Mac OS Photography
Learn professional techniques from photographer and Adobe trainer, Martin Perhiniak, as he enhances Objects, Portraits and People in this advanced 36-tutorial course exploring the state-of-the-art features of Lightroom 4…
First things first... You've got to get your shots into Lightroom, right? That's why Martin begins this course with a short, refresher section on photo file formats and organization strategies used in the current versions of both Lightroom and Adobe Camera Raw.
Breathing "life" into still life shots is a photographic art. In the next section, Martin demonstrates some of the essential techniques he employs to enhance his still life object shots. From there, he tackles the unique challenges of portrait photography. You'll learn about the amazing power built directly into Lightroom’s tools as Martin instructs you how to harness Lightroom's toolbox to make fast, accurate corrections and enhancements to your portraits.
Next Martin steps things up by focussing his attention on indoor studio and outdoor photography. You’ll learn to utilize Lightroom’s new automated capture and synchronization abilities and you’ll also get some of his favorite Lightroom recipes for boosting color and lighting!
Martin ties it all together with a section demonstrating how well Lightroom plays with other apps. You'll see how to integrate Lightroom 4 with external image editors and sister products like Adobe Photoshop. You'll also learn how to keep your work projects synchronized to save time and energy without having to redo your efforts in external applications!
