But of course in RAW, shooting under and over doesn't really mess up the image beyond tweaking it for a near perfect output

Thanks for the complement. Not sure if I'm shooting it the right way, other than it seems to work for me. I'm still trying out different set-ups, light boxes, strobes, cont light, cool daylite bulbs.

BTW, I have heard that the really bigtime jewelry specialists are located in NYC, the ones that do the really high end ads you see in Harper's, Vogue and similar

Re: Best retouchers World has to offer?

The great Steves and the Marios are all handled here.

Have you guys heard of/worked for Splashlight Studios? I've seen them cropping up a bit.

And btw, regarding retouching credit, I just picked up an issue of V Man, and in most the editorials, the retouching house is listed, I thought it was very cool.

Re: Best retouchers World has to offer?

Chris, ok.

The Veed. I've shot and worked on jobs at Splashlight. They are primarily a rental studio, albeit a nice one (I love their catering). But, maybe they are moving into offering retouching also. Regarding retouching credit, I will occasionally receive credit and have in the past also - mostly for editorials, but a couple of years ago I got credit for a Nokia ad campaign (6235) that was a selection of the month or something at Le Book.

No it is an offshoot of Coloredge. The salesman broke off and took a bunch
of retouchers with him. AMong the clients were Steve and Annie and some other large catalogue work. Damn. I need to check my books when I get home. I have the name on some of my invoices.

Steve

Meisel is extremely reclusive. He rarely if ever leaves his studio/apt.
In fact, for one job I had to go there with the salesman in order to know what he wanted. Very different. At least for me.
Check out my website. Thee is a list of everyone there(nearly complete) that I have worked with. Right now I am doing another image for Michael Thompson.

I love Avedon's work and would have loved to work with him also. I have doen some work with one of his contemporaries, Melvin Sokolsky. And had an opportunity (hopefully still) to work with one of the last greats around, Hiro. That I would jump at the chance to do.

Chris
Chris, since you have worked with Steven Meisel, I finally found a video link on youtube from the 80's on an actual photo shoot. He looks like he is having fun with the models, he almost resembles Alice Cooper in the eye makeup dept, haha

Steve,

I think we've seen the same thing. I taped a segment of a show called Behind Closed Doors, a late 90s-early 2000s show on A&E hosted by Joan Lunden. I think the company was called NEC, not to be confused with the Japanese electronics company. The retoucher worked on what appeared to be a Scitex Blaze system. It seems to be a Blaze given the the only visual reference to the system I've seen online, presented by the guy who designed its interface. Check it out: http://www.rozin.com/insideout/proje...opup.asp?id=31.

Man, I love seeing those proprietary systems.

Back to the thread...
