New Learning: Portraits

I learned something new today. Something about portraits.

When we look at models on a glossy magazine of any kind, models have this sort of silky smooth skin. I thought it was just pure make-up and special lights that makes it look that way. Technology has it's share on how it's done nowadays as I have just learned.
