RetouchPRO LIVE "Detective" with Steve Caplin

Everything in this noirish scene is made purely with Photoshop's built-in tools and commands. Watch Steve's desktop live as he builds this scene from start-to-finish and answers audience questions.

A photo-realistic scene? This looks more like an illustration...

It looks more like Steve's style, which is photoillustration (makes sense). In his show before last, he built a pocketwatch that looked as good as any 3D render, then softened it. You could use the exact techniques Steve is sharing here to make your own image anywhere along the real/drawn spectrum.

The ticket sales link for today's live show is now closed.

Here's a helpful page if you have audio problems (scroll 2/3 down)

If you haven't received your confirmation email, check your spam folder.

If you can't connect, verify you have Java installed and active.

Come back to this thread after the show and tell us your thoughts about it. Also, give us your requests for future shows with Steve Caplin.

Wink Re: RetouchPRO LIVE "Detective" with Steve Caplin

And as said on the show itself - I shall now go into therapy for intense feelings of inadequacy. Another brilliant job by the one and only Steve Caplin! Since I do have to do quite a bit of imaginative painting myself in Photoshop, I would love to see an entire webinar or at least a large portion of it with some tips on how to "look at" light and shadow. So paramount in having one's images look real.

Hope you find your missing hinge ball Doug.

Re: RetouchPRO LIVE "Detective" with Steve Caplin

I guess the first show I watched was the holloween show, even though I never intended to do greeting cards or anything alike. I am just mesmerized with the way Steve approaches images and work wonders. So count on me on his shows even if the subject doesn't seem to be of much interest to me, I always pick up some techniques to improve my vision and workflow. And... I had the "How to cheat..." before these shows :-) Great shows, thanks a lot
