Before & After Photo Retouching
Viewing before-and-after images is always fun for us creative, visual types. So when I heard from Art Director/Photo Retoucher Anna Scetinina recently I immediately checked out her Website. Plus she sent such a nice, professional, just-right email note.
Anna wrote: “I am a professional Photo Retoucher and Art Director with over 10 years of experience in editorial, fashion retail and advertising fields. I have recently updated my online portfolio and invite you to check out my new web site at www.annascetinina.com and see the most recent samples of my retouching work.
“I am interested in collaboration with a production company on a constant basis, please let me know if Cox Productions might be interested in my creative talent. Thank you very much for your time.”
Her site states, “Anna Scetinina is a Toronto based creative professional with over 10 years of domestic and international experience in retouching, art direction and creative strategic execution. She started her career in Eastern Europe where she used to work as editorial Art Director. For past several years she has been in fashion retail industry providing artistic direction and professional photo retouching services for Canadian fashion retailers.
“Anna’s got great experience performing Art Direction for magazine covers and various advertising photo shoots from idea and creating of mood boards to detailed on set direction and post production guidance. Her strong retouching skills are built on her artistic background (MFA, MA in Art History), understanding of human anatomy, exceptional technical skills as well as passion to photography and sense of style. Anna is currently in the middle of a Professional Photography course which helps her to continuously perfect her professional artistic qualifications.”
I hope you enjoy comparing these unretouched and retouched images as much as I have.
