I decided it would be fun to do self-portraits tonight. The ones below are the ones that I liked best, especially the first one. Since I've never really done portrait retouching, this was an interesting exercise in Photoshop experimentation. Most of what I did was fairly minor-- smooth out the skin tones a little, fix a horrid catch light on the eyes, correct my growing-out roots. The result still isn't terribly professional, but at least I don't have sparkly skin from using bad lighting. And yes, the color tones are different between the two.
