Mutton Dressed Up As Lamb

Last Christmas, we had a little family photo shoot. My aim was to finally get a photo of my pop smiling...a harder task than you think! I told some dirty jokes while snapping away. It helped that he'd had a few home brew beers prior to the shoot. After wards, we began mucking around with Photoshop and we decided to try to take 30 years off of them. Not that they need it; they are in their 70's and are looking pretty sharp for a couple of old ducks, but nevertheless, it was quite amusing to play around with the clone stamp; it is one of the easiest tools to use and produces instant results - who needs a dentist or Oil of Olay when you have Photoshop!

The SOOC shot: Not too bad at all and he is smiling!

Post Production: Wrinkles smoothed, teeth lightened!
It's going to be good to see them in 3 weeks!

Your touch up is subtle but really nice.

I think I am just useless at the clone tone - I never seem to get it right. I loved the facelift you gave your pop :)
