Re: I share my photoshop techniques

Well obviously I just mean the retouching part, not the lighting or set up.
But does the "0,1%" mean that you don't go into that style of processing very much on the training (I only ask because some of your work has a bit of that look), or are you just saying that there's a lot more to that style than just photoshop?

For the point of clarification, if I had an unprocessed shot that was lit just like Greenberg, Hill, etc (sorry, I really need a better name for this look, since they're not the only ones doing it, and you see it all over commercial advertising), could I use what you teach in the tutorials, along with some practice and skill, and achieve that look?

0.1 % means that Dave and Jill use Photoshop and i also use Photoshop. :-)

Re: I share my photoshop techniques

Thanks, I'm looking forward to buying it, I just wanted to make sure what kind of training it was. And I think Dave and Jill may be bad examples, but I have no idea what the style is actually called, they were just the closest examples I could think of.

Maybe I should just call it Calvinized.

I have not found any video that teaches Dave Hill or Jill Greenberg. I will say that unless you are very far down the road toward understanding what goes into these styles, Calvin's video is a great starting point for getting a highly stylized post look.

Re: I share my photoshop techniques

Hi Calvin,

I look forward to checking out the blog when I return from work later today.

I would also like to thank you for putting together your latest tutorial in English, I purchased it on the weekend and I've slowly been making my way through the videos.

Very enjoyable and some fantastic techniques so far, I hope that we’ll see more tutorials in English from you in the future.

Thank You,

Jason

Simple answer: YES you can!

I bought Calvin Hollywood's Calvinized, and I have watched about 1/3 of the tutorials. I already found so many great techinques that I had to stop watching the tutorials and try them out on my own pictures. I must watch the rest as well, 'cause this training material is absolutely FULL of great and useful stuff. And the best part is, it's real easy too!

I usually do not spend money on Photoshop tutorials, but Calvinized is worth every single penny. If you want to be able to achieve the illustrated look that resembles DH/Greenberg this is the best help you can get.

I do some freelance photography/retouch jobs on occation, and I actually used the techniques from Calvinized yesterday as a suggestion on how to improve the look on a bunch of kinda boring pictures of industrial workers in a workshop to be used in their advertising. The lighting and the quality of the pictures was good, but the advertising agency thought the pictures looked kind of dull. I did a test retouch on a few pictures and they really liked it. I used the "Amazing details with blurring" tutorial, among other things, so these techniques are useful for real.
