General Update & Editorial Shoot.

IMG_6645

So where to start….Well maybe with a small ‘sorry’ for those who were waiting for the new post, I know that I haven’t posted anything in  a month, but you cannot even imagine how much work I had going on! Some of it was Uni work and some of it was retouching…the rest was just typical stuff that needs to be done from time to time: backing up, organising Lightroom catalogues, social media, website updates and some idea/journal developments.

I’m going to start of with new milestones on 500px, we have reached 25,000 views as well as 325 Followers! We would have reached that a lot quicker but sadly I wasn’t posting any work on there for a good while.

Another Publish!

My last post was about the collaboration with ‘Stéfan Bourson’, French photographer who gave me a chance to work with him. I’ve retouched a series of photos and about 2 weeks after I’ve sent them back, he came back to me with some awesome news!

As you can see the image did get published in a magazine called ‘Fashionista’ (Photographer: Stéfan Bourson’, Retoucher: Darek Szwedo)

I’m very proud of that because this time its a proper fashion/beauty image, not just photoshop composite. However the good news doesn’t stop there, few days ago I’ve been contacted by the model:  Sophia Modele (FB Page: https://www.facebook.com/sophia.modele) and asked to work on some work with her, which is also to be published! So stay tuned for that, in fact I may be doing a video tutorial where I would go through few tips and tricks when it comes to retouching!

Collaboration with French Photographer ‘Stéfan Bourson’

web

Don’t worry I still shoot! As a matter of fact I have a shoot next week with 2 beautiful models and a long term relationship makeup artist ‘Nicola Scally’. But this is not what I will be talking about today. What I will be talking about is the recent collaboration with a French artist  named Stéfan Bourson who is fantastic at fashion and glamour photographer. I personally had a great pleasure to retouch some images for him and develop better relationship, so I can guarantee that you will be seeing more work collaboration !

Make sure to read more!

So what is Darek currently working on? Well since its 4 days before I go on holiday, I simply won’t have the time to do another commercial/advertising shot so I decided to start working on something a bit more personal. Over the past few weeks I’ve been having random dreams where I would see….Triangles….Thats right, triangles , I don’t know what and I do know that this is totally random but ohh well :D

A4-Poster-1

Hi everyone! I’m hoping that you all had great weekend! I surly did. As some of you may know, my most recent image ‘Russian standard’ was published on the SLR Lounge.com, where I have been asked to do an article on. I must say, I was very surprised and happy at the same time, I had a lot of positive feedback which is always nice. Just in 3 days I will be reviewing my next publish but this time I’m even more exited because its a press publish :D I did talk about it few weeks ago. It will be in ‘Advanced Photoshop’ magazine so make sure to get it and check out some great work!
