Re: High-end Industry Retouching Techniques Video

Hey Chris I had q question for you and maybe other retouchers.
I have been recently having to retouch long hours and I was wondering how you all over come the dreaded Dizzy's from looking at a monitor all day for several days in a row.
The other day I actually felt sick from being on the computer all day and I thought, How the heck do retouchers get over that and what can you do to prevent it.
I also fortunately had time to finish the project but I know many who just cannot stop as the client wants or need everything yesterday, Literally!
What do you guys do in those case or how do you prevent getting the Headaches or in my case dissiness.
I have never seen this mentioned anywhere.
Thanks for any insight

Re: High-end Industry Retouching Techniques Video

I just look away from the monitors and look at the far wall in this dimly lit room every now and then to adjust my eyes, or just take a walk around the block. I used to mix retouching with cigarettes a lot, but I got rid of that habit. I've never had a headache, knock on wood, so I'm not sure if this will prevent you from getting one.

I tend to do as Pixel Monkey does. I get up and walk around every 15 minutes or so. Pretty much anything to look away from the monitor.
Never had dizziness. What's the refresh rate on your monitor?

For hands stress ball helps. Maybe your room is too dark?

Re: High-end Industry Retouching Techniques Video

I also get up and walk around and rest my eyes. My optometrist told me to look outside at natural daylight every hour or so... yeah haha. Anyway I have another problem: I was trying to push trough a huge project and my thumb starting hurting (I use a wacom stylist) by the third day my thumb was quite swollen. I have been to the doc who suggested I where a brace. That only seem to make it worst. After a few months of working this way it was not only swollen now it was bent and somewhat painful. I then went to an ortho hand specialist who gave me cortizone in the sheath of the tendon and said if two rounds don't work surgery will be required. That was two weeks ago and that has help somewhat. I am also going for physical therapy this weekend. Has anyone else come up with any repetitive stress problems and if so any suggestions?
Thanks!
~Nancy
