wedding retouching for wedding photographers
I have just launched a new service, wedding retouching at weddingretouching.co.uk a retouching service for wedding photographers. At Wedding Retouching we can recompose your photo, remove unwanted shadows and confetti or even people. Combine two or more photos together to create that moment you missed, or create a sense of mood or tranquillity. We can remove creases from clothes and colour black and white photos and turn images into silhouettes and more.

Photo retouching
Photo retouching a portrait or fashion shot.

If you need a portrait to have punch and depth its a good idea to clean up any distracting highlights or shadows to keep focus on the centre of interest. Add some depth of field to give a long lens look which also emphasises the main focal point. Most fashion is shot with a long lens to compress the facial features which gives a more flattering look. Wide angle lenses tend to emphasise noses and other unwanted protrusions. Once the main clean up is done the retouching the portrait can be carried out, smoothing skin and tone and shaping if need be. The final stage would be add the drama to the shot by creating and HDR look or high contrast black and white or other proven technique.

My take on a HDR style portrait and portrait retouch. Many thanks to Kenzins1977 for the image. Portrait retouching Notes: Portrait Retouched. Skin and reshaped nose, brightened eyes, lightened face, darkened image, made HDR style, dodged and burned to enhance drama, added depth of field to simulate a longer lens. Portrait retouching

From the flat and dull to the dramatic and punchy. Image-Restore for all your photo retouching needs

Photo retouching and airbrushing
Photo retouching and airbrushing? Don't Do It!

Does air brushing have a place is photo restoration? Personally I thuink they do not go together. Photos and airbrushing are from different time periods, air brushing is a relatively modern technique whether it is done with an electronic or traditional airbrush. Every photo has a character made up from the grain within the photo, the texture of the paper, and the aged look after years of handling. Don't expect me to airbrush over this and take away what history has provided. Many eastern restoration artists use this technique as a short cut to removing or covering up damage within the photo. 

Once this smooth finish is applied to part of a photo there are two directions the restoration can go. The first is more air brushing to 'improve' other damaged sections, thus the whole photo takes on a smoothed artificial look or the second where the initial airbrushing has the original photo texture and grain matched in to blend it seamlessly and thus keeping the character and correct historical feel. Which would you prefer?

Order a restoration from a dot.com site and the likely-hood it is based outside this country and most likely of eastern origin. Make sure you examine the website before and after photos and it will soon become evident whether the airbrushing has been heavily used. If their samples are too small to see what is going on it is likely they have something to hide. If you would like your photos to be accurately restored and not modernised and plasticised then stick with someone who cares about photo restoration, like us!
