There’s no photo magic here, it just looks like it
OMS believes in taking on a visual challenge and rising to the occasion. A great photo gets us 90% of the way to the desired product. Digital retouching pushes us to 100%. There is an undeniable “wow” factor here, but our joy comes from sharing the process with others.I need some retouching magic
Pulling Back The Curtain On A Retouching Team
It’s easy to find photo retouching a little mysterious. Most folks are unsure of the time it will take or how to translate a vague idea into a precise design. Our dedicated digital team will help overcome these hurdles.
Improving Design Communication
With an in-house team, retouchers are free to communicate with photographers and clients alike. Before and during shoots, retouchers hear the client’s vision firsthand, discuss the edits needed with the photographer, and often work on initial proofs and mockups while clients are still on set.
After the shoot, the communication continues. OMS uses a simple and unpretentious proofing program so clients can easily request changes as the process moves along. We’ll go through multiple rounds of revisions until everyone is satisfied. You’ll learn what goes into the ideas and processes. The more transparently involved everyone is, the better the end result.
Shooting with next steps in mind
When a photographer knows what’s possible and trusts the retoucher’s ability, the shoot is executed differently. Instead of smoothing out every imperfection on a piece of chocolate, the photographer can focus on elements such as composition, lighting, and client engagement. This continually allows our photographers to be confident, yet relaxed on set.
When a concept pushes the bounds of creativity and logistics, it often requires the use of photo composites. Indeed, complex images can’t have every model, prop, and set arranged to happen at the same time while still having the perfect lighting. However, our retouching team and photographers can work together to make every aspect come together in one polished product.
