Are you 100% confident that your color correction is all that it could
be? Do you often work on photos with the feeling that you just know
there’s a better photograph in there somewhere, but you’re just not
sure how to achieve it?
Then you need this class! This intensive one-day session on raw image
tonal and color correction is based on George Jardine’s Image
Correction Master Class video series. This is a hands-on class, so you
should plan to bring a laptop with Lightroom 5 and/or Adobe Photoshop
to get the most out of the class. We will be using Adobe Lightroom,
but those using Adobe Camera Raw will find that the controls and
techniques are identical. Please join us!
The Image Correction Master Class is not intended to be an exhaustive
look at every feature in the Lightroom Develop module. But rather this
class will focus on giving you the background you need in the core
image correction controls to make great corrections. (We will cover
the Basic Tone controls, the Tone Curve, and the HSL panel.) If we
have time we will touch on the Detail panel, with a discussion of
Sharpening and Noise Reduction.
Class will be Saturday, November 23, at the Lone Tree Civic Center.
Class fee is $69.95. Click here to register.
Lunch will be provided.
I first learned about “Surreal Dreamscapes” and “Mirror Dreamscapes” in a workshop in New Brunswick taught by Freeman Patterson and André Gallant. The workshop was pivotal to my further photographic development because it reinforced the idea that not ALL photography has to be “realistic”. Since then, I’ve explored quite a few ways of altering the renditions of my subjects–at first with film and, later, with digital files.
My presentation will describe and, on a basic level, demonstrate, these two techniques learned in the workshop. I will also distribute detailed handouts with instructions for making these dreamscapes.
A “Surreal Dreamscape” (now often called an “Ortonization” after Michael Orton, a Canadian photographer who first used the technique) involves combining an in-focus image and a defocused image of the same subject, both shot from the same vantage point.
“Mirror Dreamscapes”, in the digital age, involve copying the original image onto another layer and flipping it horizontally or vertically atop the original image. Then, manipulation of the Blending Modes and/or Opacity slider produces an image in which one half of the image “mirrors” the other half.

If you are looking to improve and/or show off your photographic skills, you should come visit and join our club. We are a friendly group that meets twice a month, once for an educational presentation and the second time for exhibition and competition.
Participation is always the best way to learn and grow and the Lone Tree Photo Club offers opportunities for both in a casual, non-threatening environment.
Please feel free to come visit and see if our Club might be a good place for you to join. We welcome you!
Review our meeting calendar, we meet on the 1st and 3rd Mondays at 7:00 p.m. You will find us downstairs (way in the back) of the Lone Tree Civic Center.
