Get ready for a game-changer! Whether you are controlling for contrast in your exposures themselves, and/or in post-processing, this fun, informative and interactive session will help you learn the tricks and techniques necessary to make your images go from drab to fab!

Learn techniques that can be accomplished in-the-field as well as during post-processing that will amaze you. Explore before-and-after examples and teach you how you can do so with your own images simply and effectively. These critical components of powerful images can all be significantly enhanced by the proper use of contrast.

The Power of Contrast:  
•   Did you know you can actually manipulate your audience to follow a path in your images in a certain order and sequence?
•   Are you aware that contrast plays a critically important role in whether your images are experienced in a pleasing way, or with strain?
•   Have you mastered the secret of making an image come to life and “pop?”
•   Need ideas to improve the “resting place” for your viewer’s eye as they navigate your image? 

This is NOT Introduction to Photoshop. Topics include layers, simple masking, adjustment brushes in Adobe Camera Raw (Lightroom works very similarly). You may choose to share a computer with a friend/spouse or just come and take notes/follow along.
