I just thought I'd post some updates on workshops I have going on this summer and fall. If you need to get your digital workflow dialed in these workshops with myself, Nevada Wier, George Jardine and photoshop guru Jerry Courvoisier are a great deal and will be coming to a city near you this year.
START to FINISH WORKFLOW FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS
2 Day Hands On Workshop with Michael Clark - in a city near you!
Lightroom is the essential software of choice for digital photographers on both Mac and Windows. This unique hands-on application experience is an intensive two-day workshop focused on Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3.0, in which participants learn to download, organize, manage, develop, and present digital photography using their own laptops. Led by Michael Clark, a master teacher of digital imaging, this workshop ensures a smooth transition to the digital workflow.
We begin with an introductory overview of Lightroom, which starts with covering the database components, catalog files, previews, the metadata structure, and the steps for setting up application preferences specific to your personal workflow requirements. Topics include digital camera setup, choosing appropriate file formats for image capture, efficiently downloading images from the camera or a hard drive, sorting, rating, editing, global tone and color corrections, critical local corrections, input and output sharpening, presenting slideshows, and printing photographic images using Lightroom from start to finish.
Michael emphasizes using Lightroom to its fullest potential by generating time-saving keywords and metadata searches, presets, and templates. Once images are processed, participants learn how to produce slideshows and web sites within Lightroom. We also study slide presentations and look at ways to integrate Photoshop or Elements for further image processing if desired.
Michael shares his recommendations and strategies for making clear decisions based on how Lightroom benefits each participant’s personal approach and workflow needs. Under Michael’s expert guidance, participants come to see why Lightroom puts deliberate focus on the word “speed". This program allows photographers to spend less time in front of their computers and more time behind their cameras.
The Lightroom tutorial exercises provided supply a broad assortment of images to work on, so you can continue to revisit the exercises when you finish the workshop. Jerry Courvoisier's book Lessons in DSLR Workflow with Lightroom and Photoshop, provided to workshop participants, is a brilliant companion to this workshop. Of course Michael's e-book Adobe Photoshop Lightroom: A Professional Photographer's Workflow, is also available for purchase for workshop participants.
