Q: What is your retouching style?
We are fans of natural and realistic looking images. In our retouching we only use non-destructive techniques, we don’t ever blur skin and always make sure the skin texture is present after retouching. All our work is manual, we don’t use any plugins or shortcuts, everything is manual work to make sure the quality is not lost during any of the post prodcution stages.

Q: How long does the retouching take / When will my files be ready?
Again, it depends on the project. Each photo is different and each project is different. It also depends on how many photos are in the project, how much work is needed on each photo, how busy we are in that period. Get in touch today and we will talk about it in more detail.
