Airbrushing

What Is Photo Airbrushing?

Airbrushing is the technique of skin smoothing which is done by removing blemishes, wrinkles etc and presenting an image with even skin tones and consistent texture.

The “airbrush” is a air powered pen which sprays a paint or colour in an even and consistent way across a surface, eliminating brush strokes. Now translate this airbrushing process into a digital environment and you have a technique to smooth or even skin tones in a photograph in a way that retains realism, and done right, avoids the subject looking like a doll with plastic features.
