(NOTE: If you watch this one-minute long video above now, you can skip all the way down to the last lne of text for details). 

If you missed my “Light it, Shoot it, Retouch it” LIVE tour, you can now finally experience the entire seminar, from start to finish, and get the same tour workbook (in color no less), plus all freebies I gave out for attendees, starting today no matter where you live as we are making the day available as a digital download (just like you’d buy a movie online to download).

Although I was able to visit many major cities in the US, Canada, and even three cities in Europe, there were just so many places we didn’t get to visit with the tour. But now no matter where you are, you can attend the entire event, just as it happened, live from beginning to end. You’ll learn all the techniques, all the lighting, all the retouching, and you’ll absolutely have the best seat in the house, but at literally half the price.

We are SO excited to bring this to you our friends around the world —- our first-ever start-to-finish full day seminar available now anywhere you are.

Here’s the link to download the full digital seminar today (it’s just $49.99 US).

Earlier this week, Bryan Hughes and Zorana Gee from the Adobe Photoshop Team stopped by the studio to answer your questions about Photoshop CS6, and they shared some of their favorite CS6 tips and improvements.

Also, here’s the full list of JDI changes they mentioned during the show. Our thanks to Bryan and Zorana — they’e connecting with Photoshop users directly and I just think that’s really cool (and really rare these days).

 

I am really excited to launch this brand new tour, which is headed to a bunch of US cities this summer, including Nashville, (which I haven’t had a chance to teach there in years), and I hope you’ll get a chance to come out and spend the day with me.

I’ve got SO much new stuff to share, including all the new stuff for photographers in CS6 (there’s plenty!), and all my latest techniques (I’ve got a bunch of cool new stuff), and I can’t wait to get there and share it all. Here’s the five classes I’m teaching each day:

> My new “Photoshop Seven Point System” for Camera Raw (or Lightroom’s Develop module)
> The 10 portrait retouching techniques every photographer needs to know
> More Photoshop Down & Dirty Tricks for Photographers
> My latest Photoshop Killer Tips (all the timesaving, job-saving, tips)
> Before & Afters (I show you the final image, and then exactly how to get there step-by-step starting with the raw out-of-the-camera image).

Here’s the first four stops on my tour:

>  Sacramento, California (July 18th)
>  Nashville, Tennessee (July 23rd)
> Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (July 27th)
> New York City (July 30th)

Here’s all the details, and how to sign up (It’s just $99 for the full day, including a detailed printed workbook).

I hope to meet there in person at one of my tour stops. :)

Mesdames et messieurs bonjour!

Even though I’m still in Paris wrapping up our shoots here, I did see where starting today the Adobe Creative Cloud is now available, which ushers in a new era for Adobe, and a new opportunity for creative people all over the world (can’t you just hear that ELO song in your head right now? “All over the world-er-er-erld.”)

If you’re not up-to-date on the Creative Cloud, I did a post here a few weeks back with a quick Q&A about it and you can read it right here. Also, Adobe is offering a pretty incredible deal for existing Creative Suite customers to get on board — just $29.99 a month for the first year. Here’s the link to Adobe’s site for more details.

Congratulations for Adobe on the big launch, and Viva le Creative Cloud! :)

It couldn’t have been a better crowd or location to wrap up my “Light it, Shoot it, Retouch it” live tour than what we had last week in London, England.

What a great group of photographers — totally engaged, very responsive, lots of great questions, and some of the most kind, genuine folks I’ve had the honor to preset to. Some even brought gifts (I got everything from guitar picks (including some really cool ones), chocolate bars, British Kit Kats, and more.

My guest retoucher Glyn Dewis totally rocked it and gained LOTS of new fans, and it was such a kick sharing the stage with him. He showed loads of cool bonus stuff, and I sat in the crowd taking notes along with everyone else. Really a brilliant job and I learned a lot.

A big thanks to the awesome folks at “The Flash Centre”(http://www.theflashcentre.com/) who not only helped us with on our stage gear, but even gave away some cool Lastolite gear. Totally great folks (I visited their store in London, and if you haven’t, you definitely should — well stocked and super-helpful staff).

Also thanks to Adobe, who were there with a stand, and were kind enough to give away two copies of Lightroom 4 for our afternoon drawing.

Thanks to everyone who came out to support the tour in London, to Flash Centre, to Adobe, to my mate Glyn for an outstanding job, to Dave Clayton for once again leading the charge to get us there in the first place, and to the warm people of England who’s big smiles and kind hearts made this a trip to remember. Can’t wait to come here and teach again soon!
