Photoshop CS3 Portrait Retouching Techniques

with Chris Orwig

Video: Welcome

Welcome, my name Chris Orwig and I'll be your host and guide on this training adventure and I really excited about it. You know, I'm a pro photographer and I'm on the faculty of the Brooks Institute of Photography, where we are right now in this amazing lab. I'm excited about this training because we're going to approach retouching from a photographic perspective and what we're doing in this training is we're going to connect the dots. We're going to put all the pieces together. You'll experience a Photoshop retouching workflow from start to finish on a number of different images. Now I'm assuming that you have a solid base of Photoshop skills, that you've watched Photoshop CS3 for Photographers, that you've watched Photoshop CS3 Portrait Retouching.
