Taking a photograph is just the beginning. Photo retouching and processing is where photography comes to life. I am experienced in photograph retouching and editing from simple colour adjustments to extensive editing and manipulation.
Some of my photograph retouching skills include: colour correction, black & white conversion, skin retouch, blurring backgrounds, removing imperfections, correcting exposure, noise reduction, highlights recovery, cropping and removing unwanted objects. My photograph retouching skill set covers both Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom software packages. The majority of my editing for colour grading, exposure correction, shadows/highlights and sharpening adjustments are done in Lightroom. The remaining editing including skin retouching is then done in Photoshop.
Below are some examples of an original image versus the final edited version. All of these photos were edited in Adobe Lightroom and/or Photoshop.
