STEP ONE: RE-TOUCHING AND OPTIMIZATION
It's always recommended that you have your final image selections retouched professionally. Although an image can look amazing out of the camera there's nothing like an expert retoucher putting the finishing touches on your images for both print and web.
Every photo can be adjusted to improve the dynamic range or digitally altered to remove distractions and keep the attention on you and your energy. Photo optimization adjusts the contrast, tone, color and saturation of your photos.
Our philosophy is simple. Eliminate distractions and that’s it. Whether it’s a small blemish or a logo on a shirt, we can remove it so the focus of the photo is on you and your energy. One Light re-touch each look is included with shoot. Additional light retouch is $10.00 per photo. If you chose to have heavier retouching the photo lab I recommend, Pixels LA, has excellent retouchers. Retouchers can provide alterations to the shape of your body or structure of your face, proceed with caution. If a casting director is calling you because of your photo, you have a certain level of responsibility to show up to the audition looking lie it.
