  1. As a photographer I would like to shape the face with light and angles. I find that when muas add contouring it looks muddy and the shadows can seem off especially if not done right

  2. jeahn

    As a man with a beard, it’s pretty hard trying to determine my face shape. So I’ve made my own category, the “Oval Lumberjack” 😂 It requires no contouring, just a black and white edit with loads of “clarity” slider haha. In all seriousness though, this is a fantastic lesson 🙂 thanks
