Argh. Maybe I'm too precious about my pictures, maybe I'm a jumped-up artiste. But I guess if I ever want anybody else to take me seriously I'm going to have to start taking myself seriously first.

Also, fuck retouching. My friends are beautiful and I'm not going to buy into the myth that they need skinnier arses to be attractive.To quote feminist Hulk: DON'T MAKE ME CRITIQUE YOUR COMPLICITY IN MALE PRIVILEGE. YOU WOULDN'T LIKE ME WHEN I'M CRITIQUING YOUR COMPLICITY IN MALE PRIVILEGE.

Argh, thank you. One of my friends who has gotten very into portraits recently is hitting photoshop a little too hard and it bugs me.

Yeh, I think I've come to a point where I actually have to state 'I'm not going to retouch pictures' and accept that it will probably lose me customers/mean my work gets poked and prodded by other editors, ugh.

Although you'll have to be clear about what you mean by that - I mean, you do smooth out blemishes and tidy hair and highlight features. You just don't cut bits off or slim bits down.

I appreciated how you tidied up blemishes/hair on my graduation photos. It made me very much less able to beat myself up for not having perfect skin/hair/whatever. I was able to just enjoy the photos, which is what I wanted to do. :)

If only you were willing to turn everyone into uncanny valley robots!
