I have approxiamtely Thirty (30) hi-rez Tif files of Amber Smith that need retouching. I am on a limited budget as well as major time-restraints.
The type of retouching I am looking for is the type 'you can't see..' so to speak. The personality looks great and refreshed yet I want all character kept in the image.
I don't like over-retouched images (blurred-out skin, or brightly colored eyes) yet I may need, for example, the breasts to be enhanced in certain images and not just by contouring but by cut and paste, free-transform and then merging it back into the image in a seamless manner.
The TIF files will be uploaded to my server as well as a text file for each picture. The text file will simply say the top three things that is needed to be retouched in that particular image as well as the general retouching for all files.
These photos do need to be prepped for print - they will need to be saved in the native TIF file format and color-corrected accordingly.
I would like to have all 30 images done in the next 10 days if not sooner. As each image is done, say nightly, it will be FTP-ed back up to a folder at my site for retrieval.
There may be some files that are rather sexy.. some photos are topless.
I will NEED to see some samples of work that you have done with retouching and if you have glamour or beauty samples, that's even better. This obviously is very important, mandatory.
I will also show you some samples of the type of retouching I prefer. This project must be able to started immediately at the end of the bidding.
I have had many requests for samples files so that the retouching skills can be shown. I have uploaded the a few large JPG versions of actual files that will be in the 30 needed for this project.
Also, for your FYI on the retouching needed or better see the following:
*Here is a file from this batch that just landed on a cover http://www.ambersmith.com/test/PanoramaCover.jpg
*Here is the version of the same file UNRETOUCHED. The file was shot in two parts to make a poster-size print, I just uploaded the top half: http://www.ambersmith.com/test/Panorama_Unretouched.jpg
*Here is the RETOUCHED FILE I did that was submitted to the magazine): http://www.ambersmith.com/test/Panorama_Retouched.jpg
If you have a portfolio that aptly shows your glamour retouching - great. I will start reviewing tomorrow, but if you want to grab a picture, please feel free! Just PM me so I can make sure to take a look.
I have a lot of jobs coming up with the opening of my new site at Christmas so I am keeping my eyes wide open for a whole new team. This is a great job to start on. Best, Amber
