I really wanted to focus on the differences and similarities between photoshop and plastic surgery in this assignment. I see degrees of retouching as mimicking certain plastic surgery techniques. So I researched common plastic surgery procedures and determined how I could mimic results in photoshop. So before I shoot, I drew lines on my model's face that would dictate the areas that I would enlarge, push, pull etc. I also researched and applied commercial techniques such as airbrushing and selective dodge/burn.
