Are you looking for a studio portrait? I am completely mobile. I can work at home or on location. Hey and you can always do a combination of studio and location work. I do prefer to photograph outside but indoor studio portraits is a great option in the colder months. This image was toned with the matte look and gradient map to give it that color graded effect. The lights used in this image were simple, just a hair light and beauty dish. It was taken with a shallow depth of field so it would quickly fall out of focus. Feel free to take a look at my other portraits on contact me for more information. Hey don’t forget about photos when it is snowing. It is a great time for portraits.

Stop using those phone apps to retouch your selfies. I can use high-frequency retouching in Adobe Photoshop to retouch your portraits. High-frequency retouching separates the color layer from the detail layer in Photoshop. This allow me to to fix blemishes, skin color and shadows without removing detail. This will give you a more natural look than just blurring your face. I can contour you face, shape your eyes, nose, mouth, head and body. Need thicker eyelashes, no problem I can add them too. Retouching is totally free and painless for all portraits I take.
If you would like to see the process, I have a YouTube tutorial I made for this image. The description has time stamps so you can skip to any part of the video you would like to watch.

New Content-Aware Fill-Adobe Photoshop 2019
I test out how well the new content-aware tool works in the new Adobe Photoshop CC 2019. Overall it is much faster however, the quality is about the same or just a bit better in my opinion. It still leaves an out of focus area where the fill occurred in the image. This is most only visible if you have a detail or textured area that is in focus. You are still going to have to do some clean-up on most images. I will need to use the tool more before I can really see the difference. You can still use the old content-aware fill, so I will be testing it more in the furture.
