A few thoughts from Gavin:
All this came long before digital, when master retouchers used airbrushes and dyes to achieve the perfect image. I’ve seen it done and it’s amazing. But digital gives us to the ability to retouch faster and better than ever. As long we understand our tools. Put simply, the Retouching Magic series will teach you to edit better. To know when, where and how to use the tools that are sitting right in front of you.

Sometimes you want an image that’s all natural. Other times you need bold changes. Perfect retouching is often critical to that professional image and there’s little more amateurish than a bad retouch where everyone can see what happened. I’m going to show you the tools a tricks to get your pixels perfect and make images that are clean and polished.

We’ll start with basic tools and and build a solid foundation as we do in all Seim workshops – When we’ll move quickly to advanced techniques. In a few hours you’ll learn what tools to use and when. You’ll learn how to visualize and plan your edits to avoid ugly messes and how make your retouching look like it never happened. Retouching Magic will change how you make images.

I'm Gavin Seim. I'm a Shadow Hunter

I started photography in 1997 at age 12. I'm a PPA Master, Hot One and Loan Collection winner and Lightroom expert. My images, tools and workshops have been featured in books and throughout the industry.

I was born in WA USA. I started working pro (using that word loosely as I sucked) using film at age 16. It was not easy to find training then and often I beat my head against the wall to win. 20+ years in the trenches earned me my Masters (M.Photog) from PPA but it taught me that's just the start.

I moved to Mexico in 2017, exploring the magical light of the South, creating tools and workshops as well as the Pro Photo Podcast. There's lots of videos and free things here. If you have questions I'm here to help

You're rightly skeptical of photography tools in today's market. That's why all sales are NOT FINAL here. I guarantee each tool and workshop with my 31 day No-Regrets Guarantee! --
