The Digital Group is designed to teach the techniques of digital imaging and what makes digital manipulation different from film based photography. Although the group is focused on the digital medium it can also be of interest to those using the traditional film medium. Through the use of the computer as a tool, all photographers can explore new ways of improving their images and discover unique techniques to manipulate the photographic process.
This month I’ll take a look at a “step-by-step” procedure to corrections that should be applied to all photos from camera original to finished image.
From preliminary cropping & processing to targeted levels and colour correction to retouching and cloning of unwanted objects and final sharpening I’ll go through a standard “process” that all images should go through.
Looking forward to seeing you all for this educational session.
Making Abstract Photographs: From original conception through execution I’ll delve into putting together all the necessary components to create "abstract" photographs.
