    Portrait Retouching with PS & LR

    Whether you need to retouch glamorous models from your last fashion shoot or a family photo for this year's christmas cards, this workshop will teach you how to take advantage of Photoshop's plethora of powerful image editing tools for professional quality portrait retouching. This workshop will take you through a variety of tools and techniques for retouching in Lightroom and Photoshop independently and in conjunction with one another. We will demonstrate the process we use for retouching portraits for our paid clients as well as more elaborate and creative techniques.

    We will be projecting our computer's screen on a 50 inch TV for students to follow along. Handouts will be provided, but taking notes is recommended.

    We will provide sample images for all students to follow along with, but feel free to bring your own portraits if you wish.


    Bring the following:

    Laptop with power cable or full battery

    Adobe Photoshop (CS3 or Higher) - Already Installed

    Lightroom (Version 3 or higher) - Already Installed

    External mouse or graphics tablet (Recommended)

    Notebook and pen/pencil (Recommended)

    Laptop with charging cable or fully charged battery


    Don't have Photoshop or Lightroom? No Problem.

    Click here to download the free 30 day trial from Adobe.



    You do not need both programs to attend this class. We will cover how to use both programs independently as well as together. If you do not have Lightroom, you can use Photoshop Camera Raw.

    We will be using Lightroom 5 and Photoshop CC. We recommend that students have Photoshop CS3 or higher and Lightroom 3 or higher, but please note that some tools that we demonstrate may not be available in these earlier versions.
