Self Portrait 5


Here's another one! I love the blurred filmy effect, its actually taken in the reflection of a mirror and using a flash. Pretty simple beauty shot and not much to it but very me. I was trying to get a candid Terry Richardson kind of thing going on, sans the porn effect. I'm not quite there but practice makes perfect, I'd much rather be shooting other models. My skin has been an awful texture since I arrived in London, I really need to learn how to fix it in photoshop!!!
Update: Big Thankyou to Martina at DollyHazeGhost for taking my image and smoothing out my skin for me, it looks amazing now, like porcelain!

I think your skin is perfect! but in case you want some PS try with the brush that is a plaster icon or maybe taking out the focus. nice portrait!

zanita,
i have been reading your blog for a while now. you are beautiful, but more than that, you have an amazing inner beauty that really shines through!! just thought you should know. be encouraged. most of the really popular blogs are really shallow and self obsessed. yours is not like that at all, and its good.

use the healing brush tool, either the selective or spot, just push alt on a pc and click the good sample skin you want and simply blend it over the bad skin u want to go away. really one of the simplest of jobs in photoshop :)
u already have nice skin though
