Today’s blueprints will show you 2 similar photos of the same model taken in the same light. I edited them very differently so you could get an idea of how you can get completely different looks under the same conditions.
For the 1st Blueprint of this graduating high school senior, I took a natural enhanced approach. I wanted to help smooth her skin a bit and reduce her acne. I kept her skin tone fairly natural and lightly brightened and sharpened the eyes as well. See the exact details below.
For the 2nd Blueprint I decided to go to an extreme. I am sure some of you may not prefer this because of the lack of detail in the skin and the overall ghostly brightness, but that was the point – to make this one fake and almost magazine model like.
So I am curious to hear your opinions. I assume most will prefer one over the other – but I would love to hear what you like and why.
