SIGN UP FOR GPP2013 UPDATES
This workshop begins with a discussion of the form of landscape we will be shooting on this day workshop: natural landscapes (e.g. the desert). We will be concentrating on those factors that contribute towards the creation of a great shot, i.e. composition, lighting, perspective, focal point, and so on.
In addition to these aesthetic concerns, we will also discuss some of the common technical problems that can arise when out in the field; e.g. determining an optimum exposure, avoiding blown highlights, controlling depth of field, subject movement, perspective, and so on. During the shooting sessions you will be free to choose your subject matter, but there will also be a number of creative briefs that you can draw upon if you get stuck for inspiration. Following this discussion we will head out into the field to shoot your first set of images.
On the second day of the workshop we will return to work through a number of post-production techniques you can use to enhance your images. This will include a detailed discussion of how best to use Camera RAW to convert your RAW files, through to a discussion of their subsequent post-production in Photoshop.
Note: Please keep in mind that day one will involve a long drive to the desert (around 1.5 hours each way) but it will be worth it.
You have a basic understanding of the basic image adjustment features of Photoshop and can apply basic painting techniques to your work. You can open, save and retrieve images. You are looking to consolidate your understanding, increase your repertoire of tools and learn some more creative techniques.
