Creative Live Photoshop Week

Written by Daniel Gregory

I am jazzed to be a part of CreativeoLive’s Photoshop Week in May. I have been a huge fan of CreativeLive from the early days and can remember talking with Chase about what a great model it was for teaching and sharing information. If you aren’t familiar with CreativeLive, you can watch the training for free when it is being broadcast live, but if you miss it or want to watch it again, you have to purchase the course. It is a great way to make sure that on some level everyone has access to the classes.

For Photoshop Week, I am excited to be teaching on two of my favorite topics. I am teaching on class on digital workflows and the second course is a printing class. The digital workflow class is about all the ways you can organize and store your digital files. Unlike a lot of other workflows classes, we are not going to showcase the best or right workflow. In this class, rather than focusing on a single workflow, we are going to cover the tools, options, and features that are in the Adobe suite to help you stay organized with a consistent, clear and repeatable workflow that works just for you.

The printing class is all about making that fine-art print. There are a ton the things that you need to consider and think about when printing. From color management to paper to tips and tricks in Lightroom and Photoshop, we are going to cover everything you need to know to get from the screen to the wall. I hope that you can join me in May to learn all about Photoshop and Lightroom. The classes run from May 15-20, 2017 and you can get more information here.

The power of the photographic interview

The power of the photographic interview

One of my favorite exercises I use to teach photography and learn about my own work is called the interview project. This process involves you doing enough research about a photographer you are inspired by or want to learn from and then create a set of 10 to 20 interview questions that you would want to use to interview them. In some cases, you might be lucky and be able to use those questions to interview the photographer. Still, sometimes they might no longer be alive. Either way, part of the process is to answer those questions as if you were the photographer. This will help you get some insights into how you might approach the work. You then use those same questions, slightly modified to fit your work, and then interview yourself.
The podcast this week walks you through the process and so possible insights you might be able to get with a simple little exercise that gives you big rewards in understanding your own process and work.

The value of small changes you can make even in a year of crazy to boost your photography enjoyment

The value of small changes you can make even in a year of crazy to boost your photography enjoyment

Sometimes it is the little things that can make all the difference. In a photograph, it might be a shift in POV or depth of frame. In our printing, it might be the right paper selection. No matter what you are working on a small change can be a big deal. However, as the days seemingly run together in this year of COVID, I got to thinking about how easy it is to miss the small changes since everything and every day seem to blend. 

This week’s podcast takes a look at how small changes can impact your photography and work. Hopefully, they can inspire you to try out the same or think about what small changes you will carry forward even when things shift out of our 2020 way of being.
