The PhotoPlus Expo is coming up again! You might have heard me talk about speaking there last year. Well, I’m doing it again with a hands-on glamour & fashion retouching course. The course/workshop runs on October 25th, 2012 at 8:45AM – 10:45AM, titled Glamour & Fashion Retouching. Get more info at the pdn PhotoPlus website.
I will be demonstrating high-end, professional beauty retouching in a few situations. Main points will be enhancing eyes, working up lips, masking and color correction and how/when to add texture.
If nothing else, come check out the PhotoPlus Conference + Expo running October 24-27 at the Jacob Javits Center here in New York City and is the largest photography even in the US. Surely you’ll find something useful, helpful or inspiring.

Yes, that’s right. Teaching all summer hasn’t slowed me down. I’ll be teaching two classes this fall at SVA and would love to see you there.
Sept. 22 – 23, 10am – 5pm
The artistic and business aspects of professional beauty retouching will be addressed in this course. We will cover retouching techniques that include maintaining skin texture, enhancing make-up and improving body contours that are used to make the beautiful look perfect. Additionally, the course will address working with clients, negotiating “redos” and submitting final files.

Creating an advertising image begins with multiple retouching decisions, and ends with a single image ready for publication. In this course, we will review this process using basic retouching skills as well as new techniques. Students will compose multiple image files, perform beauty retouches, create a convincing silhouette,add various effects and properly match product colors. The end result will be a client-ready deliverable file.
