What do you like about this subject?

Retouching is a full-time adventure for me. I use Adobe Photoshop almost every day of the year and enjoy working with photos quite a bit. I do not shoot. I only work on photos that are already made.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

To make clients and my students enjoy their photos and broaden their expectations of my abilities.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

EVERY photo you see published in a respectable format is retouched.

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

It can be used to great advantages and great mischief!
