I’m sure this will cause a bit of stir in the photography community, but retouching images is my kind of art creating something original.

This is the first of hopefully many retouching and photography tutorials that I will be doing over the next months. This tutorial is about wet plate collodion images which I’ve been trying to find a way to emulate in post production. I really like the look and feel of these kind of images.

For me, the basic photograph is the starting point and I try to capture people as they are. Then I go ahead and try to create something more, and for this series I have tried to capture a bit more of that old feel to the images.
