by Jeff Lazell – June 23rd, 2014


There are a lot of post production challenges facing photographer’s today. Of course, one of those is color management, but another challenge is retouching. Creating a beautiful high-end finished photo requires the right tools and techniques and time. It is that last bit that causes photographers a lot of frustration when building their work flow.

So, this week on CreativeLive join international retoucher Pratik Naik, owner of Solstice Retouch, as he shares his secrets for creating beautiful photos in less time. You will also learn the business and marketing side of retouching, everything from working with clients to creative branding opportunities.

During a live photo shoot, Pratik will work with photographer Felix Kunze, demonstrating how photographers and retouchers can work together to craft a final product that exceeds the expectations of both parties. You’ll learn every single step of the retouching process by watching as Pratik turns Felix’s raw photos into high-quality images. Including our favorite step, color management.

Whether you’re a photographer who wants to present high-end final images to your clients, or you want to break into the world of retouching, Pratik will be able to provide you with the skills necessary to be the best at your craft and like all classes on CreativeLive this one is being broadcast free of charge.
