Hope all is well with you.
Thought I’d start the week off with some news about some recent magazine articles plus aheads up about a brand new workshop I’ll be doing with my Buddy Frank Doorhof over in the Netherlands.
In the latest issue of Pictures Magazine features I’ve an article on the technique I call Ugly Retouching…
The technique is actually one used more often during Beauty Retouching as it’s great for evening out skin tones, removing blemishes and a whole lot more. In this tutorial I use it to remove an unwanted shadow but retain all the original texture beneath.
If you’ve not seen the technique I recorded it as a video tutorial which you can see by signing up for the Free Newsletter here [Link]
Talking of the Newsletter, the next issue will be out in the next few days with details of new workshops both here and abroad, Photoshop Tips & Techniques, Prizes and a whole lot more.
In every issue there’s the chance to win Books & DVD’s by simply forwarding the newsletter to any of your contacts you think would like to see it and last month’s Winner was Hannah Taylor from Chard in Somerset, UK. Hannah, a copy of Scott Kelby’s Light It, Shoot It, Retouch It book [Link] is on it’s way in the post as we speak
Practical Photoshop Magazine
This sure has been a week for magazines as a picture I took of Natural Bodybuilder Nigel St Lewis appeared in a promotional advert in the recent issue of Flex rubbing shoulders with the Austrian Oak aka Arnold Schwarzennegger
Also, just to let you know in advance that in the next issue of Practical Photoshop Magazine (Issue 15) which is due out on the 30th of this month I’ve a 7 page featured tutorial.
The tutorial shows every single step from the out of camera image to the final edit of ‘The Editor‘ plus I also recorded the entire tutorial as a video which will be included in the magazine CD.
Netherlands Workshop with Frank Doorhof
I’m really excited to let you know in advance that in August of this year I’ll be teaming up with my Buddy, Fashion Photographer Frank Doorhof [Link] to give a joint workshop in the Netherlands.
Now I don’t have more details at the moment other than the dates (August 25th and August 26th) but in the very near future I’ll be able to let you know more.
Numbers will be limited and what’s fantastic is that folks have already been in touch since Frank announced it over on his Google+ page [Link] and spaces are already being reserved.
Ok that’s all for now so whatever you’re up to, have a good one and I’ll catch you back here tomorrow,
