Time-Lapse Videos That Demonstrate the Painstakingly Detailed Process of High Fashion Photo Retouching

RARE Digital Art NYC, who boasts a number of elite clients, has released several videos demonstrating how Head Retoucher Elizabeth Moss goes about perfecting the high fashion images and videos that have been put in front of her. Each of the videos show a painstakingly time-consuming process that’s been abbreviated through the use of time-lapse photography. In an interview with PetaPixel, Moss talks about why what they do is so unique.

These videos are unique because none of the high end retouchers make these type of videos, so the quality of the other before and after retouching videos available online are pretty terrible and not at all representative of what is typically done on high fashion editorials and campaigns. With all the talk about photoshop use or overuse, I thought it would be interesting for people to see how we actually add pores to skin.
