You will view Chris's full-sized desktop live via your web browser as he demonstrates his techniques for making black and white HDR images with his unique stylized look. Chris will explain what he's doing along the way, with me (Doug Nelson) along to forward audience questions.

This is a blend of 2 versions
From Chris:
"This is pushing HDR and tone mapping outside its normal confines. The detail that is brought out along with the thinking process involved when processing this are all huge factors in making this a compelling advanced addition to advanced HDR and tone mapping. The discussion will include a brief review of the finer points from the last session, then processing techniques beyond tone mapping and moving into using the black and white palette to get yet another look alltogether. I will also discuss why an image makes a good candidate for B&W and what to consider when capturing the images."
After Chris is finished with his presentation, he will answer more general questions on a time available basis.

User comments about RetouchPRO LIVE:
"It really felt like a private 2-hour class where you get to ask specific questions which you wouldn't get a chance to otherwise."
"The quality of streaming was great, no problems at all, and I could see a difference in colour when adjusted by 1%."
"This was without a doubt a stroke of genius to plan, put together, and execute a class like this. It is nearly perfect for those of us who have a tough time physically as well as financially traveling to other locations for classes."
" thing for Photoshop and fotogs on the web. Period."
