Retouching: M is for Marked for Death

Photography is mainly a hobby for me and it doesn’t happen very often that I have to retouch pictures for someone else than myself. But two weeks ago, I was testing on set color grading (much more on that coming soon!) on the shoot of the independent short film M is for Marked for Death shot by director of photography and friend Jean-Philippe Bernier. He took promotional pictures at the end of the last day and asked me to retouch them the same way I graded the film on the set.

Here’s how it turned out :

Stay tuned for a detailed post on the workflow used to grade the film from the set to the grading room!
