Over many years as a pro landscape and nature photographer I have developed many different ways of creatively processing images. From Grand Landscapes to Intimate Scenes there are many techniques that can be used for a variety of creative results in processing. In this one day class, we will take a deep dive into image development both in Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop. I will be taking you through a complete workflow process over the course of the day.
1. Basic RAW Development: - 1.5 hours starting at 9am (New York)
In the first class we will discuss all of the basic development panels, using custom profiles, creating and using presets as well as the selective adjustment tools
2. Photoshop Workflow: Layers Adjustments, Brushes & Luminosity Masks in Photoshop - 2 hours starting at 12noon (New York)
I will get you up to speed on the most important things a nature & landscape photographer needs to know when working in Adobe Photoshop. We will discuss Layer Adjustments, using masks and brushes to selectively apply adjustments, working with luminosity masks for even greater control and how to use blending modes to better control tone and color as well as for creative adjustments.
3. Putting It All Together: 6 Examples from start to finish - 3 hours starting at 3pm (New York)
In this class we take all we have learned and figure out how to process 6 very different landscape/nature photos for creative results. This is the fun stuff folks where we get to now be creative in our development and find ways to work the image to its best potential. Students will be provided with the 6 raw files to be able to work along with the instruction in this class.
All three classes will be edited and recorded and anyone who registers for the webinar will have access to the recording for one year after the class date.
