  • Announcing RetouchPRO LIVE - 05/27/09

    I'm pleased to announce our first ever live interactive retouching event: RetouchPRO LIVE

    This is a 2+ hour live session taking place May 27, 2009 at 9pm Eastern time.

    Watch live in your browser as Chris Tarantino does a beauty retouch while he and I discuss his technique. You'll also be able to ask questions.

    Hopefully this will be the first of many such events, covering lots of topics with different guest artists. Whether there will be more of these depends solely upon the attendance at this one, so tell everyone you know to buy a ticket and show up (it's only $10!).

      Ummm. Its all I can take to do it the first time listening to the crickets chirping.
      Don't make me do it again!

      Honestly, I really don't know what's in the back of Doug's mind about this.

            Perfect time for me, but too much $$$. I'll wait for the free reruns.

              Post the Australian time here once you figured it out.

              There will probably be a DVD available some time after the live event, but with production costs and shipping, attending live will be the less expensive viewing option.

                  It sounds really fun and interesting... sadly I am counting on being slightly comatose at that time. Working with a festival and will be on my feet from 06.00 on the 25th 'til approximately 08.00 on the 26th. SO I'll be cutting some major Z's on the 27th

                    Assuming we get enough attendance to warrant further events, we'll introduce some scheduling options in the future.

                    I cannot stress enough how important it is for everybody to spread the word about this. Even if you're not interested in this particular session or just can't make it, post the details link on other sites you visit, email friends, etc.

                    If this works, I plan on offering similar sessions with a wide range of guest artists and topics. But none of that will happen if it just ends up being me, Chris, and a few forum regulars in this first session.

                      Could you guys post a Plan of this session?
                      I think it could help some people to decide if they are interested or not.

                        The "plan" is simply watching Chris turn the before image into the after image in real time (see link above). An over-the-shoulder view of a skilled professional retoucher at work. With the exception of that he'll be explaining what he's doing as he's going along, which I doubt he does when his desktop isn't being broadcast. And, time allowing, he'll answer questions at the end.

                          I will try to attend. Chris' work is great.

                          I'd just like to mention that for the future I'd like to see something on product retouching: jewelry, cosmetics, cars, etc. There's such a dearth of that kind of instruction to be found anywhere, be it in books, videos, forums, what have you.

                            I'm happy to take requests for future events. That particular one is already on my to-do list, along with several others. But it all hinges on the success of this first one, so don't wait to register. The sooner I can gauge the popularity of this, the sooner I can start lining up experts for future presentations.

                                by Doug Nelson
                                I've got some serious thinking to do about the future of RetouchPRO LIVE.

                                RetouchPRO LIVE is more popular than it's ever been. My thanks to everyone for that continued support. I love doing the shows, and it warms my heart when I read the feedback about how much they're helping you....

                                What day of the week and time of day would be best for you to attend a future RetouchPRO LIVE event? Keep in mind they'll be at least 2 hours long.

                                Please specify your time zone.

                                Obviously I can't schedule events for every ideal time, but I'm hoping to find a couple of...

                                Be honest, but also be fair (after all, it's our first time).

                                There are separate threads for future topic requests.

                                RetouchPRO LIVE "Caricature" with Rodney Pike
                                by Doug Nelson
                                For our next all-new RetouchPRO LIVE show, I'm pleased to announce our first show with Rodney Pike.

                                I first became aware of Rodney's work last year when his caricatures went viral and got posted to Digg, Reddit, and just about every other blog with even a passing interest in photos....
