Red face New to the scene from Columbus, Ohio

Hi everyone!

My name is Katie. I'm 26 and employed as a web designer. I do a weekly webcomic/illustrated journal called NEXT YEAR'S GIRL.

I've been retouching photos on and off since 2006. I worked as a web production artist for Abercrombie & Fitch for nearly three years, retouching on average 50-100 images of clothing for their site each day, which awarded me a keen eye and a ton of valuable experience in photo adjustment. I retouch photos of mine for fun, and really love working on beauty and fashion shots.

I'm looking for experience doing beauty/fashion so I can build up a portfolio and do some freelance retouching. If anyone has suggestions as to where I might find some photos to practice on (of course, I will happily credit the photographer!), that would be an incredibly helpful resource. Yesterday, I found the immensely useful thread of photos by Jasz, and had a great time working on some of his lovely photos (will post soon). Camera RAW files would be super.

Please feel free to say hello, and to offer critique when I post retouched photos; I'm hoping to learn from each of you and share what small insights I may have to offer! Thanks a lot!

-Katie
