Vision Driven Workflow
Friday, October 19, 2012
9:30 to 11:30 (2 hours)
A basic understanding of Adobe Lightroom or the image processing program that you normally use.
When take a picture whether the smallest compact camera or the biggest/baddest DSLR, you (should) have an intention. What is the photograph about? But when you download the image, it doesn’t always reflect your intention. In this workshop we’ll discuss a vision-driven workflow, a term and method that adopted from noted photographer and educator, David DuChemin. We’ll use Adobe Photoshop Lightroom (because that’s what the instructor uses), but the principles apply to whatever post-processing software you use. It starts with getting the image to a manageable state on your computer - - importing, selecting and tagging -- then remembering and identifying your intention. Next, in the Develop module we’ll 1) minimize distractions, 2) maximize the mood, and 3) lead the eye. Then finally we’ll output the image to print or file (for web or email).
We’ll take a few images through this whole process so you can see the before and after. You should leave this session with a good understanding of how to accentuate your photographic intent and how to make your images pop.
