Lightroom and Photoshop retouching workflow.
In the past few releases in the Creative Cloud, Lightroom and Photoshop have seen workflow improvements for Photographers. This session, hosted by a re-touching expert, will look in detail at the new tools and explain how to improve your post production/re-touching workflows, to create even more beautiful images.
Wacom tablets with Photoshop and Lightroom.
A Wacom tablet can be essential to the modern way of editing photographs and working with your images. The Wacom tablet offers lots of control, elegance and precision when working with your photographs and allow you to spend less time in post production and more time behind the camera. This talk will explain how the Wacom tablets can be configured and used, to allow you to work faster with more precision in your Photoshop and Lightroom workflow.
What is the Creative Cloud Photography Plan?
The Adobe Photography Plan includes more than just Lightroom and Photoshop. In fact, it has been designed to include all the tools required to survive in the modern photographic world. This talk will demonstrate and break down what is included as part of the Adobe Photography Plan and explain how it works, as well as some of the new features that are available in Lightroom and Photoshop and new opportunities for both the Professional and Amateur photographer.
Raising your game using Creative Cloud and Behance.
Online portfolios, mobile devices and social networks are a great way to show case your work as a photographer, as well as engaging your audience and building your photographic brand. The Adobe Photography Plan contains all of the tools you need to make your images look great, as well as including modern ways of showing off your work, either on the web, using social networks or on mobile devices. The Behance platform is part of the Adobe Photography Plan, and a great way to show off your work, as well as an way to engage the existing community of image makers of all disciplines. This session will walk you through how the system works, how to place content in Behance from Photoshop and Lightroom, and how you can use it to raise your profile as a photographer or digital artist.
Lightroom and Lightroom Mobile.
Lightroom mobile is a new addition to the Adobe Photography Plan and is available free for both the iPhone and the iPad. Mobile viewing, as well as editing your photographs, without being tied to the desktop version of Lightroom is enabling photographers to work in very different ways. This talk will walk you through how to set up and configure Lightroom mobile, as well as how it can be used as part of your editing workflow.
3D Printing in Photoshop for Photographers.
3D Printing is taking the world by storm, and this technology is opening up new creative ideas for Photographers. In early 2014 Photoshop gained the ability to create/print 3D objects using a variety of printers, materials and services. This talk will walk you through 3D printing in Photoshop with examples of how Photographers can embrace it in their work.
Colour Management – Perfecting your workflow with DataColor
This session is brought in conjunction with Adobe and Datacolor and will provide an end to end solution for colour management. We will explain how colour management can easily be incorporated into your workflow from ‘in the camera’, to the screen and finishing at the printer and transform your workflow forever. This session will ensure that you are able to make perfect looking prints every time.
New features in Photoshop for Photographers
In the Creative Cloud, Lightroom and Photoshop updates have both seen the addition of new tools for Photographers. This session will look in detail at the new tools and explain how to improve your post production/re-touching, to create even more beautiful images. Photo editing and retouching techniques can always be improved by embracing new innovation that is available in software.
Video Editing in Photoshop.
We all have cameras that are able to create stunning photographs, and many can now record stunning HD quality video too. This session will show how you can import your video clips into Photoshop and use your existing Photoshop skills to edit and create a compelling short film.
Beauty Retouching and workflow with Karl Taylor.
In this one hour presentation Karl Taylor shares his workflow and techniques for beauty retouching. In particular he will share the importance of burn and dodge techniques as well as high frequency and low frequency layers for skin repair work. He will also describe the importance of evaluating your image and identifying what is important and what is not.
The Hasselblad ShootLDN event was an amazing success for everyone last year and we think that this year will be even better. The whole event is free, so why not come down and see what’s going on. There will be lots of people to talk with, including an amazing range of talented photographers, Wacom, Data Color and of course representatives from Adobe will be there as well.
