Great photographs don’t just happen. They are the result of skill at every stage of the photographic workflow process. It starts with perfect light and a proper capture, but that is only the beginning. Every image must go through post-production, including selection, color management, adjustments and retouching and of course, publication (digitally or in print). You need to execute every task across your workflow with skill to be successful. Learn the perfect portrait workflow from photography, lighting and workflow guru, Jared Platt.
In this workshop you will experience the entire process of portrait photography: lighting, capture, importing, selecting, organizing, adjusting, retouching, sharing and printing your images. Your teacher, Jared Platt will direct you through every stage of the process and teach you the very best practices in lighting, exposing and editing your portraits.
On your first day in the workshop, you will learn the techniques for perfect exposures, accurate color and brilliant lighting with both Speedlites and studio lights. You will have the opportunity to light and photograph professional models as your portrait subjects with Jared as your personal instructor. Later in the day, you will begin the process of assessing your images, organizing and selecting them in preparation for day two. Jared will guide you through this process in Adobe Lightroom and teach you the very best way to import, view, select, keyword, and organize your images.
Day 1 Sunset expedition:
As a bonus, Jared will lead the group on a sunset expedition to teach you the art of realistic HDR and getting the most challenging exposures even when the latitude is out of control.
On the second day of your workshop experience you will dive right into the process of adjusting and retouching your images in Lightroom and Photoshop. You will be working on your images from day one as Jared demonstrates the most powerful and efficient ways to edit your portraits, landscapes and even HDRs. Then Jared will lead you through the process of sharing your images to the world in a snap, whether it is to your close friends and family or through mass social media channels, you will be a master of digitally sharing your photos. And finally, you will learn how to create beautiful, color accurate prints with ease. Each student will leave with prefect professional prints of their work.
Jared believes the best way to learn is hands on. So prepare to work! You will be learning through short demonstrations and intensive hands on learning. Bring your camera and your computer and be prepared to make some amazing images with Jared Platt as your mentor and guide through the entire photographic process.
