A Next-Step Photography Workshop cast over 2 days
This course will be held in Scottsdale, Arizona.
We’ll shoot, learn, light, and edit in advanced ways using Adobe Camera RAW. Bring your camera.
We’ll begin with "What's New" in the Adobe Camera RAW (ACR) editor. I'll explain what's important to your photography and why.
Next, we'll dive deep into the more powerful but less obvious features in ACR, including custom Chromatic abberation controls, curves, distortion, noise and sharpening, new shortcuts to improve efficiency and control. We'll spend ample time answering YOUR specific questions about technique and troubleshooting. We'll dig deep into what drives you crazy or just what you'd like better explanations of.
You'll graduate to custom lighting techniques, including best use of portable Speedlights* and reflectors, umbrellas, and softboxes. We'll show why big light is soft light, and how to manage your light condition no matter what you're thrown.
We will edit our shots in real time, learning from each other's favorite techniques and "how-tos" all while improving our output. We'll illuminate options for output and customer proofing. I'll even show you how to increase your sales if you're a budding professional.
We'll shoot various setups including backlit evening shots, black-background portraits, white background portraits, natural backdrops, hyperfocal techniques for landscapes, and everything else you can ask or think up.
