March 21, 2019 @ 3:00 am - 12:00 pm CDT
Master the Art of Professional Portrait Retouching
Portrait Retouching is often one of the the most daunting tasks for photographers to undertake and master. While it is critically important to capture the right image in camera, the alchemy of professional imagery is most often achieved through disciplined post-processing of the image.
Professional Retouching takes many different approaches and steps to transform a picture into a portrait. We’re going to experience to how to make your images look awesome and not “Photoshopped!” In fact, we’re not going to use Adobe Photoshop for any of the retouching techniques in this course.
In this workshop, you’ll learn the following:
- Retouching faces for portrait photography
- Removing distractions from your scene
- Replacing the background or sky to transform the image
- Retouching the body for fashion photography
- Retouching wardrobe to fulfill the vision
- and so much more.
In each chapter of this workshop, we’re going to focus on the “why” and “how” of retouching. Additionally, this workshop places an emphasis on both “taste” and “style” in retouching. We’ll also explore how to blend the two for different clients.
