An amazing information packed day!
I was once VERY intimidated using Lightroom and Photoshop.
Are you in this place?
Here is an example of a finished version of the 'Old Barn'.
One of the planned projects for Photoshop today.
In this version, the Horses are larger and in the foreground, yet the whole perspective remains true.
We are going to become familiar with the Transform key.
This key helps enlarge or shrink proportionately with the image theme, and keeps the perspective correct.
A most useful tool when you want to change the story of the picture.
This is a second version of the 'Old Barn'.
As you can see I pushed the Horses into the background.
Changing the entire feel of the story board.
Yet it keeps to perspective.
The Transform key is the bomb!!!
This image of the horses and the next of the old barn, are what comprises the project.
This is the old barn.
When I took the picture it was really washed out. I didn't check the setting on my camera and I took a extremely poor image. But, I was able to bring it back to life in Lightroom.
We are going to go over Lightroom so you can begin your Photoshop projects with the best images.
A LOT you can do in Lightroom!! Bring the image back to life all the way through to changing the entire appeal of the image, with some pretty spiffy pre-sets.
I am going to show you where to find them and then load them.
I am amazed with Pre-sets!! Truly !!!
They are the semi-automatic foolproof shortcut, that begins the process of editing your image.
Layering images, using brushes, FX features, blur are to name just a few of the things we cover in this class.
This class is jam packed with a LOT of information.
We are going to work through a LOT of images and at least 2 projects.
Allowing time for working up your images. Making them tell the story you imagine different, from the single image your camera shot!
I have notes from when I took classes that are going home with you as references. If you experience a snag, do not hesitate to contact me, we can work through any issue on google chat, using screen share.
I am not just 'leaving' you to figure out what you might miss.
Photoshop and Lightroom are super amazing tools. !!!
I was once hugely intimidated working in them and knew just the barest of the barest to get a fair image. Looking back, this was silly of me, the programs are so worth getting to know. As I was, you are going to be so glad you have moved forward to using them!
I wouldn't want to miss this workshop! The opportunity to learn in a small class. Being able to have my questions answered. Answered until I understood! To me a hands on approach is a better way of learning.
This is that opportunity!
See you there!
