Does anyone have interest in doing some photo retouching?

Hello everyone, I have worked with a lot of great photographers, and also some mediocre ones, like my 10 year old sister lol.

I am actually curious if anyone would be interested in doing some retouching or photo manipulation with any of my cosplay photos. I am not too great at photoshop or lightroom, and I have a lot of photos that just fall flat.

All of my photos can be found here:


You can message me with your email and I can send higher res versions of some of them.

I am looking for some cool manips or lighting techniques to turn some decent photos into something amazing.

Examples of what I really like in a photo:




Things either bright and standing out without being overly orange, and also a soft feel without things being too faded. I have no talent in this, please help me out?

If you would prefer a total photo manip with background changes and stuff, that would also be wonderful!

Hi Natsuo,

I think most of the "problems" is more in the initial capture stage which affects the colors and lighting shape along with it. As such, most of your photos won't look like the samples you link because the lighting and composition makes it too far from the desired look. As it is, I did a quick and dirty 5 minute edit on one sample that I thought might be possible. You may want to let the original photographer know about it and see if its okay with them. =)

Hello, Can you link me to one specific photo that I can test something out with first? I know this is a long shot but do you have any of the RAW files?

Your pictures are just fine. I'd be happy to do some retouching for you. Here's an example of my work.
Just send the original file to cflierl53@gmail.com and give an idea of what you want.
I'm looking forward to working with you.
