My name is John Ross and I am the owner of The Art of Retouching Studio. Our main goal is to bring a solid foundation in the training of Adobe Photoshop CS6. These Photoshop Tutorials about retouching will walk you through everything from starting as a beginner, and guide you through becoming a paid professional. Everything you need to learn, you can find it with The Art of Retouching Studio.
There are many professional image retouchers, professional retouching websites, and Photoshop tutorials that teach "beauty" and "glamour". Other websites may teach about "design" or other effects. The whites are blown out, the contrast is sharp, the colors are over saturated, and the overall images look very stylized.
The type of photo editing that we do here is not like that at all. We feel that we do our best work, when you can’t tell that we did anything at all. Our Photoshop techniques leave the details, and aim for better print reproduction. Our Photoshop Tutorials about retouching reflect this method of thinking.
Overall, our look is more natural, and that is what we are looking to teach. By backing away from the style, you’re left with something that looks realistic, and believable. Once you understand the fundamentals of image editing, you can then let your creative side free.
I have each been working in the photography, retouching, and graphic design field for over 20 years. Past clients have included agencies such as Arnold, Alcone, and BBDO.
I have done advertising and retouching for corporations such as Bose, Snuggle and Volkswagon. Previously, my retouching has been seen on the covers of major magazines such as Connecticut Bride, RoadBike, Bowdoin and Yale Alumni Magazine.
