RetouchPRO LIVE with Steve Koshlap
"$10 Ring" - 08/13/11
Steve Koshlap is both a solo artist and the director of Aura, an in-house, color managed photography and retouching studio that he established for a leading New York area luxury brands ad agency.
Steve specializes in jewelry and beauty retouching, using his extensive experience in prepress and commercial printing as a solid foundation for the creative work he now produces.
His client list includes Mikimoto, David Yurman, Burberry, and Calvin Klein, and he has collaborated with many of the country's top photographers. His retouching work has been recognized by NAPP, and he has written for Professional Photographer magazine.
From Steve:You will view Steve's full-sized screen live via your web browser as he demonstrates this ring retouch from start to finish using Photoshop. Steve will explain what he's doing along the way, with me (Doug Nelson) along to forward audience questions.
"I will have a discussion of:
I will then take two of the shots of the ring, combine them in Photoshop for the desired effect, then go through the entire post production retouching process step by step.
- The setup and equipment in my studio that I use to photograph jewelry, including location equipment.
- Cameras, specialty lenses, shooting accessories, light modifiers and reflectors.
- Captures of how I set up a shot, and the corresponding high-res images, as I modify the lighting.
- Apple Aperture RAW processing for the images.
The ring I am shooting is literally a $10 fake diamond ring. When we're done, it should (hopefully) look like it's worth a bit more!"
In addition, Steve will show and discuss the setup he used to photograph this ring.
Here is the image Steve will be retouching, and how it will end up:
After Steve is finished with his retouch, 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."
"...best thing for Photoshop and fotogs on the web. Period."
