To my daughter Kira:
You’ve been blessed with
so many of your mom’s gifts—
I can’t wait to see the amazing
woman you, too, will become.
Professional Portrait Retouching Techniques
Using Photoshop
After writing books for 13 years now, I still find that the thing that’s the hardest for me to write in any
book is the acknowledgments. It also, hands down, takes me longer than any other pages in the book.
For me, I think the reason I take these acknowledgments so seriously is because it’s when I get to put down
on paper how truly grateful I am to be surrounded by such great friends, an incredible book team, and
a family that truly makes my life a joy. That’s why it’s so hard. I also know why it takes so long—you type
a lot slower with tears in your eyes.
To my remarkable wife, Kalebra: We’ve been married 21 years now, and you still continue to amaze me,
and everyone around you. I’ve never met anyone more compassionate, more loving, more hilarious, and
more genuinely beautiful, and I’m so blessed to be going through life with you, to have you as the mother
of my children, my business partner, my private pilot, Chinese translator, and best friend. You truly are the
type of woman love songs are written for, and as anyone who knows me will tell you, I am, without a
doubt, the luckiest man alive to have you for my wife.
To my son, Jordan: It’s every dad’s dream to have a relationship with his son like I have with you, and
I’m so proud of the bright, caring, creative young man you’ve become. I can’t wait to see the amazing things
life has in store for you, and I just want you to know that watching you grow into the person you are is one
of my life’s greatest joys.
To my precious little girl, Kira: You have been blessed in a very special way, because you are a little
clone of your mom, which is the most wonderful thing I could have possibly wished for you. I see all her
gifts reflected in your eyes, and though you’re still too young to have any idea how blessed you are to
have Kalebra as your mom, one day—just like Jordan—you will.
To my big brother Jeff, who has always been, and will always be, a hero to me. So much of who I am, and
where I am, is because of your influence, guidance, caring, and love as I was growing up. Thank you for
teaching me to always take the high road, for always knowing the right thing to say at the right time, and
for having so much of our dad in you.
I’m incredibly fortunate to have part of the production of my books handled in-house by my own book
team at Kelby Media Group, which is led by my friend and longtime Creative Director, Felix Nelson, who is
hands down the most creative person I’ve ever met. He’s surrounded by some of the most talented, amazing,
ambitious, gifted, and downright brilliant people I’ve ever had the honor of working with.
Thank God for Kim Doty, my Editor. She is amazing, and single-handedly keeps me from visiting a nearby
tower, and climbing to the top to throw myself off (anyone catch that vague Gilbert O’Sullivan reference there?
Anybody? No?). Kim is just an incredibly organized, upbeat, focused person who keeps me calm and on track,
and no matter how tough the task ahead is, she always says the same thing, “Ah, piece of cake,” and she
convinces you that you can do it, and then you do it. I cannot begin to tell you how grateful I am to her
for being my Editor.
Working with Kim is Cindy Snyder, who relentlessly tests all the stuff I write to make sure I didn’t leave
anything out, so you’ll all be able to do the things I’m teaching (which with a Photoshop book is an absolute
necessity). She’s like a steel trap that nothing can get through if it doesn’t work just like I said it would.
