PROOFS to final Retouched images

Step 1 - selection & crop

  • I start by selecting the images that have the best expression.   I mainly look at the eyes and the mouth.

  • Next I will crop each selected image.

Step 2 - exposure correction

  • Each image is examined for the correct color balance and adjusted

  • The light intensity, highlights and shadows are adjusted to pleasing limits

  • The completed proofs are rendered into an album.

  • The proofs are water marked as a proof with the image number.

  • PROOF C1234

  • The client is requested to make their final selection(s) and record the image numbers.

Step 3 - Retouching 

  • Each image selected by the client will be "retouched".

  • All facial blemishes will be removed.

  • Final levels of light intensity, highlights and shadows will be set

  • Harsh aging lines will be softened.

  • Lighting highlights will be corrected to create the best look of the overall image.

  • The overall skin tones will be smoothed to create a natural effect.

  • The final images will be created and delivered to the client based on the Service Agreement specifications
