Natalia Taffarel / The Conference
Friday, 14th of June / 3:45 pm to 7:30 pm
→ Please not that the duration of the event has been extended since we have added new speakers. However Natalia's scheduled presentation time has not changed.
"Retouching; myths and realities of the industry"
The Natalia Taffarel Conference is an inspiring open event happening on the Friday evening before the workshop weekend. The conference is designed to serve as a stand alone opportunity for a wider number of aspiring retouchers and digital artists and as a precursor to all those attending the Master Class weekend. If you’re unable to attend the Master Class don’t miss out on this conference because you will gain valuable insight into how to take your professional retouching to the next level. It is also a great networking opportunity.
Topics covered will include:
- Who are your inspirations?
- What are the industry standards?
- Who is your ideal target?
- What are the current trends?
- What has been done already?
- Photoshop deconstruction, breakdown of select shots (before/after/layer deconstruction)
Finally Natalia will explain the importance of control and planning. After all, nothing happens by chance.
And if you're lucky, she will even show you a trick or two.
Please note that this Conference is FREE to attend if you book for the Natalia Taffarel: High End Retouching Masterclass.
