Important information for you
Beauty is a matter of taste, and everyone sees it in their own way.
Be sure to tell me about your preferences or send examples of what ideas you have in mind and how you would like to see your end result.
I am open minded and professional and can do various and diverse things. Therefore, just tell me exactly what end result you are looking for.
Or leave the processing of the photo at my discretion. I will make sure to do it beautifully.
Consult with me in advance about the images and, if possible, send me photos of possible options for clothes and accessories, so that I can help choose what will look more advantageous in the photo.
Also, if you have any of your ideas that you would like to implement — send me links to photos or screenshots of the photos themselves — so I can quickly understand the direction of the photo session you want.
«Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.»
— Aaron Siskind
Retouching is divided into basic and journal.
Basic retouching is usually sufficient for most customers. For large portraits I will work in more thorough ways «without soap» with preserving the texture of the skin.
Magazine retouching is needed by very particular customers who need maximum results, working through dozens of moments and details in the photo.
For reference and understanding the difference: in one hour I can complete about 4-7 photos in the Basic retouching, or only 1 photo in the Journal retouching.
