Retouching Digital Photographs Seminar
Tuesday 14 June 2011
This seminar highlights an important workflow distinction between the processing of digital captures and the post processing of digital images. Both phases of the workflow have different aims and objectives, and require different skills and techniques. While processing is scene referred, retouching is output referred. What this means, and the stages, processes and tools involved in professional image editing are illustrated through real world case studies, where the editing outcomes focus on a creative interpretation of the subject. Topics include:
• What are the essential steps in colour correcting an image?
• How to avoid inheriting costly processing mistakes?
• What are memory colours and why do they cause editing errors?
• Why CMYK in an RGB world?
• When should I work in the LAB colour mode?
• When should I not use Photoshop’s Curves?
• Prioritizing image editing tools
• Comparing color balance, HSL, and selective color tools
• Creating dodging and burning masks that work as expected
• Accurately colour managing images
• Smoothing and harmonizing skin tones
• Matching colour and density across multiple images
