Join Outdoor Photography Canada Magazine contributing editor and professional photographer Paul Burwell for our Portrait Retouching Course that will teach you to use Photoshop (Elements 9 or CS5) to work with portrait images for retouching purposes.
You’ll learn techniques such as skin softening while retaining detail and texture, tricks for enhancing eyes, eyebrows and eyelashes, selective sharpening, body sculpting and how to give your retouches a natural look.
You will need to bring a computer (Mac or Windows, Laptop or Desktop) loaded with the latest edition of Adobe Photoshop Elements or Photoshop CS5 Software. If you don’t wish to purchase the latest edition, you may install the free 30-day trial version of the software before arriving at the first class. Please visit Adobe’s web site to download the 30-day trial version. Contact us with questions.
