Why does Photo Retouching so often involve legs

When your camera misses out a vital part of your picture or even captures a bit that you don’t want in your picture,  get me to have a look at it and see what I can do.
Here’s a few I did earlier to allow for format changes when published:
This just needed a bit more leg painted to match and more background to fit the proportions needed for the promo. poster


Strip Lights were caught on the photographer’s image, reflecting on the highly polished floor. Some retouching and they are gone!


A wider image was needed for this tour promo. for Magnum so I added a matching background and a bit of trouser (not shown here)


Shot against a busy studio background, this photo needed clouds adding and lightening around the giant guitar chair plus mist around the lead guitarist’s feet.


But not all Photo Retouching involves legs …

> The original airbrush illustration for this ‘OCEAN ONE’ poster was square format. It needed to be A3+ (330mm x 450mm) for use as a poster so we added a higher (under sea surface) structure by changing its perspective and rendering to match original.
