  • Hello to all the RetouchPro gang

    Looking to upgrade my retouching skills and this site looks like a great place to hang out. Just finished 2 years of photography studies at the local college so I have a general understanding of CS2. I just need some practice! I'll take a stab at one of the challenges soon.

      Great to have you... Look fwd to seeing some of your work.

      In your photo studies did you do anything with film or slides or just digital?

        Hi Danny.
        We spent the first year (sep05-apr06) mainly on film and mainly on the 4x5 view camera. Developed and printed in the darkroom. While we were off for the summer they converted the darkroom into a computer lab full of Macs and the second year (sep06-apr07) we were into digital photography and photoshop big time although we still used the 4x5 for interior & exterior architecture using E6 (Echtachrome). Over the two years we covered advertising (products), portraits (all kinds), food, macro, architecture, multimedia applications (flash, powerpoint), and of course a multitude of lighting scenarios. (just a shortlist)
        The last two years are just a blur and I wonder how it went so fast!
        - Doug

          I'm so happy to have found this forum! I just got a box full of all my family's photos, some dating back to 1969. The ones relevant to me are circa 1984 and beyond. Unfortunately some have the pesky double exposure that plagued wound film cameras. Saying I'm thankful for no longer needing to hunch over...

          Can I just say hello to all RetouchPRO members, photography is my passion and I changed from film to digital about a year ago. I had my own darkroom then but I must say I enjoy my clean digital room and the potential the computer offers with appropriate software. I use Photoshop, but not very well and...

          I am new to this community and just wanted to introduce myself. I started photographing as a hobby with film, yes FILM. Then because of life's busy schedule I set my hobby aside. I have recently picked up my hobby again with the digital revolution and I am addicted.

          Just thought I'd introduce myself. Just stumbled onthe site. I live in West Yorkshire in the UK.

          I'm just a hobbyist but like to stretch myself. I started abt 3 years ago with landscapes but now find myself being more and more interested in candid monos.

          I admire many photographers...
