Cool Hangout starting now!
Portraits are not only the most important pictures you make, they can also be the most profitable. As such, portraits deserve your best effort at a perfect finish, and this webinar will help you learn the principles and best methods for helping people look their best in pictures.

Kristina Sherk (www.sharkpixel.com) joins us this month from Washington, D.C. She's a photographer and retoucher with years of experience retouching and almost as many years teaching. This is your chance to tune in Live with Kristina and learn the techniques she uses to make portraits look lively and naturally beautiful.

This event is brought to you by Photofocus and Perfectly Clear, one of the best tools for making portraits look great.

Join +Richard Harrington +Dave Wilson and myself for some natural HDR discussion and demos!
In this hangout we'll explore how to use high dynamic range shooting and developing techniques to create natural looking photos.  This is perfect for shooting real estate, product photography, and landscapes.  If you think you hate HDR (but love those shadow and highlight sliders) then this workshop is perfect for you.  Don't miss this free event.

One of the most important choices you can make when creating your HDR photograph is how to use all of the exposure information.  This is where Tone Mapping and Exposure Fusion come in.

Join us for this informative hangout where we'll showcase top techniques from three HDR photographers. You'll learn from Ron Pepper, Scott Wyden Kivowitz, and Rich Harrington

Join us for some HDR talk, we plan to focus on how to get started with capturing source images and talk a bit about processing -- nice and simple!
You've probably heard about HDR photography...  but do you really understand how to shoot it properly?  In this informative and free event, top experts will share with you strategies on how to increase the dynamic range of your photos to make great looking images.  Learn how to merge multiple exposures together to make great looking photos that tell the "whole story" of the scene you captured.

This event is a partnership between Photofocus and HDRSoft.  We'll also have some great prizes to give away to those who attend live such as a copy of Photomatix.

OK, 'Expert' might be a bit strong, but please join us if you have been wondering about HDR photography or have questions!
While many have heard of (or even tried) HDR, chances are you're not doing it right (in fact you're likely overdoing it).  To help you learn more, we've lined up a top expert for an interactive discussion and webinar.

For those interested in learning more about the High Dynamic Range shooting and processing techniques, you're invited to join us next Thursday, April 9 at 10:30am PST for a Live Google Hangout and a deeper dive the many benefits this useful technique has to offer creatives of all levels.

The event is hosted by Rich Harrington and Mark Morrow of Photofocus.  We'll be joined by special guest and HDRsoft consultant Ron Pepper.  We'll tackle common questions, dispel a few myths and explore a few tips to help make the most of the Photomatix platform.

Some of the topics we'll be covering include:

Single image exposure fusion vs. Bracketing exposure
Workflow tips for both Lightroom and Bridge
Tips for applying Noise Reduction & Lens Correction
Understanding file types and bit depths
Harnessing a batch-edit workflow

Please feel free to submit any HDR-related questions of your own in the comments section below and we'll do our best to provide an answer on-air.

We'll be giving one Steadsnap Camera-Strap-Tripod Adapter away to two randomly selected attendees along the way, so be sure to join us LIVE for a chance to win!
