The Finer Details
Can you spot-the-difference?
Photoshop is every where and it surprises me that there are still very few articles out there that call out the techniques used. I feel it’s important for everyone to understand how it works so they can be a better judge of the images they’re exposed to. The Finer Details provides a fun way to get acquainted…

A technique often used in the beauty industry…We’ve all seen those hair dye packages with the same shot and a different hair colour. I’m not a big fan of unnecessary photoshop- fakery so I tend not to use this a lot – Why not just change the lip colour in the first place? it would save hours of editing EVERY image later. However, I do use it occasionally – to enhance red hair or conceal a particularly OTT fake tan.

The Suspender Belt
Remember the Black And Blue Dress?…Well… this isn’t exactly like that. That was crazy mind trickery and this is photo-shop. We used two different suspender belts, Bluebella carry this design in both black & white and black & pink. Halfway through the shoot we swapped them over and then I worked a little photo-shop magic.
The nude stockings were changed to black. Its a similar technique to the one used to replace limbs.
Location shoots are great but they come with their problems – namely unexpected objects in the background! Whether its a miss-placed waste bin or a roaming crew member/ workman or cat. There are often distracting things to edit out – here we just edited out a black line.
