Photo Editing: Liquify + Slimming Tools

There are two photoshop tools that are extremely valuable in post-processing and I’m going to share them with you.
SLENDERIZE OR SLIMMING TECHNIQUE:

My go-to tool for creating a long body line, use with discretion ๐Ÿ™‚

LIQUIFY:

This tool is ideal for chin tucks, or small areas that need a little slimming. It is more time-consuming, so I use it only when slimming doesn’t work on a specific area.

    Just curious, how do you see this kind of technique fitting with the emphasis you put on helping women be joyful and confident with who they are & loving “curvy women?” But maybe I just misunderstand your thoughts on that or how you use these techniques.

      I see it from this perspective: when you make a posing choice, certain body parts that are closer to the camera are going to look larger and less flattering. These tools are help compensate for certain angles and mistakes from posing/composition. There is always a give and take, and the camera is less forgiving than the human eye, which automatically offsets the disparity. I use this tool very sparingly, about 10% of my photos need some post-correction. I don’t feel this compromises my vision or my convictions in the least, I want to present a finished product that my client will feel is a beautiful representation of them, and even deeper, their soul. Granted, the trick is to get it right the first time, in camera, and that is always the goal ๐Ÿ™‚

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth. Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar. The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli, but the Little Blind Text didnโ€™t listen. She packed her seven versalia, put her initial into the belt and made herself on the way.

Long before I was engaged, I knew I wanted Christa Taylor Photography to capture the special moments of my wedding. She more than met our expectations, and seldom a month goes by without somebody telling us how gorgeous our wedding pictures turned out! 
 Working with Christa is like finding some awesome girlfriend who completely gets you and can show you the beauty in whatever project you're undertaking. I recommend her to every bride I work with! Thank you, Christa, for your incredible work!

Christa is absolutely PHENOMENAL! My husband and I are beyond blessed to have had her capture our day! She was so great at directing people kindly and having fun too! She's a blast and we enjoyed the day more because of her! We loved getting to know her and she even had us to her home the week after our wedding for a brief photo shoot since the weather had been bad on the wedding day...she really went above and WAY beyond the call of a photographer and became our friend! She's the type we'd schedule a photo shoot with simply to see her and catch up!! Her baby is the cutest most joyful girl just like her momma! ๐Ÿ’•There are not words to reccomend Christa highly enough! ๐Ÿ’•We love you Christa!!
