SKIN RETOUCHING IN 2MINUTES?

 

So what do you think is the most challenging part of retouching? It’s the time involved in it. You can’t always spend hours on an Image. Steps are easy but it becomes annoying when you have to do it for 25images or even more. And if your client is not paying you separately for your retouching works its ridiculous spending that much amount of time on an image.

So here we have our Magic Layers to deal with it. Obviously, you can’t expect results like you can have with D&B or FS but it won’t let anyone down. An easy cheesy workflow to achieve beautiful and professional looking images all the time.

ABOUT THE MENTOR

Sourav is a Bangalore based Fashion Photographer and Retoucher. It all started 6 years ago when he felt the need to find an outlet to translate his pains, dreams, and imagination. And then, photography happened to him. For him, it has always been about capturing something better and beautiful than reality. Romance, love, desolation, sensitivity and pain are what drives him for photography. His images are just like his dreams. And just like his dreams, he only shares what touches him.

In addition to his passion towards photography, Sourav is also the founder of GlamFlame and a Software Engineer by degree. He also works as a professional digital marketer for a couple of leading restaurants and production houses in India.
