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:

Photo Romania Festival

I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who worked so hard to make my experience at Photo Romania so memorable. I know that making a festival run smoothly is no small task and you all accomplished it with agility and grace. With every little detail taken care of, I was able to thoroughly  enjoy the event, meet a whole new group of friends and bring back wonderful memories and photographs  of not only Cluj-Napoca but also Bucharest, Brasov, and Sighisoara.

For now, here are a few of the images that I have posted via Instagram, I’m sure that I’ll be using the rest of my images in future tips, tricks, and tutorials!

Lightroom and Photoshop – a Full Day of Training in Texas!

The wonderful folks at Texas School have invited me to give a full day seminar on Lightroom and Photoshop on Saturday April 26, 2014 from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM at the InterContinental Hotel and Conference Center in Dallas TX. Here are more detailed descriptions of topics:

9am – 12pm – Lightroom 5 – Insider Secrets!

Join Adobe’s Principal Evangelist, Julieanne Kost as she demonstrates the astounding capabilities of Lightroom’s Develop module. Julieanne will reveal tools that will help you enhance, refine and add stylistic effects to your images using both global and local non-destructive image adjustments. You will learn how to increase your productivity by creating custom default processing settings, using camera and lens profiles, and saving presets in order to to quickly apply these effects to multiple images. If you’re looking for increased efficiency in your post processing workflow, then this is a seminar you can’t afford to miss! Plus, Julieanne will share her top 10 tipis and tricks for automating Lightroom across all of the modules – from import to delivery of final files for clients.

1pm – 4pm – Photoshop CC – The Creative Composite

Somewhere between the decisive moment and moving pictures lies the world of digital compositing – where multiple images captured at different times layer together to create a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. In this seminar you will learn what’s needed to create a successful composite and how to reinforce the visual narrative using the right components. Julieanne will demonstrate  flexible and productive ways to organize, construct and manage multiple images in a single document using layers, masking, blend modes, opacity, layer groups, clipping masks, knockout  effects, layer styles and advanced blending options.

Photoshop CC: The Creative Composite at Santa Fe Workshops July 13 – July 18, 2014

I’m excited to be returning to the fabulous Santa Fe Workshops this year to teach a 5 day workshop on Photoshop CC: The Creative Composite!

2014_04_02aSFW

Course Description: Somewhere between the decisive moment of still photography and the time compression offered by moving pictures lies the world of digital compositing—a place where multiple images captured at different times are layered together to create a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. During our five days together, Julieanne helps you discover how to transform concepts and ideas into images. You master the tools used in compositing, including layers and masking, blend modes, adjustment layers, the properties panel, opacity, and clipping paths. Then you take these concepts to the next level using Smart Objects and Smart Filters, making complex selections using channels and the pen tool, and creating knockout layer effects using advanced blending options, clipping masks, Layer Groups, and the Refine Edge command.

Mornings are dedicated to instruction, with time set aside in the afternoon for you to work on your own images. This is the chance for you to reinforce your understanding of techniques applicable to your photography and engage in individual critique sessions. Using the most flexible, non-destructive editing process imaginable, Julieanne combines creative inspiration with image-manipulation techniques to help you rediscover your enthusiasm and unleash your potential.

I hope you will be able to join us! Click here for more information about the class, and to view the entire Santa Fe Workshops calendar, click here.

An Interview with Tom Hogarty on The Grid

On this episode of The Grid, Scott and Matt are joined by Tom Hogarty from Adobe, who gave us a sneak peek of processing RAW photos on a tablet! Using a prototype version of a possibly upcoming app on his iPad 2, he demonstrated the ability to edit RAW photos using Lightroom-like capabilities such as Highlights, Shadows, Exposure, Contrast, and more. He also discussed cloud synchronization with the edits made on tablets back to your computer.”

And here is a very interesting followup article by Jonny Evans.
