A Touching Tribute

Any photographer will tell you that there are few subjects greater or more challenging than the human face and any attempt to alter or retouch something so complex must be done with care and craft. Apparently, the photographer hired by Pam & Dave Zaring had other ideas.

According to the couple, the photographer was so unsatisfied with the way shadows fell on the family’s faces during the shoot that she was forced to digitally retouch them. However, she told her clients “that her professor never taught her to retouch photos”, and based on what she presented as her “final product”, we’re inclined to believe her.

Are these pictures worth the $250 the Zarings paid for them? To us here at Awkward Family Photos, we answer that with a resounding yes and consider these pictures to be truly priceless.
