already saw that, and again I'll state if you're looking for problem skin solutions this isn't your video. You can still see in the g9 shot the model has near perfect skin to start with.

I agree with mrbeagle. The g9 is okay, but the skin doesn't compare to the shot with the Hasselblad - the textures is significantly better. And I also said correct lighting is essential. I have a much better appreciation of the high end retouched picture...it is the total package...

Re: Should I trust this video???

Now I saw almost the complete DVD I just don't know why some think this DVD sucks??

I think this is a great DVD with Excellent Information. yes there is not really much on skin, but well how to shape the head with dodge and burn. i didn't buy this DVD for only skin, and yes I'm familiar with Photoshop because i use it every day so i didn't need that part of retouching tools, but for beginners is it just great because if you don't see those videos you just don know where to start. Vitaly explains almost everything very good. i only think this DVD is more for beginners than for semi~Pro's. when i have to give this video a star rating i would give it **** for beginners/familiar types with photoshop. i would give it five stars when the price would be lower.. because 200 dollar for a DVD? way to much. I should ask 100 for it. But now about those Photo's that were included.

I don't have the worths for it.. they are amazing detailed! well what can you expect from a 39 mp camera. also if you open the PSD files you wont see much layers that is because he does almost all the work on one layer. but you see the layer of the shaping shadows.

i think it also would be nice if you could download it from the website for money off course. because I life in the Netherlands it is a big bill to ship it to here. i had to pay 40 euro for tax!!

( I'm not good in giving reviews)

Ruud,

Looking back I never read where anyone said this video sucked. The only disappointment I read was that it didn't cover as much "skin" retouching as hoped...but then again who needs to retouch skin when you're shooting with a 39 mp camera. I believe everyone agrees with your assessment...four star...some good stuff...great for a beginner...and over priced...around $100 would be a better value.
