Simplify Stray Hairs in Silhouette Maternity Portrait

This is an image created by Margaret Belanger Photography. She wanted a light clean up of stray hairs but the objective was to make it not look too clean. So I retouched out the hairs that fell at the neck and chin, lightly cleaned up the hair around the head and falling down her back. I maintained some texture so that it kept a natural look that wouldn’t give away the impression that photoshop was used in excess. I also smoothed the shirt’s fabric on her back so that the smoothness of the bump was the predominant shape. 

What was retouched?
  • Selectively trim stray hairs under chin and around head
  • Smooth clothing bumps
