1:30 PM – 4:00PM
So you have taken your flower photographs, but do you still feel there is a bit more to be done and you are not quite sure about the next step? Bring an image and your computer and join Teri as we work through some of the possibilities available to put the finishing touches on your work of art. (Or Teri will provide you with a copy of the image she will be using for demonstration).
We will discuss the considerations for your image such as increasing/decreasing contrast and saturation, taking your image black and white, eliminating distracting elements, simplifying backgrounds and more.
Teri will also cover:
- Why and how to clean up an image.
- Evaluating and potentially removing distracting elements.
- Extracting and modifying a background.
- Using Photoshop and/or Topaz Impressions to enhance an image.
- Using textures and mat options to complete and image.
If you don’t have DxO Nik Collection or Topaz Impressions, you might consider downloading a trial version. A Wacom tablet is recommended. Don’t want to bring your computer? Just come and take notes!
Meet the Speaker:
Contrary to most photographers’ history that she hears, Teri Whittaker did not grow up with a camera in her hands. She was well into adulthood when, out of desire to accomplish a specific goal, she started researching cameras and lenses that would help her accomplish her mission.
Teri is a wife, a mom, and a mia (her grandmother name as she did not want to be called grandma). She and her family have had the opportunity to live in places such as Alaska and Africa, and to travel much of the United States.
Teri is a homebody that loves, loves, loves Thai food.
