Just My Way of Retouching...


I've had a lot of people asking me of how i edit/retouch my photos after shoot. So i decided to post a speed video of my workflow. It's about an hour and half long but i managed to speed it up to about five minutes.
But i would like to say that...I am not a retoucher. My retouching skills are still not perfect. I just let my intuition as an artist guide me. I just do what feels "cool" for me. I use what i know to get what i want.
The most important thing is that I achieve whatever look or mood i am looking for in my photos 80% or 90% in camera. The rest is just how i play with the editing software which is Lightroom and Photoshop. The photo must be good already. Lightroom and Photoshop just helps me to enhance photo to be better. Now...if the photo is already bad you'd rather enhancing it to be worst.



 As you can see in the photo above, there is not much difference. There is only retouched skin and tonal difference. Everything else was achieved in camera. 


I will only advise that you become a good photographer. Make you of the tools available to you to achieve great results. Don't rely too much on softwares and plugins. Be an artist with your camera. Learn how to use it to achieve great results.

Watch the video on how i worked on this photo:
