To Retouch or Not to Retouch...

... that is my question when I'm doing a self-portrait. Is it more honest to leave all the blemishes when you're exploring who and what you are or is it okay to soften things a little?

Even when you have 20/20 or better vision, don't you really gaze upon others (and yourself) with an emotional filter? Hmmm... that's my conundrum as I work on my latest project.


What do you think?...

That is a good question. You know when I see both pictures, I see a beautiful woman who sometimes wants to show the world one face and at other times another one.
