New member, first post!

I am Michael, I live in Manassas Park, Virginia... in the "Northern Virginia" area.

I am a budding photographer, and definitely a Photoshop junkie.

I recently saw Pratik Niak on CreativeLive, and so was inspired to seek further education from those that "can and do"!

Hello, I've just signed up, I'm a self taught full time retoucher based in London and figured it might be about time I learned some more stuff about my trade...

My photography is fairly mixed, but I will be focusing on Senior HS when things get rolling.

My retouch work has been for friends (photogs), touching up wedding and engagement images. After seeing Pritak Nial's Creativelive, I am starting to fiddle around with "top shelf" kind of glamour. I've just begun, so nothing to show off just yet, but I'm workin' on it.

Thanks for the kind welcome!

Re: New member, first post!

Hi everyone, I am David Kay and live in Arlington Heights IL. Been doing photography since forever. Yes, I still do film and process black and white in my dark room. I have a small business and specialize in black and white fine art photography. We travel the midwest doing art shows and also capturing rural America, One barn at a time.

I try to capture the fine art photos in the camera. However, there is always a need for editing. I enjoy doing restorations, and do so quite frequently as I prepare a photo show for a client. Always fun to bring their old faded historic photos to life.

Well that is me.

Hi David, welcome!

That sounds like great work you're doing.

What is this "dark room" you speak of? (Ha!)

The "dark room" is a place to go so that when you close the door, no one can bother you.
