Learn how to handle digital images after the photograph has been captured. Designed for those who have a basic working knowledge of digital photography, this workshop is packed with information, lectures and demonstrations that cover many aspects of software, cameras and printers. Topics include digital workflow, proper use of the histogram, the pros and cons of working with RAW files, the many useful features of Lightroom, Bridge and Photoshop, how to make contact sheets and more. Participants must bring an external hard drive containing raw photographic files to work with.
Students use digital cameras, employ a digital workflow with Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop, and learn digital printmaking techniques.
Students receive in-class lectures and demonstrations, hands-on guidance and the opportunity to review digital workflow using their own catalog of images. Students use the digital workflow to create digital prints during the week. Studio activities are complemented by short field trips to create new images.
