  • image analysis

    Sorry for the title.

    I wanted to ask a question to other retouchers.

    before i ask , I want to know how you look at a picture and define it? if you were ever a musician or recording engineer then you will understand this. In other words back in the day when i listened to music I studying the music. I deconstructed everything- reverse engineered everything. tones are like hertz. tints are like hi frequencies of luminosity lol (disagree whatever)

    just having fun here.

    lately, i have been taking pictures and deconstructing them. I will make a chart or list of identifiable elements. for example: I start with compostion., shadows and highlights, color and focus. I write them down! Everyday I wil do this for 10 pics! if you want to be really want to be awesome at it you wil do more.
    every retoucher needs to become a photographer!!!

I have done a couple "things" to the pic so far, but I am wondering what other people would do if they had a chance. Grunging it up, desaturating, adding noise,...

        Do you judge by the befores or the afters?
        by cyberphonics
        Greetings all! Just curious about opinions on this and I figured that retouchers would be more familiar with and have had more access to the Befores than the general public who typically only sees the Afters.
        1. When you (personally) say that someone is a great photographer, are you basing that

        Terminology, terminology. Is it retouch or edit?
        by skoobey
        Ah, another client that called me "image editor". It is both funny and sad.

        So why do so many people don't know what they're looking for?

        Image editor=retoucher, graphic editor=illustrator. Where did they hear of this "editor" position when it is them...
