Lightroom - quick tip on slimming portraits
Hi - I stumbled across a little fix by accident for narrowing larger people's faces slightly.
I appreciate this is a delicate area but just a gentle tweak really helped my results.
For property photography i always play with the 'vertical' in lens correction / manual to get them perfect. Recently whilst processing some portraits of a very large and tall chap i noticed the verticals were slightly off so i adjusted them. What this actually did as well was elongate his face giving a more flattering result.
Use this sparingly but up to -5 the difference is very subtle and for me really helped.
Something i may only use very occasionally but might help someone else.
