The Full Schedule by Track - Day One (Thurs. May 31st)

Photography

Photography

  • Wildlife photography is one of the great blessings of photography! But this isn’t your dad’s wildlife photography. Although our camera gear has advanced taking away many of the behind camera challenges, there are so many gear options these days it may be hard to decide what to use, all the while finding the critters is becoming more and more of a challenge. In this class Moose will walk you through how to use the right gear and how to successfully be in the right place at the right time.
  • Learn what it takes to create images that demand attention and wow your viewer. Impact is the core element of memorable imagery. In this lecture Lindsay will explain what approaches you can take to add impact to your work. You will learn to develop concepts, plan thematic shoots, and infuse impact into your sessions. Go beyond the basics - take your images from good, to great, to award-winning.
  • As a former model turned photographer, Hurley knows what it’s like to be in front of and behind the lens. Drawing from his past experience as a model, he’s carefully honed his craft of photographing headshots. In this session, Peter will highlight his 10 favorite tips to ensure success during a headshot session and share his insight into direction during a portrait shoot in order to pull the most out of your subject.
  • Come join photographer and top-selling author Roberto Valenzuela for a class on how to create invisible posing. Learn how it will positively affect your prospective client’s decision to hire you. This is a concept where you use posing techniques that follow the natural flow of the human body to create poses that look 100% effortless but beautiful! When the pose is well done, it becomes invisible. People won’t notice it, instead they will notice the beauty of the overall photograph without the pose being a source of distraction.
Photoshop Effects

Photoshop Effects

In this class, Rick will show you some of his favorite start-to-finish images, sharing behind-the-scenes stories as well as highlights from his latest book: Evolution of an Image—a behind-the-scenes look at the creative photographic process.

  • Join Glyn as he shows you how to use Photoshop for adding light into your images. From simple spotlights, light beams and sun flares to special effects there’s no kit required for fantastic lighting with Photoshop.
  • Styling your photos is a key step in the finishing process. Most people have a “style” and a consistency to their work, and the more tools you know to get that style the better your results can be. One of the latest trends to hit photo styling are the Color Grading and Color Lookup Tables (LUTS) that are included in Photoshop. We’ll take a look at how we can quickly add these styles to your photos, as well as create some new ones that are just a few clicks away.

    It’s hard to put a price tag on years of memories you captured in photos or the hours of video you took that still brings a smile to your face. Ask yourself, what are my photos worth? If you’re a professional photographer; someone who sold a print or charged for service, this question gets easier. How much would I lose if I lost everything on my hard drive. You get my point; we need a bulletproof backup plan, hardware that is safe, simple and expandable, and last, easy configurable software to manage it all.

  • This special panel, created just for students who attend Photoshop World, gives students straight talk and real world advice from some of the most successful pro photographers in our industry.
