I’m really excited to announce that my new class: The Art of Photoshop Compositing is now live on www.lynda.com!
“Join Julieanne Kost as she walks you through her creative thought process and explains how she transforms concepts and raw images into entirely new works of art using Adobe Photoshop. Discover how to select the images you need to create a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. Master the tools used in compositing, including adjustment layers, masking, blending, and Smart Objects, so that the technology doesn’t get in the way of expressing your creative vision. Learn how to adjust scale and perspective and manipulate texture and focus to help viewers temporarily suspend their disbelief long enough to enter your world.”
- What makes a good composite?
- Refining your story
- Composing using the basic principles of design
- Customizing your Photoshop workspace
- Preparing elements from your source images
- Adjusting color, tone, balance, and perspective
- Mastering the Pen tool
- Unifying with texture, focus, leading lines, and structure
I look forward to hearing your feedback!

“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.

For the past 5 years, Kevin Kubota has been hosting “Photographer’s Ignite” at WPPI.

I can tell you, it was an educational and informative experience! In case you weren’t able to attend in person, Kevin has posted video of all of the speakers here.

I’m excited to be returning to the fabulous Santa Fe Workshops this year to teach a 4 day workshop on Photoshop and The Creative Composite!
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 four 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.

Thank you so much to everyone who organized, attended and participated in PhotoWorld Asia 2011. I can honestly say that your hospitality was above and beyond anything I have ever experienced while traveling and I am grateful for all of the new friendships that I have made as a result of visiting your beautiful country!
The seminars at PhotoWorld Asia were all outstanding. I had a wonderful time learning lighting and posing from the incredible Hanson Fong and was thrilled to be able to speak to such an engaged group of photographers who, at the end of a full day of Lightroom and Photoshop instruction, still wanted more!
Triston Yeo and Stuart Dee, thank you for sharing your beautiful images - it was a pleasure getting to know you and seeing you in action capturing visual moments of our travels through your photography.
Special thanks goes to everyone who worked so hard behind the scenes to make this event such a success: Mrs. Huang , Mr. Ka Lito and Mr. Nappi, Ms. Lalana, Dr. Amado Castro, Mr. Inumerable, Mr. Ruwen Verdaguer as well as the numerous volunteers needed to make everything happen behind the scenes. You all work tirelessly to help the photographic community of the Philippines and it shows in the quality of the work of your photographers.
And for all of you that joined us for the live shoot on Tuesday, I hope that you had as much fun (and learned as much as I did) while photographing the models at the fashion/body paint photo shoot.
I hope to post some images soon…
