My husband and I are professional photographers and we would love to share our program on the Distinctive Black and White Character Portraits that we have become known for.

During the program we will touch on the following topics

• Composition

• Lighting

• Editing (Lightroom and Photoshop)

• Marketing

We present several example images and show how they evolve from the raw camera file to the final print. During this segment we touch on composition, lighting, painting with light in Photoshop, and introduce the editing process we use to produce this distinctive look.

We capture some images with a live shooting demo. During this segment we touch on lighting, composition, and posing.

The class will pick some of the captured images and go over the workflow from start to finish in Lightroom and Photoshop. During this segment we show how we use Lightroom to prepare the image for Photoshop. In Photoshop we show the editing steps we take to achieve our character portrait look. We show how we paint with light in Photoshop to enhance the impact of the image, talk about print presentation, and how all of this relates to print competition and how it improves your daily work.

Attendeeʼs will walk away with more creative ideas to offer their customers by creating a distinctive heirloom art pieces.
