OK, here's one that hangs in many offices and homes. Most black and white or if colored, rosy cheeks and red lips is all. I went a bit farther.
Very nice Banana. I did a lot of skin and feature work in my past life while either doing my own photography or helping out start up, with wishful thinking models who couldn't afford a pro editor to work on their non pro photos. Fun to do.
I primarily do it because I enjoy it and I have time on my hands. I still get a few request to do some colorization for a couple B?W drawers who don't color at all. Not too much else from the outside. I know, most that want work done do not want to pay much for it. that was OK with me. Restoration is time consuming but the end result is the big payout. It all was an added income before but now, just a hobby.Thanks fastpitch! I tried having a freelance business doing photo retouching (just part-time/for fun while earning something extra), couldn't get it off the ground since the photographers I met/work with were either too cheap to pay, too critical, or they consider themselves 'purist' as to not want to manipulate their photos in anyway, except for an auto leveling and a bit of color enhancement. Would love to do this on a part-time basis! I might not be as fast as I used to in terms of editing, but I'm sure it's like riding a bike, once you do a few pics, it'll all come back!
