Topic: Color in Digital Photography
blank
blank
Getting prints that match the image on your monitor
blank
blank
 
blank
blank
Wouldn't it be nice to get prints that consistently deliver
blank
blank
the expected color, contrast and tonality every time? Join
blank
blank
host Joe Brady as he explores the journey that your digital
blank
blank
image file takes from Capture to Edit to Print.
blank
blank
 
blank
blank
Understanding the changes, equipment limitations,
blank
blank
technical hurdles and how color profiles and color
blank
blank
spaces fit into this challenge is confusing to many
blank
blank
photographers. With a bit guidance, some real world
blank
blank
explanations and a bit of help from some color
blank
blank
management gear, Joe will explore the journey of an
blank
blank
image from the moment you capture it in your camera
blank
blank
until you send it out for print.
blank
blank
 
blank
blank
Starting right when you press the shutter on your
blank
blank
camera, putting the right tools in place to ensure
blank
blank
great color is an important first step toward a great print.
blank
blank
 
blank
blank
Understanding monitors, monitor profiling, color spaces and
blank
blank
bit depth let's you know that the image you are editing on
blank
blank
your display accurately reflects the data in your image file.
blank
blank
 
blank
blank
Lastly, creating and applying printer profiles, soft-proofing
blank
blank
and rendering intents guides your final edit to a print
blank
blank
that reflects the true color and beauty of your image -
blank
blank
whether printed on your own inkjet printer or when
blank
blank
sending out to a lab.
blank
blank
 
blank
blank
Spend some time with Joe and he'll help to clear up
blank
blank
some color mysteries and have fun while doing it! Let's
blank
blank
get you started on the road to consistent and accurate
blank
blank
prints you will be proud to display.

Topic: Mother Nature's Intent:
blank
blank
Principles of Designing a Photograph
blank
blank
 
blank
blank
Line, texture, shape, pattern and color are all elements
blank
blank
of design which abound in Mother Nature. We explore
blank
blank
the meanings of these design elements and how they
blank
blank
influence not only our compositional choices but also
blank
blank
how they influence our viewing audience. The
blank
blank
psychology that is revealed here will surprise you.

Topic: Flashes of Inspiration: Creative Use of
blank
blank
Ambient and Artificial Light
blank
blank
 
blank
blank
The 'math' is what often confuses many flash shooters
blank
blank
and subsequently causes many shooters to give up
blank
blank
quickly on the creative and combined use of flash
blank
blank
and ambient light. This presentation does NOT talk
blank
blank
about math but approaches the use of flash
blank
blank
with a few simple questions and once you hear
blank
blank
these questions, you will "get it".
blank
blank
It really will be that simple!

Topic: Mining Images:

Finding Gold Amongst the Mundane
blank
blank
 
blank
blank
One of the greatest challenges all of us face on a
blank
blank
weekly if not a daily basis, is finding "new and
blank
blank
exciting" images but where do we go to find a constant
blank
blank
supply? The answer will surprise and no doubt challenge
blank
blank
you as well but one thing is sure: there is no shortage of
blank
blank
subject matter if you are willing to step outside
blank
blank
of your comfort zone.
