Tutorial Description

In this photo taken by Angela, the sun has made some harsh shadow’s underneath Alex’s (the models) eyes. We’re not going to completely remove the harsh shadow because in order to do that to make it look good we would have to remove the harsh shadow on his shoulder as well. Instead we just weaken the darkness of the shadows underneath his eyes by going into curves and evening the shadows and the highlights.

Angela didn’t have a reflector with her during this photoshoot, but if she did she would easily be able to fix the shadows underneath Alex’s eyes with one. All you would have to do is open the reflector to the translucent side, and put it above the subject. It would act as shade therefore eliminating the hard shadows.
