  • Hello

    Just wanted to say Hi! I have been a photographer for fifty years or so. I have done weddings, church directories, nature/landscape, portraits, etc. Lately I have been doing animal photos; love it! Much better than screaming babies or temperamental brides! I have been using photoshop since version 3 but am hardy a pro at it. Recently started learning my way around Affinity Photo. I am wanting to learn how to retouch better and also do restorations better. I am going to start doing so model work so some better retouch techniques would be most helpful. I am most appreciative of any help or advice I can get! Criticism is welcomed too. Good to be here. Thanks

    Hi Steve
    thanks for your introduction! My profile as hobbyist is quite the same! Photography for years, starting with Photoshop 5 years back and having first experiences with Affinity Photo.
    I also look for criticism and advice to improve my retouch work. May field if photography is studio model photography, so a lot of skin retouching etc..
    I am looking forward to explore retouch pro..
    Have fun and a great weekend.
