Image Enhancement: Beyond the Basics
with Will Van Beckum
July 24 - July 27, 2013

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.

Creating a stunning image always starts in our imagination and then gets captured by our camera. What happens next is often a disappointment because the image that appears on our computer screen looks nothing like what we saw in our imagination. If our image enhancement skills are not developed we fall into a frustrating cycle of more disappointment.

This four-day workshop with image processing expert Will Van Beckum lifts you out of the abyss. Using Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop, with a boost from NIK Software, Will teaches us the skills to process images into reflections of what we truly envisioned when we clicked the shutter.

Will leads us beyond the organizing Library module in Lightroom to expand and fine-tune our knowledge and skills in the Develop module. We perfect our ability to creatively adjust our images by covering local adjustments, white balance, curves, split toning, sharpening, noise reduction, edge vignetting, using the Quick Develop panel, and much more.

We use Photoshop to take advantage of advanced selection tools, powerful retouching, and panorama merging. And we explore the NIK Software applications that allow us to take control of our black-and-white conversions and HDR merges, as we apply creative filters to add drama to our images.

This workshop with Will brings more fun to your photography as you perfect your image processing skills. These newfound techniques enable you to comfortably navigate the post-production side of the world of image making and bring your imagination to life.
