My services include the following topics and skills, but not limited to:

Working with Local (corrective) and Global (contouring) D&B using non-destructive techniques.
Fixing a blotchy skin and uneven skin patches, evening out the skin tone, emphasizing the highlights and shadows of the image.
Identifying and fixing problematic skin color and color shifts.

Experimental and artistic stage of photo retouching.
The high-end beauty retouching workflow demands more precision, time, patience and attention to details.
I work in stages in a non-destructive way, and without leaving a clear and visible trace of retouching.
Therefore, this type of work takes an average of 1-3 photos per day.
A large project or a large group of images can take a week depending on the amount of complexity and demands regarding the images.
