Training – Rockstar

ROCK´n ROLL Guys!!! Ok prepare yourselves because I think this is my best retouching class so far!!!

In this, my latest video tutorial I’m going to take you through the entire retouching workflow and show everything step by step that went into making my ROCKSTAR image.

You’re going to learn so many Freaky Photoshop Techniques PLUS even more cool techniques that work great on a picture like this that has so much energy and atmosphere!

The training starts with the Raw file where I’ll go through and explain the lighting used, the camera settings and of course the idea behind the original picture so you get to know how I think about and shoot pictures just like this.

Then comes the really fun part when we dive into Photoshop and I go through everything to turn the Raw file into the final image, and believe it or not, it’s not actually that difficult… if you know all the steps :)

The duration of the class is about 1,5 hours and after purchasing the training you’ll receive a download link giving you access to all the chapters, but hey don’t forget… this isn’t basic training where I explain things like masks and layers; this training is for all the people out there who like to learn some freaky retouching techniques to create images just like this.

Oh and so you know, all the retouching was done in Photoshop CS6 but no problem if you don’t have that because easily 90% can be done in older versions of Photoshop too.

For watching he tutorials we recommend you download the Free, VLC player, and of course if you have a tablet like an iPad for example, you can also import the movie files into iTunes to watch them later ‘on the go’.

If you have any questions regarding this or any other training classes then feel free to contact us.
