It is all in the details!!!!!

Ok guys, I have come to the conclusion that promoting your retouching on the web sucks. Unless, you do that wacky photo illustration or the monster compositing. So, I am revamping my galley and probably adding another here soon. The new concept is to show the details. Let me know what you think.

Thanks, -W

I like that idea better than showing low res files, and i think the most successful image of your retouching skills is the composition of the face split in half. Not only is it showcasing your skills, but it draws your audience in. Nice site by the way.

Visited there before. The close ups are big improvement. Anybody can hide retouching flaws in small images.

Re: It is all in the details!!!!!

Oh and to answer the question. I did not shoot that but I was on set as the tech. If I remember correctly, we were using a couple of prophoto 7b's with 4 silver beauty dishes, cranked up all the way. The contax 645 we were shooting with, does not have a leaf shutter. So, it was probably something like f22 at 125th to compensate for the lack of shutter speed and still be able to balance the sun light.

Thanks for the feedback.
Everyone...look what the equipment does prior to the retouch (especially those reading the dave hill thread). It is the total process...beginning to end. A photo shot and lucis will not save a crappy shot.

Great site. Clean design and easy to navigate and with focus on the pictures. I also like the concept of showing the details. As someone pointed out it's easy to hide flaws in lo res files. Great pics as well. Well done!
