Re: Calvinize...

Yep, I too have bacome a fan. Am not a beginner retoucher and have retouched for some major clients in London for many years now, and although acheving the final results that Calvin does were within my capability, the method he got to them were a lot more concise with far less hassle than the techniques I have adopted and used for years, so a mighty 2 thumbs up to him and money very well spent. Have looked at tuts on all the American pros (the Kelbys and Dekes, the latter who I do really rate) but none cut to the chase and use blending modes with such intuition and visual impact. They are not conventional (inverting vivid light high passes and then gaussian blurring to clean and re-sharpen skintones - genius) but, by gum, they work. Well done Calvin. You are a breath of fresh air to the industry and your techniques are eye-opening even to the heavyweight retouchers out there. Any beginner-intermediate would save years of experimentation by investing in these tuts!

Re: Calvinize...

I think you hit the point, he does bring fresh air to the subject. I mean, who would think that Gaussian blur could be used to Sharpen or that there is such a thing as Global D&B. Ingenious to say the least. He gets to the point way too fast, makes me want to scream "how I did not think of that". I can't wait for his next DVD.
Honestly, his dvd made me feel like an idiot, so simple stuff and yet, so far to grasp. He is like a magician, get a rabbit out of an empty hat.
