Re: Should I trust this video???

Good find, even if you can get a few good tips from it, then it will be worth the money, unless it's just a hobby. Also the quality 39mp Hassy files definitely makes it nice to work with.

I really wish he had some versions like the first few photos in his beauty portfolio "Stefanie & Jennifer", I love how the D&B is applied. The top 3 in the video are pretty shadow'y and dark, but at least the last two are a lot brighter.

pretty cool stuff

I'm going to order one on the 28th I think...unless it's a big flop but from the previews and his before after pic's it looks pretty good.

Why not ask that dude/those dudes for verifiable references and third-party reviews?

Okay...I wrote him a note and got this response...who knows...he may be a member on this site...

Thank you for your email. There are no reviews as of yet as the video hasn't
shipped yet, orders will start shipping on the 28th. I cover the entire skin
retouching process, watching the video you will learn all the techniques needed
to produce results as shown in the samples section of the website. I would say
the level of instruction is from beginner through advanced.

I am working on more videos focusing on specific scenarios retouchers face,
lighting, photography, etc. The first video is the only one specifically
dedicated to retouching.

I use the Canon 5D and the Hasselblad H3D-39 cameras, all included files except
for one are from the H3D-39.

I would think retouching a photo form a Hasselbalad would not provide the same results as retouching a 10 mpix photo.

Well I just ordered a copy...can't wait to watch it.

Looks better than any books go into as far as beauty retouching. I just wish he worked on all 5 of the files, but with only 3 hrs and behind the scenes shoot footage I don't see how it could include all 5....I emailed him but am assuming it's just the White background pic

I.o.w. no independant third-party opinions.
I wouldn't spend 150 bucks on a plain gamble.
But if you do, I've got a great piece of real-estate with your name on it waiting for you. Value: 300,000. Your price: 3,000. Just send me a note...

Since when is purchasing something new with the intent of discovery and education the same as gullible real estate investing? Also, when should someone purchase something...anything?

Or are you advocating something else?

I don't even remotely see the broad, sweeping generalization world view where investing $150 in a tutorial DVD is the same as $3,000 for a $300,000 piece of real estate. Unless, if for you $100 is the same as $3,000.

And quite frankly...your insinuation is disturbing. What you are not so subtly implying here is that anyone who takes a well thought out risk, on a $150 education dvd...is the same as a shorted sighted, naive fool who easily falls for real estate scams.

Quite a healthy view on our world and the people in it.

Re: Should I trust this video???

i was also looking at this DVD, but I think the information on the site is not sufficient. I understand that the author does not want to give away any tips for free, but how does one know that the quality of work he produces will actually be discussed in the DVD? The photoshoot clip is fun, though.

Also, are the techniques discussed good for print quality?

Any way, whoever tests the DVD must ask for comission on all the potential sales
