The smallest details will make or break a portrait. We see so many faces everyday, it becomes easy to pick out a poorly retouched image. Learn the skills of how to retouch men/women/children, and the different things to look for.
The three most important areas when retouching a portrait are going to be the eyes, the teeth, and the neck/chin/jowels. Do it right, and you can make the person look great. Here, we are going to discuss these problem areas, what to look for, and what you can do about it. Sometimes all it takes is a soft and subtle correction to fix some of the worst portraits, and create the Perfect Portraits.

Join us as we discuss the various steps to retouch: Skin, Eyes, Teeth, Jowels and even fix lighting. We will go over studio shots, as well as indoor/outdoor candid.
This meeting is not about "how" to use Photoshop, but rather the key areas to fix, that bring the most life back into the image. It's about the skills and techniques, not the tools. Of course Photoshop will be used to demonstrate, but its less about how, more about why.
