I have just learnt a very valuable thing about portraiture and modern technology, and I shall impart this knowledge to you.
Never, ever, ever, overlay a picture of your portrait over the original photo in Photoshop to compare. Especially if you’re already annoyed at all the little things which look wrong.
My soul is broken.
Afterwards yes, for learning purposes this could be very useful I feel, but halfway through? When I’m thinking “Hmm yes the structure and proportions look pretty spot on…”?
On the flipside, if ever you’re looking for a quick, easy way to completely drain your own motivation and drive for a project then look no further friends, look no further.
