Announcing “Introduction to Photo Compositing” with Julieanne Kost on Lynda.com

I’m excited to announce my new Introduction to Compositing course on Lynda.com! If you’re interested in learning how to create new visual narratives with the power of photo compositing, then this course is for you. Here is a more detailed description:

By choosing elements that work together to form a cohesive message, Julieanne Kost is able to create a composite image that’s more powerful than its individual parts. In this course, she shares the fundamental creative and technical concepts behind photo compositing, from creating diptychs that juxtapose images in separate “frames,” to assembling multiple exposures and strengthening visual impact with textural information. With these simple yet powerful techniques, Julieanne shows how to pull together different imagery and create new, unified visual narratives.

• Creating diptychs in Lightroom and Photoshop

• Using layers and masking to blend photographs

When Do I Convert  RAW files to DNG?

Since people often ask me when I convert my files to DNG, I will admit that I don’t convert until after I am finished editing the images (including rating, keywording and developing them).  Why? Because, although I could convert on import, I throw away a fair amount of images in my editing process, and I figure that there’s no sense in wasting the time to convert files that I’m going to throw away.

Of course you don’t have to wait until the end of your workflow to convert your images, I just find it satisfying to convert as a final step. Plus, this way I know that any image that is a DNG has made it through my entire workflow.

Below are two videos with more information about DNG:
