Thank you for your interest in this workshop despite the short notice.
 In this day and age it doesn’t take a savvy viewer to pick out a poorly retouched portrait. The tiniest details can wow the viewer and enable a portrait to either pop off the screen or exile it to the land of digital ruin.
In this 5 hour workshop you will learn professional retouch techniques ranging reducing and removing blemishes, wrinkles, fixing hair and makeup, enhancing the eyes and other unwanted features using basic Photoshop tools
The aim of the workshop is to show you how retouching techniques  can be used vastly in any portrait and thereby giving you more confidence with the use of Photoshop
This is basically me giving myself to you and telling you how I retouch my portrait work. The workshop will be fully practical and interactive; it’s more like chilling with me as I share my knowledge on portrait retouching.
I’ve decided to have a weekday class and a weekend class for your convenience, both with the same curriculum.
After the 5 hours you will hopefully be more confident in retouching your portraits!
