Trust in PPM Photography for all your image retouching needs in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.
We retouch, isolate, add clipping paths, recondition historic photographs and clean up problems with existing website images. All images have been retouched by PPM Photography at the Fitzroy Studio Melbourne.
Retouching is something that can make or break a photograph. Image retouchers in my mind have just as much to bring to a fantastic photographic image as the original photographer and in some cases more.
I personally worked in photography before the widespread acceptance and usage of digital photography by mainstream photographers and remember well the days spent developing film and printing negatives in hot darkrooms, rolling film from giant bulk containers into refillable cartridges for use in our cameras.
I recall these days with a certain fondness but the reality is that this was a scientific process that required patience and very specific character type.
These days it’s much more of an art form than a scientific process. The rise of digital retouchers has let us photographer’s concentrate on widening our view of photography and telling stories through our images, rather than with our hands in chemicals.
The example images below are a small selection I thought you’d find interesting. They show the wide variety of images the PPM retouching team deal with.
Fashion retouching, architectural retouching, portrait photography retouching, retouching of historical prints, wedding photography retouch, even nature photography sometimes needs a little retouch to look its best!
Thanks guys you do a very fine job for us behind the scenes!
