1. 3 quarter view
a view from a position midway between a front view and a side view

considered best view to have because it will give more info about fullness
2. Retouched portraits VS snapshots
SNAPSHOTS!!!

retouched portraits often have reduced or erased natural and acquired facial markins
3. Highlights (lighter)
appear on a surface lying at right angles to the source of light

they reflect the maximum amount of light

they correspond to eminences or any full area

highlights are areas that project
opposite of highlights

these are surfaces that do not receive the full rays of light

correspond to grooves or depressions
5. Contrast
the degree of difference between highlights and shadows
6. Mathematical computation
when using a photo to restore a missing feature on the body's face

this is a ratio of the subjects measurements with the photo's measurement

the ratio problem uses 3 unknowns and 1 unknown
7. mathematical computation

Columns: known and unknown feature
Rows: body and photo
1. make a grid

2. cross multiply

3. reduce down

if any other features are missing add another column to the grid

solve in the same manner

work with 4 boxes at a time
8. The ear is missing

body: ear (X) - head (175mm)
photo: ear (2mm) - head (7mm)

what is the length of the missing ear in inches?

remember: 1 inch = 25mm
• (7)(X) = 7X
• (2)(175) = 350

350/7 = 50mm

50/25 = 2 inches
9. The eye is missing

body: neck (125mm) - (X)
photo: neck (5mm) - eye (1mm)

what is the width of the eye on the body?

remember: 1 inch = 25mm
• (125)(1) = 125
• (5)(X) = 5X

125/5 = 25mm

25mm = 1 inch
10. body: nose (75mm) - ear (X)
photo: nose (3mm) - ear (2mm)

what is the length of the missing ear?
• (75)(2) = 150
• (3)(X) = 3X

150/3 = 50mm

50/25 = 2 inches
11. body: neck (150mm) - (X)
photo: neck (6mm) - eye (2mm)

what is the width of the eye on the deceased body?
• (150)(2) = 300
• (6)(X) = 6X

300/6 = 50mm

50/25 = 2 inches
