Digital photography is one part photography and one part software. Without both pieces of this craft, your photos will not be all they can be. As Ansel Adams once said, “Photographs are made, not taken.”
The entire process of making an image should be informed by knowledge of what you can do with a digital photo after it has been taken. Join master photographer and best-selling author Harold Davis in a day-long workshop to examine what you can do with your photos after you click the shutter.
Harold, the author of The Photoshop Darkroom series from Focal Press, will demystify digital workflow. He’ll show you how to use Photoshop to tweak your photos and how to add bold creative effects. Topics covered in this workshop include:
The difference between RAW and JPEG
Developing a personal workflow
Processing RAW files
Using HDR to extend dynamic range
Creative color effects
Digital black & white
Harold will work individually with each workshop participant. He will help you customize your workflow, and show you the creative possibilities using your own imagery. Please bring a USB drive with ten of your photos, preferably in RAW format. A laptop loaded with Adobe Photoshop is helpful, but optional.
