My client need the images from their beauty photo shoot retouched naturally, while strategically keeping some sand on certain parts of the model’s body.

Naturally retouched headshots are an essential component in any industry. My client is a professional dancer and needed her headshots retouched, naturally.

Keep it Natural – Headshot Photo Retoucher

Headshot retouching is usually a necessity, but make sure you keep it natural. I always recommend natural photo retouching to my clients. Natural is relative, so don’t represent yourself as any different than who you really are—or at least who you are with great lighting, good makeup and a lot of sleep.

Beauty retouching – Tiff, Jpeg or Raw?

My client’s client had a beauty product line and they wanted the photo retouching to be natural, with a little extra punch. Though I advise high res raw files, sometimes clients only have medium to high res jpeg or tiff files. I do my best to retouch almost any file, though depending on what the images…

When retouching males, it’s really important to keep it as natural as possible. Every client and order has their own retouching needs. What’s natural to one client may not be natural to another.

Ra Retouching – Headshot Retoucher

My client had a series of images he needed retouched. Being able to see the model in various angles and positions, I was able to determine what she may look like in person, since I only see two diminutional images. I do not like to stray too far away front the subject’s true features, but…

Though natural retouching was a must, there needed to be an element of flawlessness to the images to give it a slightly over surreal meets sexy feel. I try to understand my clients needs and intent, which is…

Ra Retouching – Beauty Photo Retoucher

My client wanted natural retouching for his beauty series. Keep the model looking real, fresh and modern. Natural is relative, so to my client, they wanted the major things removed or reduced, but to keep the skin texture, some shadows/highlights and overall feel.

Advertising Retouching – Photo Retoucher

This was a project for one of my product clients. They needed the image to be retouched naturally, yet flawless. Besides that I love retouching naturally, I love retouching males. It’s more challenging to keep a male looking natural and masculine.

Ra Retouching – Headshot Photo Retoucher

Natural retouching is crucial for headshots. Being a former model and actress, I completely understand what agents need and what clients and casting directors want. Unfortunately, it’s hard to see the subtle touches on this image due to the small blog size and forgiving web.

Natural Photo Retouching – Photo Retoucher

I wish my blog images were larger so you could see the detail. With that said, this was a pretty straight forward request. Natural retouching, with some graininess and contrast. Very subtle changes to the image really did make an overall impact on the feeling and anesthetics.
