Mouse for before/After. This was more of a screw up. An older portrait, the client came back and wanted a wall portrait made. I had neglected to remove the crud from the dock and it was now adding to the scene. I did a lot of detailed retouching to remove the crud and make the image shine for it's 30 inch canvas... Gav

A few thoughts from Gavin…
Cloning, healing, patching, retouching. Whatever you call it, is about removing or refining elements in an image. All this came long before digital, when master retouchers used airbrushes and dye’s to achieve the same effect. 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 as understand your tools. Put simply, the Cloning Magic series will teach you to edit better and know when and where and how to use your tools.

Sometimes you want an image that’s all natural. But other times you need to make changes. At those times perfect retouching is critical to a professional quality photo. There’s little more amateurish than an image fix that everyone can see took place. I’m going to show you the tools a tricks to get your pixels perfect and make image that are clean and polished.

From healing sensor spots to taking out people while restoring an old print. We’ll start with basic tools and what you can accomplish in LR, then move quickly to advanced cloning techniques in PS. In under 2 hours of video training sessions, you’ll learn what tools to use and when, how to visualize and plan your edits to avoid ugly messes and redundancies in your images and how make your alterations look like they never happened.

Mouse for before/After. I could not move the clutter in the field and time was fleeting. In post I thought of leaving it, but then thought how much cleaner it could be and what a good exercise in challenging clones it would preset... Gav
