Or what I like to call my Faaaawks. You can almost hear my accent.
3: I have a pouch/flabby area. I’m worried about x not looking nice in the portrait.
Guess what, me too! And all the women I see here. I highlight the nice bits and I am on the look out for anything that wouldn’t be a nice composition.
4: What’s the extent of the retouching? Can I have my head on Demi Moore’s body? (jk)
I did that once though, for a friend’s baby shower I put her head on that famous vanity fair, pregnant shot of Demi. It was funny.
Anyway, the retouching is to enhance the portrait, not complete change it. The final prints will be retouched for skin blemishes, extra folds (self explanatory I think :), brightening of the smile and eyes and some extra little things I call the Marlen touch. Yes, that is exactly what I call it.
5: Can I bring my friend/boyfriend/assistant with me?
Sure. If you are sure you could squeeze your boobs in front of that person, I have nothing to complain about. Some start in the bedroom and then decide to go to have a beer at Murphy’s Law down the street or wait on the couch. If your other half is coming we could even do a some couple shots. Topless works for me.
