This talk is intended to expand your ideas in post processing images.
Every book on digital photography discusses post processing. Almost all of them take a very conservative approach with warnings such as overdoing saturation, contrast or sharpening. My view is that these warnings should be viewed as challenges. What can you achieve by throwing the rules out the window! I will illustrate an examples of the unsharp mask at 500% and equally outrageous color adjustments.
The talk will be less about the technical details and more about when
and why to use unusual approaches. I will also mention surrealism. I see
it as a way to have some fun while avoiding ordinary images. In fact, I
have attempted to make all of my examples somewhat surreal. I will use
my images based on the ECC scavenger hunt. The problems in creating
images for this hunt will be familiar to many of the club members. I
don’t expect agreement on the images but I believe that my approach may give you some interesting ideas. I will have a handout on false color
methods which includes work that I have not seen published elsewhere.
PS - Come early (6:30pm) to socialize!!!!
