New developements

As a retoucher I’m very sensitive to the different needs my clients have when commissioning work, all the way from the strict standards of Wildlife Photographer of the Year to the “anything goes” fantasy composite.

As a result of many years retouching I have developed a very keen sense of when images have been manipulated.

With the advent of Ultra High Definition video it looks like we are in for an interesting time where the tools and techniques of still and moving images start to merge.

I don’t mind the girls spots myself, but the techniques used are scarily good (be sure to play this in HD full screen for the best effect):

High quality noise reduction in HDTV footage

Im looking at developing a workflow for rescuing unique footage filmed in HDTV that has a significant noise problem.

The reason I say unique is because the noise reduction process will be off line and so wont be in plug in form for a long time (and hence not very convinient!).

Im looking for an uncompressed frame sequence export in tiff format (perhaps enough frames to fill a DVD in the first instance).
If anyone has such problematic footage and they fancy having a bit of fun trying the thing out then please get in touch, if it works you can keep the smoothed but still sharp footage, if it doesnt work then at least we tried!
