Lightroom and Photoshop Special Pre-Conference Day Before Texas School

I hope you’ll join me for a special pre-conference on Saturday, April 27th 2013, 10am – 4pm at the InterContinental Hotel in Dallas, TX. This class is the day before Texas School begins and will not interfere with your regularly scheduled class! Here’s the plan:

10am – 1:00pm Revitalize your workflow with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4.

See how you can save time while managing your photographs from import to export – as well as everything in between. We’ll start by learning how to streamline the import process, create a simple organizational structure, and edit a shoot quickly; all using the Lightroom 4 Library module. Then, we’ll discover the key tools in the Lightroom 4 Develop module to enhance your photographs, correct color and tonal values both globally and locally, customize your color to black and white conversion, and even add special effects such as selective coloring, split toning and vintage looks if appropriate for telling your story. Then we’ll master how and when to move images to Photoshop for further enhancements and discover how to easily create slideshows, photo books, post on social media sites, and create templates for printing.

2:00 – 5:00 Photoshop Techniques for Photographers

In the afternoon session, we’ll learn how Adobe Photoshop can help you refine your images to get superior results faster than ever before. I’ll demonstrate my favorite ways to add creative techniques to enhance your photography and express your own personal style. We’ll discuss compositing techniques, textural overlays and special effects. You’ll learn how to sequence multiple images and composite photographs to create a stunning single image impossible to create in camera. Plus, we’ll look at the smart Object/Filter workflow as well as create actions and droplets to increase your productivity and maximize your efficiency.

The cost is $47 for Texas School Attendees, $97 if not attending Texas School

I’m sorry that I’m not going to be able to teach this summer with Focus on Nature, but I certainly would recommend contacting them if you’re looking for a trip of a lifetime. I made these photographs (and a few thousand more!) last summer.

Video – Moments Alone

Last year I created a short slideshow (The Red Thread) of the images that I took with my mobile phone. I found it to be an enjoyable way to look back at the year and reflect upon the places that I’ve gone, the people I’ve met and the things that I was paying attention to. So, I decided to do it again this year and here it is – Moments Alone. I’m sure that the images will mean more to me than they do to you, but I would encourage you to create a collection of your own images and look at them as a complete body of work for the year to see what you can discover about yourself.

Adobe Photoshop CS6 for Photographers

B&H Photo and Video was kind enough to let me do a live presentation on Photoshop CS6 for their customers when I was in New York last month. Not only that, they recorded it and posted it to their site! Now I know that a 2 hour presentation is going to take a lot of effort to watch if you have a short attention span, but I think it’s worth it if you want to know what’s new in Photoshop CS6 for Photographers! Click here to view the seminar.

Thank you for making this happen Deborah and the B&H team!
