I have moved to Stockholm and started my first internship with retoucher Isabelle Alsén at Eightbit.
I have already been here for 7 weeks, time passes by too quickly! It feels amazing, I'm learning tons and I'm having so much fun in the process.
Issa is a wonderful teacher and now friend. She's taught me tips and tricks of the trade and we're currently working on optimizing workflow on a project with a very short deadline where perfect keying is essential.
These past 7 weeks we've worked on several projects, both personal and for clients. I've got my first real retouching job that I'll do myself while being mentored!
We've gone over the basics of beauty retouch, photo montages, advertising type retouch as well as the fundamentals of prepress, client expectation, communictaion and how to work as a freelance retoucher (economics etc).
