    Your style or no style?

    Hi
    I would like to hear your input on this "should a retoucher have a style?". I mean is the retoucher one that mimics the work of the photographer and does what he dosnt have the time or skills to, or does he add his own style to the pictures?
    Ofcause the retoucher needs to...

    Maman Schoeller's Style
    by alexandre
    I just wanted to thank all the great contributors to this site. Over the past few weeks I have learned a tremendous amount. My mother wanted a Schoeller Big Head shot, and not having the patience to wait for the Fuji to be process I had a go at it with photoshop.
    THanks

  • Took a crack at Andrzej Dragan's style

    I decided to take a crack at Andrzej Dragan's style (acknowledging that his style varies, but I think I've come pretty close to his spirit) and came up with this, after reviewing an old thread on here where some folks were trying to figure him out.

    Let me know what you think. I used the image everyone decided to test their skills on.

    Before

    After

    On second thought, having had a second to sit back and see what I did, I made this next adjustment that I think brings the piece closer:

      Well, the critique forum has never been the most active of the forums on RP.
      I think you did a great job. Either one of the two look fine and seem right in line with Dragan's style.
      Regards, Murray

          Would you show us the steps you took to get these results?

            I use curve adjustments, color adjustments, and a degree of good ol' high pass. Beyond that, I can't really say. My methods vary a little with each piece. It's more a developed art than a science.

            Careful comparison of the before and after + a good understanding of what Photoshop can do should be all you need to know.
