In these videos I show how I worked with a specific photo. I don't teach retouch in general. When you buy a retouch video you also get the raw file and the Photoshop file with all layers so you can study the adjustments closer. The videos is about 40-50 minutes. My workflow is faster if I do it on my own without explanations. When you learn this way you can also speed up your own retouch.

This photo is from an afternoon shoot on a beach in Bali, Indonesia. No reflectors or light modifiers was used, just camera and lens. In this tutorial I also give you the secret for this golden skin and I explain about the light conditions.

 Equipment used: Nikon D810 with Nikkor 85/1,4G.



Julia Yaroshenko in purple

Shot in available light early in the morning on the beach in Goa, India. No reflectors or light modifiers was used, just camera and lens. I'll explain more about the light and how to get this "glow" in the video.

Equipment used: Nikon D810 with Nikkor 58/1,4G.



Portrait of Julia Yaroshenko

Another shot of the beautiful Julia. This was done on the middle of the day with clear blue sky and strong sun. In this video I explain how I usually work in these conditions to achieve this kind of look. There's also some advanced color grading tips and ways to achieve great skin tones. I selected this photo because it shows this very well.

Equipment used: Nikon D810 with Nikkor 58/1,4G.



Olga Kobzar indoor with window light

After some requests for indoor photo with window light I decided to do a video of this photo. It was shot about 1,5 years ago. It's done indoor on one of my workshops  without any reflector or flash. The technique is different from the newer ones since I always update my workflow. Basically it's done without any adjustments in Capture One so it can be very interesting for people using camera raw or Lightroom. Only adjustment done before Photoshop is white balance.

Equipment used: Canon 5dsR and Canon 35/1,4L II.



Julia Zu in avalable light outdoors

This image was shot in available light on a cloudy day. Very soft light and no reflectors or flash was used. This is a natural looking fashion style retouch with warm tones. Perfect when there's a lot of skin in the picture.

Equipment used: Canon 5d mkIII and Canon 85/1,2L II.

Olga kaminska in the studio

Here's one in black & white. A couple of years ago this was my main look. If you have check my portfolio closer or followed me for some time you know all about this look. Around the time when I made this photo is when it all started. 

Equipment used: Canon 5d3 with Canon 24-70/2,8L II. Profoto D1 flash with 150cm octa.

Actions and presets


Photoshop action

This is an action for Photoshop that I call "Summer gold" and it's based on this image. It will give you my typical golden skin that you can usually see in my outdoor natural light photos.

The action works well on a variety of photos and the settings can easily be tweaked to achieve perfect results on every photo. You get best results when using a neutral, low contrast photo from the raw converter of your choice. I have tested with camera raw, Lightroom and Capture One with great results! Additional instructions are included in the package.
