My non-destructive retouching workflow consists of 

- Raw processing using Capture One, Adobe Lightroom or Adobe Camera Raw.

- Liquify, to adjust the distortions in terms of shapes and silhouettes.

- Cleanup of blemishes and imperfections in the image. 

- Dodge and burn on the skin and overall image to refine the lighting.

- Color correction and color grading to bring out the colors and match the desired moodboard of the shoot.


I’ve always been interested in art and literature and ardently wanted to be an artist so I pursued my dream of becoming a visual artist by enrolling in an art institute after finishing my high school from a small town in India. 

I was so anxious to get started with my career that I hustled and landed a job right after I turned 18 before finishing my course at the institute and got busy with the job. 

Meanwhile I took admission in a college degree with an English literature major, as I’ve always been fascinated with Victorian novels and stories. I wanted to understand English literature better. And as life went on I was doing well at the job but felt like there’s more to my career path than this. I was working in a retouching studio which specialized in retouching stock images so it was not a very creatively fulfilling job. I just felt this isn’t for me anymore and started going online, reading forums and learning from the internet. I eventually left the job and started my freelance retouching business in 2010 and since then I’ve never looked back.
