A fashion retoucher is certainly not immune to the woes of the western life, and can certainly notice it on him-self or his relatives. But the women that they retouch every day for fashion magazines and commercials are far from being a standard, and most of the time look like an alien or an oddities of nature rather than a normal human being in the 21st century. For most of them, the daily work within their agency confine to retouch a few spots on the face or to remove some wrinkles over a beautiful up-market skirt, but mostly it may consist of decorating the photo to make it more impressive, more professional and more arty.

Many of those prestigious fashion retouch artists would certainly turn pale if you would ask them to retouch a leg with cellulite, where the muscle is shyly hidden under a layer of laminated fat of several years. It is likely that, many professional retoucher, bristling with their CV full of the most prestigious fashion brands, may end up facing a challenge in their own job, and maybe would finally reject it as someone would denigrate the honorable work of the garbage collectors.

For having tried the experiment several times to recruit a brilliant professional retoucher, in order to work on pictures of showbiz people or private individuals, if half of them shall proudly refuse to work on such an unglamorous task, an other half would make the try, at least for the financial contribution, but in most of the cases the task will prove to be such a nightmare. How come a body can be so destroyed, they may wonder. Well, the showbiz and the TV world is not very well known for its healthy, balance way of living, and between the drugs, the alcohol and the restaurants, the aftermaths can be extremely destructive on the body.

The job of TV stars retoucher is a very thin area in the Photoshop world, much more close to the sculpture than to the arty decoration of the fashion magazines. If the modelling paste is a very simple tool to handle, to manage to sculpt a realistic body in it is far from an easy task. It requires a very good knowledge of the human anatomy, as well as a developed sensitivity for the curves of the body. But mostly, it demands a certain experience that cannot be compressed... We'll have to get bumbed off and retouch a lot of bodies, of any shape!
