Model Lea Photo By Eastfist
By Chongchen Saelee
Here are the very simple retouch steps I took to make Lea really pop out and look feminine.
- Soft lighting
- Enhanced color in pupils
- Put some color into cheeks and nose to give youthful look
- Enhanced contrast of shadows and highlights to create moist skin effect
- Smaller nose
- Color correction that is more pinkish associated with fertility
Other things you could have also done:
- Moisten the lips, but don’t overdo it
- Moisten the hair, make it extra shiny
- Cliche, but photoshop in jewelry, subtle earring, necklace, etc.
- Vignette with feminine symbology, background, etc

How To Succeed With Model Mayhem
No matter what your goals are using the website, it’s important that you don’t give up.

I am impressed by the results of Adobe Photoshop CS2 Smart Sharpen filter. Yes, I know the software is ancient, but it was a much needed upgrade from my CS1. What’s cool is that you can sharpen individually the shadows or the highlights. Granted, if there is major motion blur, you won’t be able to “restore” the sharpness. You’re photo exposure needs to be at least decent.
I figure, I have to provide some freebies and extras to my devoted visitors. Here’s a free desktop wallpaper to show you my appreciation for visiting. (more…)
I wonder if I can cash in on giving aspiring models standard headshots like this: (more…)
Sigh. It’s so hard to start up a project from nothing. It’s one thing to make a personal website which caters mainly to stroke one’s own ego, it’s another to create a product to draw others in. And the hope is that the product is good enough that strangers become customers and keep coming back. If the small niche that I’ve discovered on the Internet is thriving enough, I hope I can tap into it to make some revenue. (more…)
