Some retouching tutorials

I have been watching this Digital Retouching video tutorial for quite sometime now and I want to share this with everybody (well for those who doesn't know this one yet) It came from one that I looked up in photo retouching Ms. Carrie Beene, I find it so simple and easy to follow compare to other retouching tutorial from youtube so I decided to share it here.

Some background: Carrie Beene has been retouching professionally since 2000. She has worked in or freelanced for many of the major retouching houses in NYC.  In 2005 she formed Otto Imaging, LLC. And now retouches through OTTO and CarrieNYC.

 She regularly do LIVE retouching tutorial for together with Cris Tarantino, Amy Dresser and some other guys.

It's a simple clean retouch but it's very useful and informative since she discuss some PS shortcuts and color correction and her style of dodge and burn.
