About the Q&A Session: This meet up is an informal chat with Mr. Ross where you get a chance to listen to inside stories, photo editing hints and tips and real world accounts of what it's like to be a working professional photo retoucher.
Mr. Ross will explain the difference between simple photo edits and a complete makeover from a professional. He will explain the pros and cons of hiring an retoucher and is open to answering questions about what it takes to manipulate digital images, from software to how to approach a project to dealing with customers.
If you are a photographer and are unsure of how to edit your images to make them stand out, this is your opportunity to learn. If you understand your limitations but want to take your photos to the next level, this is the chance to find out what it takes.
