For this Advanced Photoshop for Photographers course, Karl is joined by professional retoucher Viktor Fejes.
Viktor, who started using Adobe Photoshop at the age of eight years old, joins Karl to present this series of Photoshop classes, where he demonstrates advanced Photoshop techniques to retouch a series of practical examples, from beauty images to product images.
In this first class the pair sit down to answer some of the fundamental questions of retouching — why we retouch, what should we retouch and how we can tell a story through an image. Together they then review some of Viktor’s work, discuss his workflow and the thought process behind the retouching applied to each image.
