Chapter 7. Retouching Portraits > Retouching Group Portraits

Retouching Group Portraits

For our purposes, a group portrait is any portrait with more than one person in it. Such retouching jobs are challenging because you are often called to apply different techniques to each person in the photo. In this example, we’re going to work with a family portrait of a 42-year-old mother posing with her two-year-old daughter. As the last of four children, the daughter has obviously caused more than a few wrinkles (and possibly some gray hairs) to appear on her mother. We can fix up this photo with what you’ve learned so far, plus some new techniques. The original photo, 2blondes.pcx, can be found on the CD-ROM accompanying this book. The original, shown in Figure 7.11, has a few problems—some easy to fix, some not so easy.
