The purpose of this post is to expose the use of photoshop in model photography. It’s not ALL ABOUT making people look skinny, many other features make a photo “pop”: contrast, color, cropping, etc.
Before I started modeling, I was insecure about scars, stretch marks, and even freckles that most people don’t even notice. There are so many women out there who obsess about tiny aspects of their body, but do not realize how insignificant their perceived “flaws” are.
Basically: Awesome images can be created for anyone! Having a good eye for composing imagery and knowing your camera skills are super important, And photoshop can help bring even more life to your images.
In the following images, you can see an unedited photo next to an edited version. I am confident in my posing and I truly believe my inner muse shines in all my images- edited or NOT. However photoshop can be used to enhance colors, highlights, shadows, and remove distractions. Here is a growing collection of some before-and-after photoshop images of me.

So there ya go! The best way to get great photos is to be confident in yourself and know your angles, the lighting and photography skill should be done as well as possible, then post processing photoshop work is a great tool to further beautify your images!
