- [Voiceover] Welcome, my name is Chris Orwig, and I'll be your host and guide on this training adventure, and I'm 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. And I'm excited about this training, because we're gonna approach retouching from a photographic perspective, and what we're gonna do in this training, is we're gonna connect the dots. We're gonna put all the pieces together. You're gonna 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, yet what you're looking for is a training title that puts all of that together in one context.

Well I cannot wait to dig into the content that we have ahead of us, so without further delay, let the adventure begin.
