WHAT: Course outline

Hour 1:

The why of editing: Participants will be shown raw images and also the edited versions along with a short story about the capture and why the edit brought out our vision. Different viewpoints will be shared about how far one can take editing before it becomes digital art.

Mobile editing: Participants will be shown how to use the free google SNAPSEED app, and do basic edits.

Work time: work time will be given to edit images and ask questions about the program to the guides and other participants. Jordan and I will be on hand to walk around and help as well as suggest edits.

Hour 2:

Why go Desktop?: We will switch over and show a basic setup and import using Lightroom and also compare and contrast the much larger program vs using your mobile device to edit. Pros and cons will be discussed.

Basic interface and edit: We will go through a basic edit and the interface so that you can see if this program is right for you and your needs. Chris will also go through an image and intentionally complexify the light to add depth and drama to the image.
