a lot to learn and folks like you are invaluable assets to us. Thank you so much.

Ditched the blems on arm. Extract and fill with green gradient. then did the dreaded blur/hipass. Sharpened her eyes, mouth and gloves.

Could not open the hires so used the jpg posted.

Kind regards,
   Bob

Thanks for the photo. I used it to create my initial port. Since the OP asked for a post, here it is.

This is my first post. Let me know if something is out of order.
