Many times a client will come to me with a photo they like that isn’t quite perfect. In this corporate photo retouching assignment, the gentleman had been offered the opportunity to have a free professional portrait taken, but he didn’t have a tie handy at that moment, so he requested that I photoshop a blue tie on after the fact.
Besides the wardrobe change, I also lightened the background to match the other portraits on the company’s website. This required hair re-painting since the original was on a black background.
