General Information

The photograph is taken from the roof garden of the Grand Hotel Duomo, the reason for choosing the hotel, making it extremely convenient with no travel on the workshop. The Photoshop will be held in the hotel conference room. All rooms are single occupancy but can be altered if required. The Photoshop is on your own laptop computers. I have my own computer to show each step first, projected onto a screen in the conference room. Notes are written after each step to build up your documentation of the whole process. TK Actions are required to be installed in Photoshop. In case of bad weather, (or the tower finally decides to fall over), I will bring a copy of my own original files for this image for every student as a backup plan. This way we all have good material to work on during the workshop. The workshop is in English language only.

Included: 4 nights hotel & breakfast, 3 full days tuition. Excluded: Travel to and from hotel, meals not mentioned. Bring: camera with 35 or 50 mm lens & tripod, laptop with Photoshop, notebook and pen.

Arrive

Arrive Day Before Workshop: Photograph at dawn next day between 5am – 6am. The photograph is taken at dawn on the first day of the workshop. The workshop will also cover exposure. Understanding how the camera changes the tones we see. Teach you a fast and methodical process to make sure you have captured the complete tonal range of the scene. How to expose for rich shadow detail using the camera histogram as your guide. Rich tones can only be achieved in the final photograph, if they are captured in the camera. Rich tones can not be created in the final image if they are not in the original raw file. We cover capturing the base image, technical assets and artistic assets for Photoshop. The most common mistake is the belief Photoshop can correct filled in shadows, for quality, this must be solved at the camera. The workshop will teach you why and how to get rich shadow information.

Day One

Goal: Create a perfect single layered file, as if straight out of the camera. The first step is to create the perfect “raw” file that we could not achieve in a single shot from the camera; bringing all our assets together to create a perfect starting point. This means editing down our images, compositing those images together and dropping in a new sky. The first day therefore covers editing, creating large format documents, sharpening and cleaning, aligning exposures in Photoshop and processes to check alignment. Groups for storing backup layers and masking for compositing. The result must be the most perfect flattened layer with tonal detail everywhere in the image, not showing any Photoshop technique such as halos around buildings, bad joins etc. We also cover what makes good landscape photography, so we have set targets to aim for in the final image.

Day Two

Goal: Create a technically perfect optical illusion with super rich detail. Part two of creating an image concentrates on contrast and illusion. First, controlling the global contrast to give the image a solid foundation and punch, then increasing local contrast to give the image detail, texture and richness, what I call “super readability.” Over emphasizing the detail to become super rich, so that when areas are made darker they retain beautiful subtle detail everywhere. Second, creating the illusion of spatial depth and real object form. Techniques covered include blending modes for contrast, separating black and white from color information to create dodge and burn layers. Setting the overall color feel. At the end of the day, the image must be perfect in Photoshop technique and a perfect technical image, showing sharp detail and tonality everywhere with a great sense of depth and form.

Day Three

Goal: Create an artistic image with light, mood and atmosphere. Today, concentrates on two areas, making the picture work cohesively and changing the picture artistically so it becomes more a story of light and expression than a factual recording of the scene. This is the last phase because we need the technically perfect as a foundation first. Now we can be far more bold, free, artistic and expressive. Today concentrates on all the techniques to push down the overall image first using black layers, then bringing back up the details where we want the eye to concentrate on with mask painting. Fine tuning details with white layers and techniques to be expressive, enhancing the feeling of light mood and drama, setting the color mood. The most enjoyable part of the whole process because it not working with the detail like a surgeon but working freely like a painter.
