with Chris Orwig

Video: Welcome

(Music playing.) Welcome, my name is Chris Orwig. I'm a photographer and I'm on the faculty of the Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California and in this training title, Photograph CS4 Retouching Fashion Photography, you are going to learn some skills that will literally take your retouching to the next level. Now, what exactly are you going to learn in this training title? We are going to start off by focusing in on the small details. We'll look at how we can clean up our images because we need to do that first before we get to other enhancements and then from there, we are going to start to look at other things like skin. How can we work on the skin? Sometimes in fashion and beauty photography, we need to work on the skin in a way that it looks really natural so that we can see pores. Now, other times, we want a skin to look shiny and almost surreal. Now, of course, we are also going to need to look at the eyes. How can we add a little bit of sparkle in the eyes? How can we brighten those eyes up? And also, how can we work on the makeup? Let's say we want to enhance or add makeup. What if there are other things that we need to do that are a little bit more corrective like work on structure or shape or fix teeth for that matter? We are going to cover all of these topics and more and I'm incredibly excited about what we have ahead of us. So thanks for joining me on this one.
