Bringing Your Image to Life
Let Alan show you how to take your images from “ho-hum” to “wow” in this 90-minute small group workshop. Using both his own and participant images, Alan will talk you through the tools and techniques he uses to transform an image, translating the literal to something more personal and expressive. Think of it as an image “makeover.” You’ll not only enjoy seeing what he can do with your image, you’ll learn how to post-process quickly and effectively by watching how he transforms other participant images.
He’ll use at least one image from each participant to work his magic, and you’ll have an edited image file to print out at the end of the session. You’ll also receive a recording of the session to refer to time and again as you master post-processing and extracting the vision from your capture or negative. On the agenda:
- Learn why Alan likes Lightroom for initial global adjustments, and then switches to Photoshop for nuance and finishing
- See how Curves can magically enhance tonality
- Learn what Overlay Layers can do to make image tonal adjustments without altering your actual image layer
- Discover when enough is enough and when to stop
If you work in film, Alan can use a scan of one of your negatives to show you what’s possible in the darkroom!
Limited to 5 participants. Current Schedule:
