Finishing and Retouching Standards

We inform you ahead of time with tips on wardrobe and what to expect during your photoshoot. However, many factors can add to a need to finish your image, such as wind, glare, too many bright colors or contrasting colors, and more. At Ginici Studios we process every image, which means all your final portraits will be fully finished. Besides all the expertise behind the creation of your portrait, a finished portrait will give it the professional appearance you want. Our finishing standards include:

  • color correction
  • color balance and vibrance
  • sharpening
  • color enhancements and/or vignetting
  • framing and cropping if necessary

Your final images are delivered fully finished and lightly retouched. This is what turns a good portrait into an "Editorial Ready" portrait. Ginici Studios retouching standards include:

  • flyaway hairs
  • uneven hair edge-line or holes
  • fine lines around the eyes and on the face
  • uneven or odd shadows and highlights on the face
  • brightening of the eyes and teeth
  • evening out lipstick and brows if needed and smoothing the skin overall
  • evening out skin tone due to excessive redness, or tan lines (on the face only)
  • removing distracting people or obstacles in the background (if at the beach, people removed but surfers stay)

Please contact us if you see anything in your portrait you would like touched-up that is not on this list.

Additional retouching and/or graphic effects will be an additional charge but it is totally worth it to get it right exactly how you want it.

Additional Retouching Requests:

If there are things in your portraits you would like revised or removed let us know. We are highly experienced with photo editing software. Just keep in mind that additional retouching will be charged accordingly for time and labor.
