Join me and Rick Walker in Tucson, Arizona for an infrared photography master class that goes far beyond the basics and teaches you the skills to truly master infrared processing. This workshop includes field photography sessions in the Tucson area, where we will photograph subjects that are ideal for infrared capture, plus in-depth classroom time to learn how to work with digital infrared images.
Rick and I have spent the last year developing a unique processing workflow for infrared digital images using only Adobe Lightroom Classic and, to a lesser extent, Adobe Photoshop. In this class, you’ll learn our secrets for processing raw infrared images exclusively in Lightroom/ACR, including channel-swapping and color infrared.
What You’ll Learn
How to set up ACR/Lightroom with a custom camera preset for your own infrared converted camera
How to adjust white balance on digital infrared images using ACR/Lightroom Classic
How to adjust infrared images from cameras with different spectra (590-720nm)
How to correct hot-spots in infrared images
How to perform channel-swapping directly in ACR/Lr
How to create the “blue-sky” effect on raw digital infrared images directly in ACR/Lr
How to create dramatic monochrome infrared images in Lightroom and using Silver Efex Pro (Nik Collection by DXO).
How to fix common artifacts including banding and noise
How to create unique creative infrared styles using plug-in software
Field and classroom instruction with a student-teacher ratio not to exceed 5:1
Custom camera profile for processing infrared images in ACR/Lr that is specific to your personal camera that includes our unique channel-swapping settings
Join me in La Jolla, California to immerse yourself in the art of bird photography. This exclusive instructional photo safari is limited to six (6) participants for a personal experience that you can’t get from the big tours. I offer “ask me anything” instruction during the safari to ensure you’re getting the best quality images. Because of the small group size, I’m able to offer a more intimate instructional style that allows each participant to get the knowledge they need to succeed.
Winter is the breeding season for the pelicans and cormorants in southern California, so we’ll be able to capture them in their colorful breeding plumage.
This workshop is perfect for intermediate to advanced photographers who wish to learn how to capture stunning images of birds in flight. We will have the opportunity to photograph numerous species, including pelicans, cormorants, gulls, and terns. We will also likely encounter sea lions and other wildlife on the beaches, and have the opportunity to get some nice sunsets and environmental shots.
Each day, we will download and process our images together as a group, get critiques, and learn new techniques to make your photos stand out. I will work with you to capture and process the best possible images into beautiful finished products.
