During this course, you will build upon existing knowledge of Adobe Lightroom, and dive into Adobe Photoshop CC. You will work with RAW files in both programs, learn the benefits of non-destructive editing, key workflow concepts, and file management. Students use both global and local adjustments in Lightroom to control color and contrast and then move onto Photoshop for further refinement. This course explores the tools palette, adjustment layers and retouching techniques through daily class demonstrations. Other topics explored throughout the week are image content and composition, camera controls and lens choices, file management and workflow concepts, specific considerations for both color and black and white images, histograms and controlling color from capture to output.
Outside of the lab, students explore Maine’s scenery to create new images. Daily lectures, demonstrations, and lots of hands-on lab work provide students with the opportunity to advance their skills and take their images to the next level. Participants leave the Workshops with newfound digital knowledge and prints of their images that showcase the week’s intensive lab work.
