We’re all probably very familiar with photo-retouching – especially after that ad campaign by Dove. There are of course master ‘touch-uppers’ who are very skilled artists capable of turning one photo into quite another image. While portfolios of these touch-up artists often show before-and-after pictures to showcase their abilities, Christophe Huet went a step further in his rather well-done portfolio website – he also shows quite a bit of the intermediate steps to show how the transformation was done.
And it’s kinda amazing how much detail was reworked in each picture – even the tiniest ones far off in the background. Just goes to show sometimes, you really do have to fabricate the perfect picture that works.
