It was a real pleasure having you here in Denmark, and I learned a lot from your workshop.
Not only do we learn how you communicate with the model, how to read the light properly, and having a great composition, but also the workflow on your post process with high details and skills.
Looking forward to working with you again Stanislav, you are a true inspiration for many photographers around the world.
I really really recommend others who has the opportunity, to take the workshop/masterclass with Sean Archer Photography, it is with out a doubt worth it.
Im very glad that I took your lesson. It was a big step up in my learning curve and you were just great in your teaching skills and advices all the way. The best money I've ever spent on photography and I really mean that.

I can highly recommend this workshop.
Sure you get the possibility to know the technique in the post process. That saves some time which is good.
But even more valuable, Stanislav Puchkovsky have some good arguments to why and how you could improve your skills in photography and composition.
This is actually more that just a "shoot a model Workshop" This is genuine knowledge that will give you a new "take" on portrait photography.
You can use this as a new tool in most aspects of you portrait photography.

Photoshop is an important tool. As important as your camera and lens. Some people believe that “true photography” is unedited shots from the camera. I don’t agree. Real life is MUCH better, brighter, detailed and deeper than any photo from any camera. So, it’s not a reality. It’s pale copy of reality. And what you do with editing is not “enhancing of reality”. I believe it’s possibility to make it closer to life, closer to breathtaking beauty of real people.

I found my own way in retouch, you will be surprised how simple it is. All you need to know is Photoshop basics (you can be an absolute beginner). I don’t use frequency separations, masks and any complicated methods at all. It’s really simple and very fast. Usually, it’s only 10-30 minutes of work with one photo. And the result is good enough for covers!
Have your laptops with you with Photoshop installed if you would like to follow his editing and try to do the same steps by yourself.
