Retouching and photo editing
Retouching and photo editing is as old a craft as photography itself and I have been doing it for many years. I have had many satisfied clients whom I have helped to move their photographs to their dream image. My goal is to retouch the photos, as subtly as possible, yet in such a way that the result is distinctive and does not get lost in the noise of thousands of photos, which are nowadays overwhelmed by soc. networks. Even though I like fine editing, I can do very complex photo editing if needed. Most of my work can be found in my portrait portfolio.
WHAT IS PHOTO RETOUCHING AND EDITING?
In general, retouching can be said to be the highlighting or suppression of various elements in a photograph. These include line alignment, removing distracting parts from the photo, skin editing, removing people from the photo or correcting colors, sharpening, highlighting, etc.
Retouching is nothing new under the sun and even in the days of black and white photography we would have come across photo retouching. Nowadays, almost all photos that are commonly found on the Internet and beyond are already edited in some way, so there is no reason to be afraid of photo editing.
