The second day of spring...

I drove around this last Saturday to check out locations in the downtown Milwaukee area, to use for high school Senior portraits this summer. Of course, it was also an opportunity to do some things I thought about doing for some time. This image was not on my agenda. It was on my way home on a seasonally pleasant day when I was passing Bradford Beach and decided to stop for a 'look see'. I took a variety of images... this was my favorite after finishing it in Photoshop®. I believe Man Ray said he never knew what he was doing untill he was done. That was one of those days for me.

Photoshop® services - retouching and image enhancement...

Click on image to see an enlarged view...

I offer my services for Photoshop® work done on images after they have been captured correctly in a digital camera. I have been educated in photography and have continued with workshops both in photography, digital imaging and Photoshop®. I am a member of NAPP (the National Association of Photoshop® Professionals) which offers continuing education with Photoshop® techniques and practices.

This service is offered to consumers and professional photographers who own the copyright to their images. If you do not own the copyright, I will need a copyright release from your photographer (this is between myself and your photographer - and not a "says it's OK), giving me permission to work on your images. Pricing is by quotation after I have reviewed your images and have an understanding of the work you require.

Basic retouching for portraits includes exposure and contrast adjustment, colour neutralizing and simple blemish removal - $25.00 each image. Services for scenic and art images also includes exposure and contrast adjustment, colour neutralizing and conversions such as black and white, toning and edge effects - range from $25.00 and up.
