Hey all,

I just thought I would post some of my digital re-touch work for you all to see.

I think each re-touch artist has their own unique “style†that they bring to each project. If multiple people were to re-touch the same image, you will see that each artist has their vision of what the image should look like.

Re-touching doesn’t always have to be “extreme†in nature. It can range from simple adjustments to complex error corrections and re-styling. Love when I get to add piercings or tattoo's to people lol.

This piece was a lot of fun to work on. Her makeup, styling and shots were all done professionally but she just felt the image lacked something … She explained that they were going for a “60’s glamour look with a mix of modern day pin-up.â€

For my color re-touch I didn’t want to do a vintage pinup look. I wanted to do a girl next door (playboy) look, meets bad girl (hustler).

60’s B&W glamour photos were about stark color contrasts … So with my B&W re-touch I wanted to do something more traditional 60’s. Soft, fragile looking skin, deeper eyes etc.



After: Color Retouch


After: B&W


In this next piece, I was asked to create an invigorated more youthful version of her. She loved the hair color I picked out for her so much that ended up re-doing her real hair lol. *Note my work is on the left



This next piece was interesting because I really loved the before photo … I really love the deep California style tan, and deeper layers. I also spent a lot of time on her eyes both in color and detail. *Note my work on the left



This last one I did in a very short period of time for fun. I call it “angelâ€, because I gave her a little bit of a glow (which is not very common in my work). *Note my work on the left.



Hope you all enjoy them. Look forward to hearing your thoughts.
