I love Lisa Carney’s classes!
She is casual yet precise, and she thinks like I do!
The workflow logic of her process is brilliant. Really brilliant. I started working in PS version 1.something, as the publisher I worked for was just computerizing their department, and I was a total novice. But right from our first day working digitally, we had to create images and files that our novice printers could successfully print from. Lisa’s logic/approach is so familiar! Making things work on a deadline is an incredible way to learn time-saving techniques, and I wish I’d had Lisa crunching solutions with me.
I am new to the newest PSCC, but all off her process made sense to me. She moves fast, so it might be a little tough for a total beginner, but she stops and explains things very clearly once she’s gone through it a time or two on a file, so, hopefully everyone can get things solidified for themselves.
Now that I am retired and doing my photo work just for myself, her compositing techniques are helping me get to my end results much more quickly. I wish I had a Lisa sitting alongside me, with a glass of wine, while I’m experimenting with my creative composited work.
Thank you so much for having her as a CreativeLive instructor/mentor.
I took advantage of Photoshop Week and caught this class live - and loved it!
I own other CreativeLive food photography courses, but I really liked the way Lisa and Christina taught the image shoot segment in this one.
They show us a little glimpse of how the retoucher and photographer work together, in real time, on the set and I like that.
Lisa and Christina are also very giving with their knowledge of how things work behind the scenes as well.
Though, the main reason I bought this course was for the info Lisa shared about file naming and file version organization.
There are a lot of video's on how to perform functions in Photoshop, but almost none about correctly naming, and organizing your versions.
Now, I've got a real base to start from. Thanks :)
I don't usually write reviews, but after viewing this course ... to see "recommended" at 67% because of one review is misleading. Not diminishing the content of that review/reviewer, but my opinion given the time and the subject matter this class was fabulous - especially the interaction between the retoucher and the photographer. Demonstrating and detailing the relationships, and how to make them better, was invaluable. And although it was quick, given the time, I now have a much better understanding of the workflow for how to shoot for retouching, and how to retouch my own images for multi-use after first completion.
