From Field to Finished: Seven Workshop-Style Case Studies is an in-depth video tutorial that follows the creation of seven photographs from the concept in the field through the final photo processing steps. Although this tutorial features photos from Zion National Park, the lessons can be applied to any scenic or wild place.
Through this video tutorial, you will learn about these topics from two seasoned nature photographers, Sarah Marino and Ron Coscorrosa:
Photographing in diverse conditions, including the challenging Zion Narrows, in the backcountry, and in winter.
Making creative choices, working through compositions in the field, and then assessing your options when you are ready to select a photo for processing.
Technical decisions for a variety of scenarios, including aperture, shutter speed, ISO, and focusing.
Processing techniques that enhance a photo while keeping it grounded in reality. These videos include start-to-finish examples of processing photographs using Adobe Lightroom alone, Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop combined, and Photoshop alone.
Photo processing topics include processing a RAW file; adjusting exposure, contrast, and colors; emphasizing and de-emphasizing elements with a photo; enhancing natural lighting conditions; using processing techniques to optimize a composition; applying the Orton effect; using luminosity masks; and an easy exposure blend.
