For this live photography talk show, Karl is joined by professional retoucher Viktor Fejes. Viktor, who presents our Advanced Photoshop for Photographers course with Karl, has an international clientele and knows how to produce top results quickly.
Viktor joined Karl to discuss all things relating to retouching, from image storage to practising and promoting your work. He also fielded many of the tougher questions relating to the industry, including the impact retouching has on body perception, the ethics relating to retouching, what impact CGI is having on the photographic industry and why you shouldn’t use frequency separation.
For those more interested in the technical side of retouching, Viktor also shared some useful retouching advice, his choice of rendering software and explained how he handles data storage and project workflow.
