Default Retouching - Wanting some feedback, Can you help?

Hi there I have just joined OPF and really enjoyed reading some of your posts.

I have just begun to take my professional retouching into the freelance realm. Any feedback/advice you can offer me will be really valued as I am really passionate about retouching and want to produce the best retouching business possible.

Please take a look at my site www.saramoore.com.au

Hi, and welcome here....
I can see you like working on hair :)
to me your retouching is subtle, no extreme manipulation (just one liquify or two) and it's all right...Maybe you should include a more dramatic look or something a bit less "realistic" just to show customers what is possible...
I think your compositing with tags is very well done...
Just a thing: You got a typo on "services" (portraiture) and on "about" (Sare Moore)

Nice work!

Hi Sara,

I love you work! You have such patience working with hair. Defined and disciplined. What would you class your examples as, basic or advanced. Do you think of using "units" for complex or advanced work.

With units you can say next to each picture in your gallery, how many units it cost. Then folk buy units and use them on pictures. The more units they buy, the cheaper it is.

Asher
