Re: Are retoucher's a dying breed?

retouching as it exists now might die, it feels like in another few years proper hard-retouching will be common place, it's not that hard to learn if you have someone show you the right way to do it, and everyone knows the basics of photoshop these days

and then when that sort of thing is a given, it'll become more about color stories/shifts and creative compositing and high-fidelity RGB/CMYK converstions and digitial capture processing. all that shit that makes a studio or a retoucher unique, like burger king's special sauce recepie

maybe i'll read a headline someday of one retoucher murdering another, or a retouching studio getting burglarized, and the only thing taken was a external hard-drive full of color profiles and capture-one settings and a library of film grain screens. cause in the end that's what photographers and creative directors will chase, and that's what will get you the hundreds of throusands of dollars in jobs, not how smooth you can get some girls cheek and still have it hold it's texture
