If you're going to Photoshop World in Vegas next month (Sept 5- 7), I hope you'll check out one of my classes. I'm teaching three sessions in the conference track this year, and I’m doing a retouching session at Wacom’s booth on the Expo floor:

Wednesday: Light it, Shoot it, Retouch it
I start with an empty stage, set up the lighting and then light a live model to show you three different looks (from one light) and after the shoot I take those images in Lightroom and Photoshop to show the start-to-finish retouch. That way, you see the entire process from start to finish, and you learning the lighting, shooting and retouching.

Thursday: Tips & Tricks for Shooting Sports
I’ve had so many people ask me to do a class on shooting sports, and this class includes lots of tips on everything from gear to shooting techniques, insights and advice, and lots of helpful pointers from a ton of my own research and shooting in the field. If you’re into shooting sports (or you want to shoot sports), you’ll totally dig this presentation.

Friday Morning: Portrait Retouching Secrets [Wacom Booth] In this session, taught in Wacom’s presentation theater on the expo floor, I’m going to share some of my very favorite portrait retouching techniques along with how I use a tablet in my retouching work (I could not retouch without one. Well, I’ve had to on occasion, but it’s brutal). Lots to share in this 30-minute session.

Friday: Lightroom Killer Tips
This is an updated version of my popular class on the Lightroom track, with some cool stuff for Lightroom 4. I learned a bunch of new stuff since last time, so I updated the class to add these new techniques, and this is another one of those classes that I can't wait to teach.

Anyway, if you're going, I'd love to see you in one of my sessions, so I hope you'll drop by. If you haven't planned on going, why not? Here's the linkâ”come and spend a few days taking your career, and your skills, up a big notch (warning: if you go even once, you'll want to go every year. Ask anyone that's been to one). See you in Vegas in just a few weeks!
