This Is The Secret To Great Retouching...

So what makes for great retouching? It's all about keeping it natural. The most powerful retouching is so subtle that only you, the photographer, know it's there. 

Let's see simple retouching in action, shall we? 

#1. Remove blemishes & even out skin tone

Pesky blemishes and uneven skin tone can draw our attention away from our subject's eyes. Even subtle smoothing of our subject's skin helps bring the focus back where we want it. 

#2. Remove background distractions

Even with your best effort, sometimes you can't help but include distracting elements in your shot. But they don't have to stay! I'll show you how to make features like that fire alarm and door frame disappear in a flash. 

#3. Create a composite image (AKA swap heads!)

When you're photographing a big group, sometimes you simply can't get everyone looking at the camera at the same time. But you still have to deliver! I'll show you how to build a single shot from multiple photos and have it look totally natural. Easy!
