RetouchPRO LIVE with Amy Dresser - 06/25/10
This show is different from any other show Amy has done for us. In fact, it's different from any other show we've done. In our typical show, including Amy's, the goal is to "perfect" the model, making them look "better". In this case, Amy will be actually changing the character of the model to something completely different.
After graduation, Amy Dresser moved to New York to embark on a freelance career in illustration before assuming a full-time retouching position with photographer, Jill Greenberg, in 2000.
For the past 8 years Amy has been based in Los Angeles, amassing an array of commercial and editorial work as a photo retoucher, illustrator, eponymic business owner, and master creator of what has come to be known in the industry as "The Amy Dresser Technique."
A partial list of projects: Key art for Harry Potter (Prisoner of Azkaban), album artwork for Britney Spears ("Circus") and Paul Oakenfeld; editorial for Entertainment Weekly, Maxim, Men's Journal, Time and TV Guide; advertising campaigns for Secret deodorant, Ed Hardy, Pepsi, Sony, Target, America's Next Top Model and Legally Blonde The Musical (plus logo effects and billboard); celebrity portraiture of Tom Cruise, Gwen Stefani, Katy Perry, Dixie Chicks, Drew Barrymore, Margaret Cho, Lil' Jon, Lil' Kim, Shakira, Snoop Dogg, Kat Von D, Dita Von Teese, Jenna Jameson, Flava Flav, Alicia Keys, Eva Longoria, Gennifer Goodwin and Ashton Kutcher.
You will view Amy's full-sized desktop live via your web browser as she demonstrates this portrait retouch from start to finish using Photoshop. Amy will explain what she's doing along the way, with me (Doug Nelson) along to forward audience questions.
After Amy is finished with her retouch, she 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."
"...best thing for Photoshop and fotogs on the web. Period."
