High End Retouching By Cristian Girotto

High End Retouching By Cristian Girotto

I know that high end retouching is not everyone's cup of tea. For me though, I love fashion and beauty photography, and because of that I love amazing retouching work. I understand that different people view photography differently, and to me that's what is so cool about photography. It can be so many different things to so many different people. I digress, anyway, I was recently shown the high end retouching work of Cristian Girotto from Paris and I was blown away. Whether high end retouching is your thing or not, there is no denying the talent which Cristian possesses.

Interview With Fashion And Lifestyle Photographer Mike Monaghan

I have never personally met Mike, however I can't seem to get away from him. He definitely has some amazing shots that stand out from the rest of the crowd. I know Mike through a Facebook group called CREATIVOS, which is a group for photographers looking to share tips, tricks, and images and grow within the industry. I keep seeing his work pop up and can't take my eyes away from it.

One thing I love about the Fstoppers Facebook Group is seeing all the amazing work our readers publish. Taylor Tupy is a pretty awesome fashion and editorial photographer based out of Minneapolis. In this video he shared on Facebook, Taylor brought in gulf coast white sand into the studio to produce an awesome effect. Taking your production value to the next level is probably the most important thing a photographer

At 43 years old, No Doubt frontwoman Gwen Stefani poses for Annie Leibovitz for the January cover of Vogue magazine looking spectacular. A short behind the scenes video of the shoot was shared. While there is no instructional content in the 3 minute video it is interesting to get a behind the scenes peek into the shoot and see how the different sets are put together. While most of the shoot was of Gwen wearing some amazing threads, her band did make a cameo appearance in some of the shots.

Mario Testino's In Your Face Exhibit At MFA Boston

Mario Testino's In Your Face Exhibit At MFA Boston

I woke up this morning to an iPhone picture from my dad. It was a picture of a wall that said "Mario Testino In Your Face." Ok dad, you did it, I am intrigued. Upon further investigation my dad and my little sister had gone to the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston to check out the exhibit today and told me it was amazing. Well I live exactly 2,725.2 miles from the MFA, so I had to just do some online research for myself. If you live in the New England area though, this looks like an amazing exhibit you don't want to miss.

Jens Haugen Knows What It Takes To Get A Good Photo, Go BTS To See How He Does It

Go behind the scenes with photographer Jens Haugen. Jens produces some amazing work. Probably because he shoots with a hasselblad,(jokes). A lot of work goes into fashion photography like this. From Mua's, Art Directors, Stylist, ect.. every person has an important role in developing the finished product. Not having a entourage should not discourage you tho, it just means you have to work harder and pay attention to detail with a fine tooth comb. For instance the color schemes in these photos are very well constructed and tie her outfits in with the BG. The balance of light and the way they use the light to shape her face is really beautiful too.

Check Out These Dramatic Celebrity Transformations Via Retouching

We recently came upon this gallery of before-and-after images of a few well known celebrities as seen in fashion magazines and large scale advertising campaigns. These are, it would seem, examples of just how far an image can be taken in post to make it usable for publication or advertising use. While the value of these photographs could be debated for days (some will say they're worthless, that the retouching is horrible,

Interview And Behind The Scenes With Fashion Photographer Luke Schneider

I have been following Luke Schneider's work for quite some time and it just keeps getting better and better. He has a nack for fashion photography and it clearly shows. I decided to find out a bit about him and what his goals are for the future and current project. He is still in college so he has quite a bit of time ahead of him to achieve his goals. From the looks of it, he is well on his way there.
