a thought for the live broadcasts (Doug)

Would it be possible for us to get the same photo the LIVE professional retoucher is getting? A couple of weeks ahead so that we can try our hand on it before the pro gets it. It would be really helpful to see how a pro solves the problems that we've encountered.

And we could ask pertinent questions, too.

(sorry if this has been brought up before)

It's a good idea, and has been brought up many times before. Getting image permissions is hard enough just for show use (you'd be amazed, I spent a month for one image, and another image just fell through two days ago requiring a quick replacement to be found). I still try, but so far no photographer has been willing.

I guess I'm dense. Why are photographers so reluctant? While you would want a good photograph for the pro to work on (and nice for us too), it doesn't have to be the best of the lot, the one they want to sell or were paid for and don't have client permissions for. You can see I'm confused. What is it that they are afraid of us doing with the photograph? We could "sign" something.

Thanks for responding. I'm sure you're very busy, especially today. And thanks for doing the shows. They're very helpful and I'm learning alot. And I really want to make a go of this business of retouching!
