Last month I found a lovely new model a real beauty the shoot was great and aiming for more next year.

On the day I didn't notice her freckles on processing I normal try and beautify the skin every technique I tried the freckles show up even more

A question if I completely redo her skin I'm not keeping her true character. So do we show the the true model or show a image just to stop the comments on her skin

I would like other models, togs, mua views as it held up my processing looking for the answer and still find it a answer very difficult.

Do what you want, they're your images.

Freckles are often pretty cool looking, I think if you don't appreciate them its probably best to shoot people without freckles. Im not certain how you managed to shoot someone with a camera and not notice their facehad freckles in any case? Apologies in advance for what reads as a stupid answer to a stupid question.

If you're doing a B&W conversion... make the red & yellow channels stronger as this will virtually eliminate them..

Of course if it was TF they are still your images but I would hesitate to try and remove them.

Amateur - happy to do TF with models with potential and enthusiasm. Website: www.mphodson.co.uk

Can you post an image of the offending freckles?

Obviously a filter will reduce them.....but why bother? I have seen some lovely head shots over the years from freckly models....

Freckles are lovely, I wouldn't dream of trying to remove them
If it walks like a duck, and talks like a duck, it could be my ex wife.

I agree jackass in the end I didn't touch them for two reasons one I found her one of the most beautiful ladies j have had the pleasure To pphotography . Also we agreed and discussed in great depth shoots for next year even the mua has agreed locations.
So I didn't notice because I found her such a delight on a chilly November day. Also the pictures are attracting fantastic remarks for her and me.
So I might be on winter rest but had a fantastic years once again with my photography and look forward to next year.
Well they do say your as good as your last pictures and I will dance on the ceiling for what I shot

If you shoot freckles "right" they can be the most beautiful thing EVER.

As a model with freckles I find that usually they aren't photographed to their "best" - I've found that harsh lighting really doesn't make freckles look very beautiful and that "less is more" when it comes to photoshopping said freckles.

Natural light + minimal editing + freckles is a beautiful combination.
