What software do I use?
I know many programs and I use them as required. I mostly work in Lightroom (color correction) and Photoshop (skin retouching).
What are the prices?
It all depends on the client's wishes and complexity of the work. To determine the price and terms in your case, send 5 original photos (RAW) in any way convenient for you. Then describe what exactly I need to do with the photos. For the sake of convenience, I'll send you the simple TOR. This doesn't bind you to anything, however, it can give me a clear understanding of your wishes concerning the processing of the photos.
How to pay for the work?
All types of online payment are available. More detailed information is discussed individually.
How to send and get the pictures?
You can send or receive photos using any convenient file sharing service. For example Google Drive, Dropbox, etc.
What is TOR?
TOR is terms of reference for a retoucher. I.e. the most detailed description of tasks + reference (examples). You can describe in detail all your wishes concerning the processing and correction of each problem (in your opinion) area.

To avoid misunderstandings and further complaints, the TOR is developed in writing. Examples would be desirable. The TOR and your photos can be sent via personal messages on social media or as e-mail attachments. I will access the price, ask questions if necessary and tell you the price. Sometimes, if there's no clear TOR, my client and I can develop it together. We'll consult about what type of retouch or stylization would be suitable for one photo or the other.

Can I make corrections to the processed pictures?
If following the results of retouch, you found some minor faults, I'll fix it. It happens, different tastes and all. It's no problem. Nevertheless, if you constantly add something new to be corrected, picking on weird and insignificant things, then be ready to pay for these corrections. Especially if everything is done according to the TOR, but after the processing, you suddenly wished to fundamentally change something. As a result, I'll have to take half of the retouch to pieces with the change of makeup and hairstyle.

I might deny correction if the work is done, but you ask me to make changes, which will ruin your photo.
