Digital plastic surgery

This was a true test of my image editing skills! I was asked to “freshen up” these doctors faces and minimize the discrepancies in their heights so that they could be used on a billboard. This involved believably enlarging the woman in the middle, whitening and fixing teeth, taking bags out from under eyes and adding that sun-kissed glow to all (They were only used as head and shoulders shots so I did not need to bother with the tie). As a final touch, we “popped” them off the background with a color-wash. I wish that I had the exact original of this photo, but I only have a very close one from the original series. I’ll have to ask you to please use your imagination a bit when comparing these two images.
