I’ve been really into Fashion retouching lately, especially because I’m doing some intensive retouching lessons with Lynda.com by Chris Orwig – But let’s get back to retouching. About a month ago we reviewed Pascal Danging, the Master of retouching and owner of high end retouching studio The Box Studios, but there’s a lot of other Agencies / Studios who are doing some pretty amazing retouching work. HappyFinish is a London based agency which worked on the beautiful Diesel Camouflage and La Perla Campaigns as well as Esquire and Vogue magazines amongst others. Then there is Stella Digital, another great New York studio with brilliantly retouched images. Here are some of the Best Retouching Studios – Browse over these incredible retouching agencies, full of beautiful Portfolios and Before/After images (especially Real-Fake).
Fashion retouching has been changing a lot, and you start to see more and more realistic retouches, because now retouching is not about making you look slimmer or taller (even though some celebrities still ask for that), but about fixing just the little details, like the lighting, cleaning the skin or flyaway hairs, fixing the clothes, adding some makeup here and there, modifying the background or adding some interesting details. The plastic looking skin from the 90s is over and now its all about the pores and making the retouching as realistic as possible.
There is plenty of other retouching Agencies that we didn’t showcased, so you’re welcome to let us know by posting any links in the comment section below
