If you are not familiar with the Creative Live webinars - they bring top people in photography and Photoshop skills to their Seattle studio and stream the 2 to 3 day webinars live all over the world. During the event you can purchase a copy of the webinar for a reduced price (usually $99 which rises to $149 once the event is over) so that if you loved the webinar and want re-watch to get all the details down pat, you can. If you can't afford it, you can simply sit back in front of your computer (with high-speed connection preferred) and watch / learn; the seminars run from about 9am PDT to 4pm PDT (with lunch and other breaks) and then start replaying so you can catch parts you missed during the day. There's a USTREAM app for iPod/iPhone/iPad also - I like to watch the reruns at night via my Apple TV on my TV.
During August - there will be at least two webinars that relate to folks here:
Lee Varis will take you beginning to end through multiple shoots with different types of people covering how to pose and light them well, and will then cover in-depth how to post-process in Lightroom and Photoshop. You'll learn how to fix blemishes, smooth out wrinkles, and address other skin concerns so you can make your clients look their best. http://www.creativelive.com/courses/...hing-lee-varis
