Detroit Michigan Modeling Portfolio Photography by Mary DuPrie Andi has such great bone structure and can take very hard light.  Once in awhile though I run into the problem of skimming over a models face which highlights the peach fuzz on the side.  I find it to be an exceptionally hard retouch, to the point […]
