Thanks for your great answer to my question:
“I sometimes get asked brides and mothers of the bride whether I can airbrush them thinner, or something along those lines.
I can do this, but I think what they’re really saying is they’re not confident in the way they look.
I’ve been photographing weddings for five years, but still get caught off-guard by this question.
Do you have any advice?”
I’ve not used the liquify tool for a few years – I think it can be too time consuming and even a little insulting – and agree the best approach is to make photographs as flattering as possible using posing and lighting.
I’ve used the sometimes glib sounding response, ‘you don’t need photoshop’, but I think Bryan’s suggestion of explicitly saying that I’ll use posing and lighting to best effect is much better.
Thanks for submitting your question Tom. Glad we were able to help.
