Re: RetouchPRO LIVE 06/10/09 Feedback Thread

Hi all
thanks for the answers CJ. Like I said before, it was fairly clear what he was doing - it is interesting how much just video showed, without the sound.
I would have liked to hear the discussion at the end though - that sounds very interesting. What did he say about getting clients and breaking into the illustration market, SandiG?

I find it interesting that Steve masked out the fence from the body, rather than adding an extra fence layer in front of the body as I would have done.

I always find it helps with edges and seams to work with what I call my "sandwich" workflow when compositing - (working from bottom): background first, then cast shadow of added objects, then added objects, then copy of background, masked, in front of added objects...

Rather than his workflow, which was - (working from bottom): background first, then cast shadow of added objects, then added objects with background masked out...

Anyone have any comments as to this workflow?
Which do you all use?

Excellent Event, Hard Light Method is awesome to manipulate Shadow/Highlights in realistic way, if anyone goes to the full montage dot com there are lot to learn in the section "How does this work", Great possibility in photoshop you will know there.

I've long been an admirer of Steve's illustrations and it was great to see him work. It's not my type of retouching, but I still learned a few few tricks. Great humour and a great presentation. Thumbs up!
