Photoshop: Understanding Layers And Masks with Jean Miele

Adobe Photoshop offers an impressive set of tools for photographers. The most useful are layers, adjustment layers, and layer masks. These are the keys to nondestructive Photoshop “digital darkroom” work: creating composite images and collages; advanced contrast control; expert sharpening; advanced “burning and dodging,” and perfect retouching. Miele will teach you how to use these tools to control every aspect of your images, and learn how relying on layers gives you the power to change your mind at any point (even after an image has been closed and reopened) - with no loss in image quality.

 Community Event 622

Cuba Exposed with Vincent Versace

I have come to believe that I was put on this earth to tell the truth and see the pretty…to walk all over the planet and allow myself to be taken by the moment…to record truth and moments of abandon with a camera.

For many years I have loved making pictures in Cuba, never the politics, but to record the incredible spirit and beauty of the people. My trips were made with that one goal in mind. In my early trips I could not have known that change would come so soon and that my images have captured that moment in time. I have made it a point to photograph the past that is present today. Through the course of that journey I have found the path not walked by everyone, the places that not everyone goes to but the places of Cuba we all dream of seeing and the people we hope to meet. This community presentation will share the experiences.

 FOTOshoot 221

Get Out of Program! Using Manual Exposure Mode/Spot Metering Pattern

with George Schaub

Become familiar with the creative benefits of taking personal control of your exposures as well as seeing light and color with a “camera eye.” Today’s digital cameras are impressive when it comes to auto exposure, using “manual” modes are a way to create personal image interpretations: the bonus is you gain a greater appreciation of light around you and see with a “camera eye.” We discuss highlight and shadow control; how exposure effects tonality and color contrast. You apply these techniques on a field trip using spot metering, choosing selective over- and underexposure, identifying key highlight and shadow areas in the image, and bracketing for image interpretation.
