Re: Minimizing wrinkles on mature clients

A very flat lighting will minimize the shadows that produce the wrinkle texture in photos. Additionally, I use the healing tool in Photoshop to erase some of the smaller lines and I also use a bit of diffusion by making a copy layer of the person, using a gaussian blur on that copy layer and then adjusting the opacity on that layer to about 25-30%, depending on the person and the lighting. I also erase the eyes, bottom of the nose and lips from the blurred layer to give those features a higher level of sharpness. Anyway, there are dozens of techniques and opinions on this, others mileage may vary, but this is what I do.

Thanks Mark, I like your answer to this question. Now do you have a way of removing them from the photographer?
Well if said photog lives in a plastic bubble all his/her life and never goes out and experiences life, faces challenges, and has all deceisions made for them, that will prevent them...but who would really want that for their life
