We have an opportunity for SPG members to attend a 3.5 hour workshop on digital retouching. While this normally costs $149 per person, you will receive a discount code simply by RSVP'ing here which brings the price down to $99. These courses are each limited to 20 people.
The course will be Tuesday, July 26th, from 6:00pm to 9:30pm, and Wednesday July 27th, from 6:00pm to 9:30pm at the Courtyard Marriott Southcenter. You can sign up for either, though the second one is already nearly full. Myself and several of the assistant organizers will be attending the Tuesday course.
After you RSVP for this event here and receive your discount code, you will need to then register at the following link to actually secure your seat:
Here is more info about the workshop and instructor:
"My background and training came from Playboy, but for the past several years I have been retouching for many national photogs/publications/retailers/etc and teaching beauty retouching classes throughout the US and Canada. My classes get phenomenal feedback and I absolutely love getting out and meeting others in the industry.
The techniques are all built for speed and focus on cutting your processing time without sacrificing quality. Everything in my port can be retouched in 20 mins or less... we do many of them live in class. Most are surprised at the simple alternatives to the complex processes we have been trained to retouch with. This workflow is super effective and sort of the result of my experiments when I went independent from Playboy in '08. I quickly realized that taking 2 hours on each image would not a living make once I was not on salary lol.. The techniques are simple enough for beginners to pick up and more advanced users can expect to significantly reduce processing time.
The class is very interactive and makes for a great learning experience.. I am pleased with the phenomenal feedback it has received. A workbook with complete step-by-step techniques including tool settings, tips, tricks, etc will also be given to you so you won't need to worry about taking notes or remembering everything. You will also have a chance to submit images of your own for live retouching during our session."
