Out Of the Dark, with Lightroom
- Masterclass hosted by Ron Conigliaro -
As a photographer and professional musician, I draw a lot of similarities between the two when producing finished photos. In music, we consider the type of guitar, percussive instrumentation, vocal parts, etc. - everything to effectively convey a mood for the piece. I take this approach with my photography, it's not likely that I'll process photos exactly the same unless they are part of a set. I try to "find the music" in my photos and utilize the tools we have to best set the mood and highlight the story of my subjects.
Please join me in this session to discover the Adobe Lightroom (LrC) product and the tools it offers for editing your work. We will primarily focus on the "Develop" model internals and additionally display integration with external products like Portrait Pro, Photoshop, Topaz, etc. If you're not familiar with Lightroom, you will learn how simple it can be to quickly edit your shots into award winning photos. If you already have a working knowledge of Lightroom, I think you can pick up some tricks and editing techniques. I additionally hope I can inspire you into stepping outside of your comfort zone and finding the music in your photos.
