Before and after some photoshopping magic
This week we received a CD with the photos that we had taken of all of us while in Estonia this summer. I am generally quite uncomfortable in front of the camera but fortunately there were quite a few family photos that had turned out pretty well and will be printed and framed.
As I was prepping some of them for the blog, I way too quickly pressed on the ‘erase’ tool where my face was in a close-up and fixed up the dreadfully dark circles under my eyes. After I had finished I felt really crap :| I liked the end result but just felt really shitty that my face has reached the age that no amount of concealer can do as good of a job as a bit of photoshopping magic can.
Now I’ve thought about it for a few days and to be honest I just don’t know what to think about it – to photoshop my face in photos or to leave it? To put on more make up? In the end, is there a difference – loads of make up OR photoshopping to achieve the same result?
What do you think? Do you photoshop your face before you upload pictures to blog/Facebook/Flickr, etc.?
P.S. If anyone knows a good down-to earth make-up person in London, I think I need help – I clearly cannot get away with just tinted moisturiser/concealer and mascara anymore, but I really don’t know how to apply anything else :|
