In the Spotlight
by Colby McLemore
Tues. Sep 12, 7:30 - 9:00
Hold on to your hats because we’ll be covering a lot of material quickly. If you are new to photography, fasten your seat belts because you’ll get a speedy introduction. If you are an intermediate or advanced photographer, don’t blink or you’ll miss something. Don’t worry, I won’t let us crash because I’ll give you a handout to keep you between the lines.
We’ll take a quick stop at the light to cover equipment, then speed off to discuss preparation, and then take a quick turn discussing how to photograph the exterior of a property. Then we’ll zoom in the other direction and go inside, talking about all the considerations when photographing the interior. We’ll go over exact settings and a workflow that will be great place to start. We won’t go four wheeling on the rough roads of more complex situations but will instead keep on the main road to allow us to speed along. The ride is not over! We’ll finally shift to an even faster gear as we discuss photo editing specifically for architecture. We’ll talk about RAW images; HDR; lens correction; layers; blending modes like lighten, darken, color, and saturation; and sharpening, to name just a few subjects we’ll be flying by.
