I think that would be an very good idea Chris T.

I have seen your work, and a video tutorial of your workflow, would be something i def would buy.

Re: Should I trust this video???

might be a good idea for you chris, i feel like today a lot of people are very intrigued and quick to jump on some sort of video, rather then reading about it.

guess seeing it dont first hand is a lot easier to grasp.

might be a good market out there for you.

if it it true what you are saying Gerry, about that it isn't a real law and just invented by him self, it would be possible to get your money back, because the fake law stinks, but the DVD has no tut. about skin, but are the other tut. useful? and are the photo's with it useful?

Seeing the blad's PSD file is pretty sweet, the detail is crazy on those cameras. WOW. However He does all the retouching on one layer with only a couple adjustments layers so you can't really see too much. I wish he would have done the tutorial on the other model in the PSD files.

I would be all over a video from Chris
hurry up! lol

Re: Should I trust this video???

Mine still hasn't come yet, I understand it's coming from washington but dang....12 days to get to Ohio !!!??? The shipping should be $1.00 for that speed.

I'll let you know what I think of it tomorrow. I am particularly interested in the Modeling with dodge & burn techniques, I know how to do it but the artistic side of it escapes me.

Judging by the before/after from the lips video (which wasn't there before I ordered) there seems to be quite a bit changing.

Honestly I never took it as a DVD on how to retouch just skin. I took it as tutorials that helped you achieve the magazine advertising look, with some skin retouching I assumed but not the whole movie.

One thing I didn't expect was so much primer stuff, such as all of part one...I'm hoping thats just not basic tool review, but I havn't seen it yet so who knows.

Re: Should I trust this video???

I had sent a email why it was during so long for i get the DVD and i asked if there are really no tut. on skin.

i've got this email back:

"Hello Ruud

Thank you for your email. I must apologize, for some reason your order was lost in our system and didn't get shipped last week. I have contacted our shipping dept and had them ship it to you right now.



No skin tutorial on the DVD? That is absolutely not true, the entire video is dedicated to beauty retouching, it is all about the skin and face. The instructor shows his entire process for beauty retouching, the same process that was used for all of the samples on our website, it most definitely covers skin. The best advice I can give is to judge for yourself, I am sure you will be happy with the video once you have a chance to view it in its entirety.



Sincerely,

Re: Should I trust this video???

to be fair there is 10 minutes on skin but anyone who has done basic retouching won't be happy with it.

I was hoping to learn how to deal with problem areas or problem skin, different tones, coloring. Vitaly even mentions in the DVD the model has flawless skin to begin with.

Also to be fair, there is a lot of other info on fixing hair, teeth, eyes, etc... but personally skin is the holy grail and the healing brush didn't cut it for me.

If you're new to retouching it's a great starter dvd, not worth $200 though.

hmmm hopefully he will release a dvd dealing with skin techniques with less than perfect skin. I was also hoping to see some D+B skin correction.
