Anzhelika has always been very interested in fashion and beauty. Planning on becoming a photographer, she modelled only as a hobby. Retouching was originally just a way to make money until she could afford the camera she wanted but then quickly realised how much fun retouching is and what a knack she had for the trade.
She is self-taught, having spent hours watching online tutorials and practising what she had learnt by retouching her own images. She also purchased tutorial DVDs from various retouching professionals which further helped her hone her skills, teaching her more intricate techniques. She has only been retouching for six months but the standard of her work is years ahead of her actual experience. This is the result of hard work and a lot of practise; 12 hour days, six days a week.
She focuses on high-end retouching in beauty and fashion with her speciality being skin and keeping a natural look. She currently works with clients from all over the world, and loves working with a culturally diverse client base as it allows her meet a lot of new people who she says are all nice and also little crazy.
Anzhelika loved working on one of the PLUS27 editorials. She only wants to work and collaborate with professionals who know what they are doing and so far her collaboration with PLUS27 has been amazing. When retouching these images, she maintains a vision to create the best results possible. Every image she retouched has the potential to be published in high class magazines. The PLUS27 shots are her best work to date.
Anzhelika is a young and exceptionally talented re-toucher, her short career will most certainly blossom into a long and beautiful stint of perfecting retouched images and great work ethic.
