Re: Who's the best?

You can now, I believe, buy Vitaly's DVD for $99 which is probably what it should have sold for in the first place. If you are new to photoshop and retouching it is probably a good buy. He explains all the tools he uses and will show you the retouching of a photo. He doesn't go into much detail about dodge and burn. He does show you the liquify tool and the rescaling of the nose. Again it covers the basics well, but I would not recommend to the intermediate retoucher.

Just got it! Telling from the first impression (I'm still reading) it seems very good. Thanks!

Here is the link:

You can sign right up on his site, via paypal. The workshop is limited to 15 folks, so it's going to be great instruction. Can't wait.
I've been signed up for a few weeks, looks like I'll see you there!

Yep, there's quite a few of us going. I'm helping Frank to organize it. If you have any questions, feel free to shoot them my way.

Another interesting article about comparing different retouchers at different cost levels posted by a photographer on his website: http://photography.linke.de/2010/02/13/on-retouching/

Re: Who's the best?

quick question regarding Natalia's "series two" video. Is the series one by Vitaly a pre-requisite?

Not exactly. Hers expects you to already know the basic tools and jumps right into the work. Vitaly's spends a little time discussing the basic tools first.

So if you're new to PS you might want to start with a primer (doesn't have to be Vitaly's) but if you have some basic PS skills already I'd go straight to Natalia's.

The both cover similar ground, but his is more thorough at a basic level and hers is much more thorough at intermediate/advanced.
