Photographer Hengki Lee features sharp silhouettes in his black and white photographs that, each in their own right, evoke a sense of stillness, adventure, and nostalgia. By playing with different settings as backdrops, the Indonesia-based photo enthusiast captures both the beauty of the environment and the silhouetted scene taking place in the foreground. The anonymity of these shadowy figures allows the spectator to create their own story and perhaps even draw a connection to their own lives.

Before computers, photo manipulation was achieved by retouching with ink, paint, double-exposure, piecing photos or negatives together in the darkroom. We’ve come along way in a short amount of time and things are only going to get better. Thanks to image editing software, photographers are able to adjust colors, contrast, white balance, sharpness, restoration, brightness, vividness, and much more. Without boring you to death with all the incredible features available, let’s discuss creative retouching.
From commercial to personal projects, photography retouching is an art form. While some spectators might think it’s a walk in the park, it’s not as easy as it looks. Most celebrities actually hire their own digital artists to professionally retouch their images before they’re released to the public. While critics may argue that mainstream media promotes false visual and physical appearance, people should already realize that almost every single image you see is heavily edited.
