Red Hen Publications — Photo 49: Photo-Retouch
The Graphics Collection


We hit the ground running in the Advanced Photoshop class. This was our very first assignment and it was a lot more exacting than anything that we’d done the semester before. In addition, all of this semester’s work was to be presented (digitally) matted and labeled.

I went a bit overboard on the “presentation” for a few of the assignments that semester. Probably over-compensating for my inherent lack of any great spark of genius (or even competence) as a photographer.

If I were to redo this assignment I might even try to go in with the Liquify tool and see if I could give the younger child a somewhat happier expression. But on consideration, it may be just as well that we didn’t get very much into things like the Liquify tool.
