Have you taken an amazing photograph in the field, only to get home and load it on your computer where it looks dull and flat? We have all been through this and it can be incredibly frustrating to be unable to translate what you saw in the field to the final product in Lightroom or Photoshop.
In this class we will share with you a unique approach to processing your images in Lightroom that breaks down the process into the fundamental elements of a photograph; colors and tones.
This simple approach tackles color and tones separately to make it easy for you to visualize each element without the other interfering with your perception. We will not be using presets, instead we will be showing you how each tool works so you can apply this to your own images.
Much of the workshop will be focused on Lightroom processing, but we will also show you what you can achieve in Photoshop using luminosity masks to extend your creativity using burning and dodging techniques. We know Photoshop can be overwhelming so we will not get over-technical and overwhelm you. We will give you a simple approach that you can actually use without years of study.
Finally, we will also give presentations on composition along with other nature photography techniques such as focus stacking, hyperfocal focusing, small scenes, and more.
