This portrait is of Gloria, Gerardo and Jonathan's mom. It is from a photo I took a few months ago. I needed a break after doing the first few portraits. Although she's probably in her mid-fifties I think she looks more like 35-40 from my post processing. I only went through my usual remove sun damage, minimize wrinkles, and touch-up skin routine that I always do. I didn't apply special effects. It helps that she was already beautiful to start. I only had to remove the horrible signs of aging and fix the lighting.
Gerardo was happy and surprised when he saw it last night and he gave it his approval. I hope you like her portrait too.
If you would like a photo-portrait for you, a family member, or a friend, please let me know. If you want it non-exclusive and will buy your print from Imagekind or Redbubble and don't have any special requests the cost is my normal artwork markup. If you want exclusive prints of the finished work (I don't make it available for prints to others), or if you want a high-resolution jpg for making your own prints there will be an additional charge. I can take your photos here in Mexico City or you can send several high-resolution photos by e-mail. It would make a great Christmas or birthday gift!
Gloria 1 by Christopher Johnson
La mamá de Gerardo y Jonathan, Gloria es una señora bonita y bueno con solo editar lo que pasa con todos con los añitos y el maltrato del sol, le quite mas o menos 15 años de edad. La foto original tomé hace unos 2-3 meses en una fiesta. No tuvo tiempo para arreglarse y bueno no fue necesario. De hecho prefiero editar las fotos de gente con una imagen mas natural.
Si te interesa un retrato para ti, tu pareja, un familiar o un mejor amigo, pongamos de acuerdo para tomar las fotos aquí en Cuautitlán (en el norte de la Ciudad de México) o me puedes enviar por correo electrónico unas fotos de alta resolución.
El costo depende de como quieres el trabajo y si quieres que sea exclusivo o no.
Gerardo's mom, The photo was touched up to remove sun damage and minimize wrinkles.
