The techniques of this workshop include soft proofing, output sharpening, and localized contrast adjustments. Information will also be provided on:
These techniques and information will be applied to images submitted by workshop participants.
As part of the workshop, each participant will receive an 8.5"x11" copy of their original print and a 13"x19" copy of the image after application of the techniques. In addition, a copy of the adjusted image will be provided to each attendee who brings a storage device (such as a “thumb” drive) for transfer of the electronic image from my laptop. The original image should be submitted to the instructor prior to the workshop. Instructions for doing so will be provided to each attendee upon enrollment.
This full-day workshop (with a one-hour lunch break) is limited to 12 lucky attendees. Register today.
Your Instructor: David L. Robertson
I have been interested in photography since college, where I learned how to develop my own negatives and to print black and white images. My photographs tend to reflect strong graphical elements and simplicity; regardless of subject matter. They have been described by NYC photographer and friend—Jay Maisel—as reflecting solitude, without loneliness. I have previously taught more than a dozen workshops on Lightroom, Photoshop, printing and B&W conversion at Viewpoint and at various photography groups in the Sacramento region. I have also had several solo and group exhibits of my photographs, including a solo exhibit at the Pence Gallery in Davis (January 2008), a group exhibit at Viewpoint (May 2009), and a two-person exhibit in Roseville (May 2010). Another two-person exhibit is scheduled for the Grants Pass Museum of Art in Oregon (October 2011).
