Example of Photoshop Retouching - Jeans ad on side of building

Some of my retouching work displayed in Oprah Magazine and on the side of a 5-story building for a jeans company.

The work involved improving the model's skin and hiding her bra that was visible in the opening of her blouse. The jeans had to have bunched up areas smoothed, since the ones used in the shoot were a bit big on her -- and they had pin stripes that had be aligned!

The images were used for various magazine ads, posters in the shopping mall as well as on the building.
