Portrait Retouch in 6 Minutes

My first YouTube video.  I did a video screen capture of a 90 minute retouching job and sped up the video 16x to a little over 6 minutes (not counting opening and closing titles). Watch it here or see a larger version at YouTube.

0:13    Remove blemishes
0:37    Retouch lips and enhance lip color
0:57    Soften eyebags
1:29    Brighten whites of left eye
1:37    Hand draw additional eyelashes
1:50    Retouch clothes
2:00    Remove fly away hair
2:19    Remove wrinkles
2:40    Soften pores and skin texture
4:13    Remove stray hair

The video conversion and upload process to altered the colors somewhat.  To see a color correct version of this photo and learn how I created this image in the camera, go to How To Do A Business Headshot, just above. A “before and after” closeup of this retouching job is here.
