Photo editing

My wife is off again for another photo shoot. They will be shooting around 40 kids tomorrow in preparation for a Ballet recital. While most people see the work during the actual shoot itself, some hard work goes in the post-production process. My wife spends sleepless nights doing the work of an acne scar removal cream or eye whitening treatment. Sometimes she does digital face lifts. She does it in such away that the subject looks good but doesn't look like a different person. She also ensures that costumes and poses are highlighted as they are transformed from photos to a souvenir book. She works to preserve the depth and texture of the client's composition. Kudos to all photo editors!
