The very idea of handing over your cherished photography to an image retoucher strikes fear into the heart of many professional photographers, we get that. Why wouldn’t it; you have created a visual masterpiece and the last thing you want is to imagine it ruined by an over-zealous (or inexperienced) photo retoucher. Historically it’s quite difficult for many photographers to relinquish control over their work as, understandably you will wonder if the retoucher will both share and respect the vision you have in your head, with pictorial reference to how you wish your image to evolve courtesy of minimal image revisions applied by the retoucher.
The thing is, photographers can free up so much more time by outsourcing the editing to a trusted image retouching company. And thankfully we have always taken on board photographer’s concerns, and quickly gained trust courtesy of the quality of work we provide. Hence why we count so many among our client list; and moreover those who have a habit of returning to us, as and when their business dictates.
We’re a Professional Photographer’s Best Friend
One of the main reasons photographers are happy to work with us and have Digital Touch collaborate on their photoshoot retouching is that we’re conscious of how ‘less is more’ in the world of image editing. As the days of notorious Photoshop excessiveness are on the wane, clients are seeking photo retouching companies which focus on implementing lighter, more subtle and above all else, natural correction jobs. For all intents and purpose, a less visibly ‘retouched’ look.
It’s second nature for accomplished retouchers like ourselves to perfect small flaws in an image that a photographer was unable to resolve in-camera as such, and to make a subject appear fresh while conversely not making it look in any way retouched. That’s our skillset.
A Good Image Retoucher Compliments a Photographer’s Work
The mark of a good image editor is to possess an eye for art, a feel for compositional values, an awareness of the components of visual art and the rudimentary knowledge of the elements of photography. As once a photographer has shot their latest body of work, it’s our responsibility thereafter to enhance their imagery as guided by them; as our client. They readily expect our team to further accentuate an already impressive image and fundamentally create a retouched image that makes the target demographic question whether or not the photo has actually been edited at all.
