Tutorial 12, Chapter 3 - Singer Island Sunrise

This week we do some more brush work on beefing up the colours in our photograph and improve the structure of the picture by strengthening the leading lines. We also pre-announce our upcoming competition and show off last week's entries to the Creativity Exercise assignment. And boy oh boy what a lot of pictures that was!

Tutorial 12, Chapter 1 - Singer Island Sunrise

Starting a new tutorial and getting back in the saddle for the new year. This week we look at another collection of images and talk about how I chose the target image in Adobe Bridge then open and export it in Adobe Camera Raw. We also talk about Leading Lines in our composition segment, Martin Bailey's competition and a couple of new podcasts.

Tutorial 4, Chapter 3 - Chair-o-plane

Today we have part three, the final part of our chair-o-plane image. Today we look at more dodging and burning, lightening shadows, tweaking saturation and brightness and adding a vignette. I also correct a mistake from last week's show where I talked about selecting highlights. Todays show is longer and wafflier than ever! Sorry about that, I'll try and get my running time more under control in future. I need some kind of stopwatch while I'm recording. :)

Tutorial 4, Chapter 2 - Chair-o-plane

Today we finally get started on editing our latest image, Chair-o-plane, in photoshop. We start by combining elements of 2 different images to get the shot we intended. Then we work on bringing levels closer together by dimming highlights and selectively brightening and adding contrast. This is the second chapter of a three part tutorial.
