OK, it was really just supposed to be just Dave and Corey splitting the day, but they were kind enough to invite me to do one of my favorite parts of the day---the session on Typography and Designing with Type, so now it's the three of us. The seminar is coming up on Monday, February 22nd at the Tampa Convention Center, and if you haven't had a chance to catch the tour yet, it is just one of those days that really opens your eyes to the power of Photoshop, and all the cool stuff you can do---stuff that really looks hard, but is actually easy once you know the secrets. It’s not too late to register—follow this link, where you’ll find out the full class schedule, and how to reserve your seat (It’s only $99, or $79 if you’re a NAPP member) for…
All right you guys---I convinced the crew here to give absolutely the best deal, hands-down, in the history of Kelby Training Online for "This Weekend Only." Only $149 for a full year---every trainer, every class (including my new Light it, Shoot it, Retouch it classes), the whole ball of wax. That's it. Period. No, you can't combine it with any other discounts, or anything else---just $149 for an entire year (that's less than $3 a week!). As usual, this "This Weekend Only" special deal expires at 12:00 midnight EST on this Sunday Night. >> Here's the SPECIAL LINK to get this deal (you have to use this link). << There ya go! This would make an awesome Holiday Gift for...well....anybody! :-) P.S. If you just want to look at all the classes, and see what we offer, click this link instead.
The 2nd online class in my three-part series called "Light it, Shoot it, Retouch it" went up live last week at Kelby Training Online, and this one shows how to shoot and retouch a beauty-style headshot like the one you see below left (in-house we call it the "Oil of Olay" look). I show how to create the exact same beauty-style head shot that I took which wound up being featured in FJ Westcott's 2009 lighting catalog (seen below), and you see the entire process from start-to-finish including setting up all the lighting, the shoot itself, and the retouching in Photoshop afterward. I just got incredible feedback from the first one in this series, and I hope you'll give this 2nd one a look now that it's live. Here's a link to the online class.
If you're in the San Diego area, Dave Cross and RC Concepcion, are coming to San Diego this Friday with our Adobe CS4 Creative Suite Unleashed Tour, and then onto Boston on December 1st. If you haven't had a chance to catch this special Adobe-sponsored tour, you don't want to miss it, as they cover everything from Illustrator to InDesign, from Photoshop to Flash, and how it all works together. This special tour is only $49 (or just $39 for NAPP members), and you can get all the details, or sign up, right here. Hope we'll see you San Diego on Friday, or in Boston in just a few weeks!
The first of my three "Light it, Shoot it, Retouch it" online classes went live two weeks ago, and I just heard today that they'll have the 2nd class live in just about two weeks. I've gotten loads of great feedback from the first class, so I'm looking at adding more segments in the future, so if you've got any ideas of particular lighting looks you'd like to see, let me know and they might wind up as one of my next series of shoots. :) In the meantime, here's a link to my first of the three "LSR" online classes.
My video crew was on hand at my recent Photoshop Down & Dirty Tricks seminar in Orlando, Florida, and right before the 2nd session kicked off, I did a quick little "howdy," but beyond that, they included a behind-the-scenes look at the seminar, so if you've never been to one of our one-day workshops, take a look at the video clip below for a quick glimpse at the day.
