Fit & Flexibility

As a Retoucher, I have worked for a variety of firms, including ad agencies, pre-press firms, catalogs and publishing companies both on-site and at my home studio. My strengths include creative compositing, harmonizing lighting, color and perspective, special effects, and beauty and fashion. Please view my online portfolio for work samples at http://www.davidkliger.com. Below is a listing of both my retouching specialties as well as clients I have served.

I really enjoy the photo-illustration and story-telling essence of harmonizing disparate elements into a unifying whole.

Whether it’s color-matching a translucent fragrance, harmonizing skin tone or a sunset, I offer sensitive, color-accuracy for any situation.
