copyright is a dark doormouse, as of maybe 5 years ago, a 15% difference in the graphic content in Australia consituted a claim for copyright. Maybe different now, maybe different elsewhere also. Was attached to artwork, but heck, define artwork

Stirrin it up....

Wow, sounds like I might have stirred up a hornet's nest

The perfect example of our industry and the pros that make those images look so amazing and transparent is similar to the CIA lobby.. all those "unknown" operatives who died in the line of duty who's lives were reduced to a single, anonymous star on a wall. Maybe we're a noble breed, like the Samurai of old who don't seek recognition, fame or wealth but study the art and devote their lives to an ideal....

What the hell am I talking about? I livei in friggin New York City!!! Somebody stop me already


Chris....

We need to talk

Hi Doug... Yup.. that's essentially it. The rest is up to you. It's not much different than the gray layer d&b technique, but i've added some helpful hints to make the job a bit easier..

As for the trade secrets... I'm sure Chris(being Italian like myself) will agree that we COULD share more, but then we'd have to kill you....

This may be considered heresy, but retouching is a craft, not really an art. It can come close sometimes, but our task is to make someone else's work look even better. The job of retouching has plenty of exciting challenges and rewards, but there will be few clients who will want to recognize you with more than a thanks and a check.

I agree with the dodge and burn by channels method being one of the most efficient methods for skin edits. Reality is richer than the imagination; skin detail can be faked relatively easily, but seldom is it done in a convincing way. However, client taste varies...what works for Clairol may horrify an art director at Vogue...
