Value Based Workflow To Improve Your Color Images
(Includes the recording of the class for all attendees)
In today's workflow there is great emphasis on color and it stands in the way of achieving the ultimate fine image. If you are interested in taking your imagery to the next level then it's time to rethink your workflow to focus on producing a more expressive range of B&W values to achieve a more expressive color image.
We will explore a variety of approaches to pulling values from a B&W images using zone system approaches with the use of your Channels.
Note: Not in or near Seattle? Then join us live online through Adobe Connect. All who attend the workshop will recieve the recorded class free.
As an added feature for this workshop; we will include a day of digital darkroom techniques and a day of photographing landscapes in the field. On the first day the workshop will be at the Adobe Conference Center where we hold our regular meetings. This will be lecture and demo style. There we will work with organizing the imagery in Lightroom and Lightroom mobile to prepare our images for work in Photoshop.
Joini Stephen on an the optional second day, to Snoqualmie Falls to do a personal photoshoot. You are welcome to meet him there at the Gift Shop. The field work will focus on how to look for imagery that work well as both B&W and color subjects.
We will also learn how to use our digital cameras to record video as a subject to include in our creations.
To produce strong images you must pay attention to two aspects and that is its values (B&W information) and its hue (colors). I am observing that many photographers are ignoring a workflow of producing strong B&W images in favor of producing more expressive color imagery. Often time images are altered to B&W for the purposes of displaying the final image as a monochrome. But how about using the monochromatic information to enhance your color? Stephen suggests there is another workflow that can produce more striking results.
