John Paul Caponigro on Blending Modes in Photoshop

I’m a huge fan of John Paul Caponigro and I just discovered an insightful article of his which explains how to isolate the effects of adjustment layers using blending modes in Photoshop. I would highly recommend that you take the time to check out the article here (The Beauty of Blending Modes), as well as the incredible wealth of information that he has on his site (johnpaulcaponigro.com)

Photography from Japan – Created in Adobe Spark

Earlier this year, I had the opportunity to participate in the CP+ event in Yokohama, Japan. Fortunately, I was able to extend my stay and visit a number of incredible locations in Kyoto and Tokyo.

This weekend, I created a Spark Page of my travels in preparation for my presentation at Photoshop World. I really appreciate how easy it is to make my collection in Lightroom, sync it with my mobile devices, and then layout my story using a beautifully designed template on my mobile device or desktop computer.

Click on the image below to view the images and let me know what you think. Enjoy!

Depending on your internet speed, it might take a few minutes to load because I included a large number of images…

2016 – The White Zone

For the past several years, I’ve created a slideshow as a simple way to look back at my year through the images that I’ve posted using Lightroom mobile to my Instagram account. I find this yearly exercise yields interesting insights about where I am in my life as well as allows me to reflect upon the places that I’ve gone and the experiences that I’ve had. I would strongly encourage you to create a collection of your own images for the year to see the path that you followed in 2016. Wishing you all a happy and healthy 2017, -julieanne

And for those of you that asked, the white zone is for loading and unloading only…   : )

Will You be Attending PhotoPlus in NYC?

I’ll be speaking at Photo Plus Expo in New York on Friday October 21, 2016 from 2pm – 4pm:

Adobe Photoshop + Lightroom + Creative Cloud = Unlimited Creativity

In this action-packed seminar, you’ll discover how you can elevate your creativity and enhance your productivity. Adobe’s Principal Digital Imaging Evangelist, Julieanne Kost, walks through her complete workflow starting with managing, editing, and toning photographs in Lightroom. Then, she’ll move beyond the single image and demonstrate how to enhance and blend images using complex selections, masking and compositing in Photoshop. Finally, she will explore several different publishing options, mobile apps and services including Adobe Portfolio, Behance, Spark, Stock and Creative Sync. You’ll leave with new techniques to take your work further than you thought possible, saving time in the process.

I just found out that you can receive a 20% discount on registration through this page:

Images from Antarctica

2016_09_29_antarctgridI’m back, and I have to admit that I enjoyed my time off immensely – primarily due to the fact that I was able to spend the majority of time working in Photoshop! I know that might seem a bit odd to many of you, but even through I work in Adobe products on a daily basis, I seldom carve out large chunks of time to work on my own photography. Having time to tone, retouch, and publish photographs for my gallery as well as create a body of work from my visit to Antarctica, was certainly a gift. In the next few weeks I hope to share my thought process, techniques, and shortcuts used to tone and enhance the images from Antarctica that I’ve been posting to my Behance and Adobe Portfolio site.

But for today (while I catch up on email and all-things Adobe), here are links to the four galleries that I’ve posted thus far:

Blue Ice

Quiet Moments

Antarctic Reflections

Isostacy

Enjoy!

Adobe’s Fantastic Sabbatical Program!

I’m going to take the next two months to rejuvenate, revive, and replenish my creativity thanks to Adobe’s sabbatical program. I will not be posting to my blog, nor answering comments (or email), but will be working on my own special  projects instead. I will be returning on October 4th and look forward to seeing what has evolved in my absence.

“Creating a Photographic Project from Conception Through Execution”  In-Depth Workshop at Photoshop World

04_11PS World600If you’re going to be attending Photoshop World, Las Vegas, I hope you will join me for an in-depth workshop – Passenger Seat: Creating a Photographic Project from Conception Through Execution. We’ll learn what it takes to define and execute a photographic project. I’ll focus on the techniques and workflows that enabled me to publish my most recent book and body of work: Passenger Seat. You’ll discover how to organize your personal project starting from the initial idea, continuing through planning and executing the shoots, mastering the post-capture workflow, to delivering the project for publication and distribution as a book, slideshow, exhibit, or social media. Defining who you want to be as an artist and what you want to create will give you permission to emerge – allowing discovery and imagination to flourish.

This in-depth workshop will be held from 12-3 on Monday, July 18th 2016. I hope to see you there!
