Photo Retouching: The Distracting Friend

About the Client

My cousin had a crush on her college classmate, Matt, shown here. This photo she took of him on a geological field trip would have been perfect for staring at, wistfully, if only a rambling friend hadn’t photobombed the frame.

About the Photo

I removed the offending friend and recreated the missing rocks in his stead. The before photo, inset, and the after photo are displayed here.
