March 13th, 2012 - Corey Hilz: Image Editing Concepts and Techniques
Processing our photos is an important step towards making our images look their best. In this workshop Corey Hilz will demonstrate his workflow for making image adjustments. He'll discuss how he evaluates a photo and decides what adjustments to make. These adjustments will range from global to local and Corey will explain how he chooses which parts of an image to target with selective adjustments. This workshop will not focus on how to use a particular image editing application. Instead the emphasis will be placed on assessing what adjustments will benefit the image. It's important to focus on the changes that will bring out the best in the subject. What you can do to highlight, emphasize, or otherwise promote the subject or key elements in a scene? This isn't always achieved making changes to the subject itself. It may be changes to the background or secondary elements that help put attention on the subject. You'll be able to take the concepts discussed in the workshop and apply them using the tools available in your image editing application. Feel free to bring your laptop, after the presentation there will be time for you to practice with your own photos and Corey will be available to answer questions.
