Investigate digital imaging beyond the basic camera controls and image adjustments. Develop digital lab skills to make fine-tuned image adjustments with Adobe software. This workshop provides hands-on practice in digital image processing for those already comfortable basic camera controls and would like to move to intermediate imagemaking.
Using Adobe Lightroom 3 students learn organizational skills, basic retouching, tonality, contrast control, color saturation, converting color images to black and white, and printing methods. After mastering Lightroom, participants are introduced to the basics of Photoshop CS5, enabling refined image adjustments.
Demonstrations, lectures, and slideshow presentations address digital capture, image control, and boundless creative possibilities. Students capture images out in the field throughout the week in order to process new photographs, working with the challenges that arise from various subjects, and exploring their personal vision both in the field and in the lab.
This course is the second in a sequence of digital photography workshops, preparing students for further Photoshop exploration in the next class of the sequence, Advanced Digital Photography.
An understanding of camera functions in manual mode as well as Adobe Lightroom 3 is required.
This class is part of a multi-course sequence and may qualify for a discounted tuition of 10%. Contact email@example.com for details
