Hello, I live in Paris and Los Angeles I work in the movie business as a producer/actor, but I'm passionate crazy about photos. It all started 12 years ago when I was on holidays and a designer showed me what you could do with Photoshop to enhance photos, I immediately bought the Canon 350D and did a lot of training to learn photography and retouching.
I had Canon cameras for year and now I play around with the Sony A7r and A7s.
I worked on a project for the last 10 years called "Paris Cinéma", the idea was to take beautiful moments of lights in Paris to give them a movie look. Some of the photos are heavily retouched, some are not at all. All that matters to me is the emotional impact.
Lately I started doing portraits compositing. Meaning taking a person on a neutral background and mix that up with a nice background.
If you want to know more about my retouching techniques, you can check out my Iphone/Ipad apps on using Lightroom and Photoshop at : www.photoserge.com
I hope you like what I do if you have any technical questions do not hesite to ask. I still have a lot to learn and share !
