I have dreamed for years, fighting with all the small inevitable defects of photographs with the possibility of being able to fix little things "in person". And it finally became reality.
I work on Photoshop image retouching since 1994, Photoshop 2.5 it was. Clear ideas about "how to" were already there, skills and sensitivity also. I was just waiting for the tools.
My retouching work is mostly related to fixing defects or recreating what is not available yet, that's why you won't find any "Franzetta-like" images here. I think creating an image that is perfectly plausible is way more difficult than making those falke "dungeon & dragon atmospheres".
But when you need something looking absolutely "real":
that's my job.
