In this retouching demonstration, recorded LIVE, professional retoucher Viktor Fejes is given free rein to get as creative as he likes as he works on an image submitted by one of our Visual Education subscribers.
The techniques covered in this class will be familiar to those already comfortable working with Photoshop. It includes an overview of skin retouching, burning and dodging and healing, as well as a more detailed demonstration of colour correction and how to guide the eye using colour and contrast.
You’ll discover how a professional retoucher works and gain valuable insight into the tools, techniques and thought processes he uses to reach the final image.
As Viktor works through the image, he fields questions from members, addressing issues such as how to start learning Photoshop, pricing your work and how to submit images for retouching. He also touches on more technical elements such as the best monitors for retouching, calibrating your monitor and the importance of color theory.
