About Laura

I've been working as a professional photo retoucher for years, and I love teaching and sharing my knowledge. I graduated from Cornell University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and a concentration in photography. I work in Los Angeles as a photographer and retoucher. I retouch headshots, portraits, family photos, graduation photos, etc.
You can learn how to manipulate color, tone, lighting, and shape in Photoshop, remove objects from photos, change backgrounds, composite two photos together and so on. I can also teach you beauty retouching so you can remove flaws from portraits, and so your subject looks rested and glowing. I have years of experience and can show you the right way to retouch. I believe in natural, realistic retouching and not making people look too processed or alien-like. I use Adobe Photoshop CS6 extended, but can adapt to other versions. I also use a Wacom tablet and highly recommend one.
