I'm very pleased to announce that we will be adding ONE MORE 5-hour session on Artistic Retouching with Karen Vaisman, so if you missed our first workshop this past weekend, you won't want to miss this second fantastic opportunity to learn how Karen uses Imagenomics, Nik, OnOne and Photoshop in her gorgeous images. You will leave this workshop feeling confident in your ability to produce the kinds of results as shown on this page.
Delivered in a classroom setting, the class will focus on working with one image, provided to you at the beginning of class, and going step-by-step through Karen's workflow. Karen will share her secrets with you on professionally retouching and finishing using Photoshop CS5 or CS6, Imagenomics, Nik Software and OnOne. Specialty filters will be demonstrated by Karen to showcase how to get her exquisite polished results. The class is not meant to learn everything about Photoshop – it has a targeted goal to learn the techniques to professionally retouch one glamour image from start to finish. You will be amazed..!
Karen will also be doing a professional Critique of your images, so you will want to provide two images on a thumbdrive and bring it to class. You may use any type of image, but since this is all about portraiture, we would love to see your portraits! This is a wonderful opportunity to have your images evaluated by a seasoned pro.
