While building complex composite images is a fun challenge I also enjoy working on wide range of images including Lifestyle images such as this one shot by Chris Crisman. This shot was part of a series Chris did for Field and Stream. In working on this image I paid close attention to Chris’ style and worked to bring out the right amount of detail in the old man and deer trophy on the wall.
Part of the challenge retouchers face is knowing what we leave is as important as what we take out. In this case the spider web by the table and the dirt on the floor were left to help add to the rustic feel of the location.
