I am practicing some color grading. This is one of the hardest things to master. I hope I have done it well.
My wife knows I like learning how to retouch pictures. She's always letting me take her pictures even without any makeup. She also knows that if I practice with the worst case scenarios, retouching will be much easier when I have access to more sophisticated initial portraits. I hope you like it.
I am here again want real critics so I can see my mistake and improve my work.It been Couple of month since starting my practices of retouching at my free time.

Any feedback to improve? I know I didn't start with the best image but I don't have any lights, just used an ikea desk light pointed at an angle and my ceiling lights. A lot of curve adjustments, then did a brights luminosity mask and did a curve adjustment on that mask to give the image a little pop / contrast

I live in Hollywood and often spend time roaming around with my camera. On a recent photo walk, I crossed paths with this excellent Marilyn Monroe impersonator and we took some pictures. It was at the end of the day and I completely forgot to check my settings, and ended up with some severely overexposed shots. Using Lightroom adjustments, I...
Hi everyone. I use lightroom in my windows 10, HP laptop( 2016 model) to edit jpegs and RAW files. Recently I opened up a picture exported from lightroom, on my macbook pro(mid 2012 model). And I was totally shocked to see the much more saturated, vibrant and vivid colours. The blues and greens looked more VIBRANT, but the reds, yellows and...
In this picture, I tried to follow the advice that some of you gave me concerning skin texture. I used a speedlight to lighten the face and get more texture. I respectfully ask you to give me your suggestions.
I'm interested in getting some feedback on a recent head shot I did. I try to use a light hand when it comes to retouching, especially for my clients who deal with the public. The last thing I want is someone being accused of not looking like their picture on the billboard or something along those lines.
Taken with a Nikon D610 + 50mm Nikor 1.8. I use only natural light.
Shot at New Smyrna Beach in Florida - we got lucky with a great sunrise. Lit with a Flashpoint Xplor shot into a 60" Softlighter camera left.

I did a basic edit to the background, adding in cooler temps to make her stand out more. Then I did an edit for her, with a slightly...
As a beginner photographer, one of the hardest things for me is taking a portrait that retains the skin texture. What is the best ISO to do it? What is the level of underexposure for the original shot? I took this shot of my wife, but the skin on her face does not look as I wish.
I wan review my work.Please help me to judge my work.

To celebrate my work anniversary of one year as a retoucher, I thought about challenging myself with some more demanding and complex image alterations in Photoshop at home with my personal images. I can tell you, it's way faster to clean up rooms in real life than in Photoshop, but it does not make you as proud. :D
Here are a few images...
My wife and I took this shot of our friend Naholy. She's a very talented girl with lots of dreams.
I want your opinions good, bad, and, ugly. I am open to any and all suggestions. I'm in an awkward phase of my photography and I could really use the help. Recently learned some new techniques in post so the critiques will definitely help.
