Adobe Photoshop: Image Enhancement Workflow
with Lee Varis
June 22 - June 27, 2014

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.

►►SORRY, THIS WORKSHOP WILL NOT BE RUNNING. However, we are offering another Photoshop workshop with Josh Withers and an Image Enhancement with Nik Software workshop with Tony Corbell.

Ansel Adams once said that the photographic negative was like the score for a piece of music, and the print was like the performance. Now in the computer age, Lee shows you how to achieve the best possible performance of your own digital score.

In this eye-opening workshop you learn how to find the "inner image" hiding inside the raw capture and reveal the full range of expression contained in the RGB file through a completely new approach to Adobe Photoshop. Daily field sessions in Santa Fe allow participants the opportunity to create images in different genres: landscape, still life, and portraiture. We follow up our photography sessions with a unique image-enhancement workflow in The Workshops state-of-the-art digital lab.

Lee's method utilizes the grayscale channels of the three main color workspaces to reshape the tone and contrast in ways that exceed normal Photoshop protocol. You learn the best ways to prepare your images for print—and are given the opportunity to print them. Other covered topics include basic curve correction, white point and black point, raw file enhancement techniques, channel blending techniques, luminosity blending, special RGB color effects, lighting in layers, and single- and multi-shot HDR (without the grunge look).

With a new set of image-enhancement skills, you are able to take your photography and Photoshop techniques way beyond what you thought possible.
