Boudoir photo retouching is a tricky subject for boudoir photographers. You don’t want any client to feel they need to be “photoshopped” to look good.
As a rule of thumb, if a blemish is on the skin that is temporary, I remove it. If there is a red mark or a bruise that will go away, it also disappears during retouching images.
Other markings are subjective. Some minor scars will disappear depending on how light hits them. Scars and cellulite show based on the way light moves across the skin. The shadow created by the light usually makes them stand out. While better to handle this during the shoot, sometimes this is only possible in editing.
If a client wants her images edited, I will honor her wishes after talking with her about the retouch.
I’ve created a short video to show you what a RAW image straight out of the camera, vs. boudoir photo retouching does to an image.
