Its May -DVD Update time

Posted 05-06-2008 at 11:12 PM by cricket1961

Well May is here, and I had said that I was aiming to have my DVD done by May.

Its not.

I have been so swamped with Retouching and Alpha/Beta work for Adobe that I have barely enough time to see my 3 sons at eh end of the day.

But it is in the works and has not been forgotten about. Most of the content has been meshed out. I have consents from many hi-end Models to use their shots for this. Now it is just a matter of picking which images will be used and for which circumstances.

While I don't do ALL of my retouching with the softlight technique, it is at least 85% of it. Which is not to say that I can't retouch with other techniques.

They will be shown, hopefully a few different ways to use softlight/d&b, even some blurring techniques that CAN actually work given a good enough resolution file. And have been used by me.

There will of course be other content but it is not yet known how much or what.

All images will have been shot from a Canon 1ds Mark II and will be available to practice on only.
I will let you know when, in the meantime there seems to be a worth while e-book making the rounds by grygarness that seems to be doing ok with some members. You might want to check it out.

    hard to believe it is May, time does indeed fly at times..sounds like the dvd will have plenty of intermediate and advanced techniques being shown, which will be nice to see...
