  • Calvin, Natalia, who's next !?

    Hi guys,

    I have bought both Calvin Hollywood and Natalia Taffarel's DVD and they both are awesome
    so I just was thinking who's DVD should I get for the next level ? I searched here and there and now am confused between two names, Gry Garness and Joel Grimes.
    I like both of their work, and probably I'll buy both of the DVD/Videos but thats not for sure, so I was thinking which one should I buy 1st ?

    any help/suggestions or maybe good reviews for both ? I read some reviews about Gry Garness but didnt find anything about Joel videos !!


    Thanks in advance

        I'll be buying Gry's eventually. Its a little pricey though?

          Maybe instead of spending more money on tutorials, spend time using the techniques learned on a range of images. Put the hours in, like 5,000+ until it you can easily see where and when to use a particular technique to fix or enhance an image, and do it effortlessly.

          I wouldn't recommend the Joel Grimes retouching DVD to any with with more than very basic Photoshop skills. He spends very little time on the DVD explaining anything in detail, and basically makes a very quick and rough example of the finished images seen on his website. What he shows you in the DVD is exactly what you see here -

            The RetouchPro Live shows and rebroadcasts on youtube are really good stuff, and reasonably priced.

            $10-15 for two hour hi-end tutorials, you really can't beat that.

              For me, I would recommend Gry Garness DVD. I don't have the DVD yet but I got all of her ebooks before. I do have Joel's tutorial though. Compare the DVD and the one by Joel Grime, Joel's one is more of focusing on some specific technique that he used. Where as Gry's DVD would be very essential and you could apply on many of the retouching works. The contents are much more.

              The only factor that made alot of people hesitate from wanting to purchase is the probably the price of the DVD.

                I have both of Calvin Hollywood and Natalia Taffarel's DVDs, I also have Gry - it is INTENSE, just like Natalia's , it complements and rounds up what Natalia started, I strongly recommend it, worth every penny.

                If I may, I would strongly recommend Karl Taylor's DVD in addition to all, http://www.karltaylorphotography.co....graphy-DVD.htm
                unlike those two ladies, his stuff is fast, and just like Calvin brought those "OHs" and "AHs" and why I did not think of this and that, Karly is the same and his stuff is fast to implement as that of Calvin.

                I think by having Natalia, Gry, Calvin and Karl, you don't need any thing else other than your hard work and imagination and like some one else said, just watch the tutorials.
