A more personal photography workshop with award winning photographer Tommy White. This High Country guided tour will take you to the lesser known locations. I’ll share the secrets that have taken me 34 years to accumulate. Believe me when I say, “this will be one you won’t forget.” The choice on what to cover is ultimately yours, meaning you can design your day as you wish. If you give me the go ahead, I will most likely take you on a sunrise trip to one of my favorite spots, high above it all. Afterwards, we’ll load your images and unlock the magic in my favorite software. I don’t hold any secrets back, I’m going to give you everything! Your session will be recorded, so you can watch it over and over again, in the comfort of your own home.
My “go to” software is usually Adobe Lightroom CC and Photoshop CC and we can dive as deep into workflow as you like. This can be anything from the basics in Lightroom, an intro to Photoshop, to advanced techniques, including exposure blending and luminosity masking. On a full day adventure, the sky’s the limit! Tell me your vision and what you want to learn and we’ll work up a day just for you!
Areas we will cover include, camera settings, creative composition, technique, the visionary process, the use of filters, post processing and much, much more. An image review is included in each session.
If you’re a representative of a Photography Club, please contact me directly at: 828-773-0369 or by e-mail at: [email protected] I’m more than happy to design a presentation for your group that best fits your need.
First of all, welcome!
If you’re considering a more individualized instruction, Congratulations! You’re taking the next step towards polishing your work and beginning a much more personalized, creative journey in photography.
These sessions are designed specifically to enhance and improve your work efficiency and creativity. We usually start off by taking a look at your current photography and your goals. From there we design a custom package to address all of your needs. I’ll fill in the rest with anything that will partner with your vision.
I am open to covering topics such as fundamentals of photography, to include: Camera settings, Composition, Exposure and Histogram, Hyper-focal distance, RAW, White Balance, Bracketing, High Dynamic Range (HDR), and use of filtration. You’ll learn essential hands-on skills throughout the day that will enhance your image making and give you the tools to address difficult shooting conditions. Afterwards we will also explore options on the computer. How to load, catalog and meta tag your images for maximum exposure. Preparing your images in Adobe Lightroom CC for non-destructive retouching. Then, we’ll explore the power of Adobe Photoshop CC with Exposure blending, Luminosity Masking and Panoramas. We will also touch on image output for digital, print and web use. Last, but not least, we will cover monitor calibration and why it is so important.
We will be using, Lightroom CC, Photoshop CC, Nik Suite and Luminosity Masks(Tony Kuyper) in your session.
