Photo Editing: How much would you pay?
I'm not a pro, but I've noticed a lot of girls trying to edit the photos from their discs lately and it got me thinking.
Photo editing is a hobby of mine and I'm thinking about opening an etsy shop (or something) for photo retouching. I started getting interested in it 10 years ago back on Photoshop 5.5 so I could erase my friends and my acne and whiten our teeth LOL, but I have really been getting into it in the past 6 months since DH bought an SLR. I've been researching the best techniques and so on and how to alter the techniques I've been using to be more effective....
General editing to colour, shadow, contrast and so on would be least expensive.
Facial retouching would be an additional charge per photo, and you could choose which photos have it and which ones don't.
Full cosmetic retouching for things like bridal portraits or DIY b-pics would get the magazine cover type treatment with full body airbrushing, slimming, smoothing, etc. This is the most time intensive editing so it would cost the most.
If you could pay to have someone edit all your photos for you, how much (per pic) would you be willing to spend to make it worth handing over rather than doing yourself? Or, would you most likely edit most pics yourself and select a few for full cosmetic retouching, etc? Not just for wedding pics, but family pics and so on.
I'm just trying to figure out if this is a realistic thing people would actually use before I look into it more.
