Re: Professional Vs Amatuer. Which retouch you cho

it's a shame that the 'odd' one or two lowlifes spoil this forum...people you do know there are other forums on the net that don't 'specialise' in retouching but have contributors there that don't need to lower themselves to insults, people there that have something constructive to say and encourage growth in knowledge whilst being highly knowledgable in retouching themselves. I advise you to find them and learn in a better envoiroment.

I would tell you where they are but I'm afraid that the stink I've found here will follow me over. Good luck to the normal people who stay here.

Finally look out for Rokcetscientist (lol. obviously he's not) and Silvafox both idiots both need a life.

bollocks to this forum!!!!

mlerrigo-
Overall, I agree with you. To be fair, I think the original poster was fishing for a compliment, but it didn't work out that way. My comment about Obama and Sharpton refers to a local news story here, and I couldn't resist.
What's bollocks?

hi

I am the original poster and I wasn't fishing for a compliment. I just did the retouch which I prefered to the first retouch, but the band member didn't think so..I just wanted the opinion of knowledgable people. wrong move!

Bollocks is an english term, its a slightly weaker version of telling this forum to go f ck itself.

So, you wanted to be able to prove to the band member that you were right and he was wrong?

Re: Professional Vs Amatuer. Which retouch you cho

#2, the center one was the "pro" version and yours was #3 if I understand rightly?

Which one is preferred by the band ought to be weighted by their knowledge of their own fan base a lot more than any of us speaking in the dark. The "experts"on this forum who seem to really know retouching are probably speaking from the technical perspective of post work, since everyone with the possible exception of you are in the dark as to their intended audience. So in a way a consensus here would not mean one was the best for the client, only that it was the best for technical or objective quality.
I think you could have had more to work with if the photo session was a little more interested in the optimum results for the client. A few minor pose changes would have simplified everyone's tasks.

I might be taking the subject on more as a photographer( but I am not, I am only a picture taker who just has fun) than as a re-toucher since I am just now learning the power of pp in the right hands. My first inclination would be to make sure the image was in the can as close as possible instead of knowing what could be done by relying more on pp from the start. A little rethinking is in order for me.

*sigh*

I get a little tired of people over reacting and getting horribly offended on this forum.

mlerrigo, you need to understand the climate of this forum and those who subscribe to it. Your question, whether intentionally or not, seemed cheeky. It seemed (again, whether on purpose or not) like an attempt to garner a few compliments, and not really a quest for learning. If you spent more time here, you would likely see that most of the users here like to give a hard time to anyone who does that, and so they poke at them a little. For the most part, they're joking around. Consider it hazing, I suppose. They don't mean any real harm.

You have to learn that a forum is an informal place and a lot of people treat it as such. Try not to take things so seriously. Life's just too short. I would implore you to spend a bit more time and get a feel for how this forum works, and maybe you'll end up liking it in the end.

ditto jam1212.

I try to use some discernment. I read through and pick out what looks helpful and useful (like CathyH's approach). I learn from those.
And then just ignore the rest.
I don't give anyone here (or elsewhere for that matter) the power to mess up my day.

Have a good.
Bruce
