This may sound kind of weird, and perverted, but it's not. If you put a leotard over the lends of your camera/camcorder and record/take a picture it'll give it a soften skin effect, depending on the color, thickness, etc: etc: and you can get some cool, and different effects just by using that.
You should try checking that out sometime too. as the image does look a bit rough, I think making it soft on the background and having the detail on the ordainment would make it look better, although not so much bumping as it as in the picture. Maybe lowered down a bit.
I'm not much into Photography, I'd like to give it a try, but my cell phone camera doesn't cut it.
