Hi all. My name is Aleksandr I am a retoucher.

Due to the war in Ukraine, I am out of work and at home and want to turn my hobby into a job, so as not to be tied to a place.

I want to make friends with active members (photographers) of the forum to communicate and discuss photos to quickly enter the profession retoucher. Fill up my portfolio from your photos and maybe someone has a job for me.

Add me as a friend.

Have a nice day, Aleksandr.

You might like to consider expanding your portfolio to include "before" and "after" photos so that photographers can get a clearer idea of what you can add to an image.

Hi Aleksandr,

I'm very sad for the situation you are in, and for what is happening in your country.  I wish the Ukranian people a speedy victory in this devastating war.


I do my own retouching. When I make a print, I have the lab's retoucher take a look at the file, just to have a second set of eyes. They end up cleaning a spot, or a bit of hair from the floor that I miss. Otherwise, the work is mine.

The only observation I have a this moment is that the the skin looks somewhat artificial.
Having skin and other surfaces looking natural and real is very important; at least to me.

Otherwise, the work looks pretty good.
