Re: Best retouchers World has to offer?

Well I know very little (actually close to nothing) about retouching. So my opinion is of no value but I will give it anyway.
I checked a few links in this thread and all of the work is fantastic. Some of the models were beautiful but they were probably beautiful to begin with. Add a bit of skin tone, highlight the eyes, get rid of a freckle is real hard and they do a great job doing it.
But when I see a very poor quality image posted on this forum, what impresses me is the quality of the work done by some of the senior members. They have a poor photo to start with and it amazes me what they can do with it.
If I was giving marks, I would give 99% to a moderator (her work is excellent) and three senior members would come in equal second with a score of 98%.

Well thats my opinion anyway.

Yes your right pixelzombie. I am a member of Clive's team (creative retoucher) and he is one of the best CGI/Digital artists I have ever worked alongside. He has done quite a bit of work with Jim Fiscus, John Parker and Nigel Harniman who are all photographic artists in their own individual ways.

Re: Best retouchers World has to offer?

do you ever get to see the "before" shots from jim fiscus or are they already corrected by the time they arrive in the studio?

Re: Best retouchers World has to offer?

Hey Mac Monkey,

Nice to hear from a pro on this site. Why do you have some work on your site (carmello, escada) that was actually not retouched by you guys? You give the credit to Dario, but why put it up then?

And nice to see that the Eukanuba gets such exposure at your site. I know I hated working on it, but it's nice to see it get some exposure

Hi pixelzombie. No unfortunately Clive was the only person aloud to see the RAW image produced by Jim. It was all very secretive.

DJSoulglo, Dario works for us in Amsterdam. The gallery of images up on the site is from a mixture of people throughout the group.

pixel_monkey, your not the only one. I am at present trying to learn CGI myself to integrate it with my retouching skills. I think that the way things are going it will be a must in times to come.
