"This show is about creating black & white images that emulate the traditional darkroom print. I've printed my own work in the darkroom for over 15 years and have lots of advice on how to make the grain look film-like and achieve the right tonality. I will be showing my high contrast Lith technique; a simple recipe that works on most BW images, using Smart Objects and a rarely used filter. Using another image I will show how 2 adjustment layers can be combined for a flexible BW conversion, followed by a simple split tone. With a third image I'll focus more in-depth on grain, texture, quality and printability."

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."
