Photo Retoucher | Commercial Retouching

As a photo retoucher, nothing is more satisfying than taking 2 or more images and making them into one perfect image for your client. This particular commercial retouching project, my client needed an image to come to life by using 3 images that were not exactly what the client needed and transforming them into that one perfect image….

Even Photo Retouchers need a consistent portfolio

I’ve been blogging lately on my different websites on how crucial it is to keep your portfolio consistent. Whether a photographer, model, makeup artist, you need to create a signature look, which means your images in your portfolio should truly represent you and your work to make you stand out. When you hear a new song…

Photo Retoucher | Affordable Rates

My clients ask me why my rates are less than the average professional photo retoucher (in the USA). The main reason why I offer affordable rates is because I do not factor in my sales and administration in my rates. I charge for just the time I open a file to the time I save the file….

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.

Photo Retouching – Photo Retoucher

My client needed this image to pop and posses a different feeling than the original image. With some subtle and natural retouching, color correcting and with a little bit of this and a little bit of that…it’s exactly what the doctor ordered. 😉

All Images need some retouching – Photo Retoucher

My client was updating her modeling portfolio and wanting some natural retouching for several images. Her image just needed a little here and there, but that subtle amount of retouching really makes the image pop and look finished. No distractions. A nice sold image to help get her next booking.

From Start to Finish – Photo Producing

Teen fall fashion story. I started with creating the concept, hired all talent, (make-up, hair, stylist, model) art directed, selected the strongest images and of course, finished with my retouching skills. When I booked the model, the photographer was nervous about it, but I knew I had a gem and she did shine! Whether I’m…

Retouching is not just for photographs…

What most people don’t realize is retouching is also found in videos, commercials, tv and film…it’s everywhere! I just saw the movie, What to expect when you are expecting. It was so overly retouched, I couldn’t concentrate on the movie, just the overly airbrushed faces, though it was a bad movie to begin with. “Email…

Body Retouching – Professional Retouchers

This was a simple request from my client…natural retouching to enhance what the model already has. Some slight body contouring, natural skin retouching, slight color correcting and other simple, but essential changes; this image works beautifully.

Body Retouching – Retouchers

My client needed their swimwear images retouched and color corrected naturally with some pop. A lot of swimwear images whether catalog, magazine or online, are overly retouched and can distract the consumer with how unreal the model looks vs. how great the swimsuit is. When I retouch, my objective is keeping the image free from…

Photo Producer – Not just a retouch artist

When I had my jewelry company, I knew when I produced my photo shoots, my calling was not a jewelry designer, but photo producing, creating concepts, directing photo shoots, selecting the strongest images, retouching, designing, the whole shebang!
