fxphd – Digital Photography PHT203 (2 Classes)
There are a lot of aspects and approaches to photography, but many of them end up in Photoshop. Professional photographer Tim Wheeler and our own Mike Seymour will show how to shoot high-end professional photographs and then post them in Photoshop. Half of the classes will be in the field or in the studio with Tim and the other half Mike will be tackling the work in Photoshop with help from fxphd professor Rose Draper.
While most of the course will use Photoshop, other image processing tools and plugins will be used. The course aims to cover grading, HDR, tone mapping, panoramas, and more. SInce this is a 200 level course, it will assume a base level of Photoshop knowledge. Access to a digital stills camera and Photoshop is highly recommended. Post-grads will be encouraged to post their work for review. We have some exciting shoots planned, including a shoot with Jeff Heusser at the neon graveyard in Las Vegas where we pit Canon against Nikon.
