PRESENTERS AND THEIR PROGRAMS
Program 4 – Dec 5, 2012
Photoshop/Elements - Layers & Beyond and HDR Basics
Our guest speaker will be Layers are the foundation of Photoshop – whether you use Elements or CS. I will review the four types of layers, why they are important and what they do. I will then demonstrate several projects working with multiple layers including using shapes, type, filters and textures. I will also demonstrate converting to black and white, sepia, and spot color on B&W. I will also show you how to blur the background of an image utilizing selection tools and masking.
Then we will move on to HDR (High Dynamic Range) Photography. Our eyes can see a much greater dynamic range of tones in a scene than our digital cameras can capture. I will demonstrate how to shoot for HDR by bracketing your images, and then how to process the images using the popular programs, Photomatix Pro by HDRsoft and Nik’s HDR Efex Pro. I will also show you how to get the HDR “look” using Topaz Adjust.
The presentation will be prefaced with an overview of post-processing software.
