Join Front Range Wildlife Photographers’ own Peter Batty for a workshop on Image Blending. This technique uses a combination of Lightroom and Photoshop to combine multiple images into one stunning shot that conveys a sense of movement and progression.
Peter will be teaching this technique using bird imagery but it can be applied to a variety of different subjects including but not limited to athletes or sports, astral bodies such as the moon, fireworks, and many more.
For this workshop you will need the latest version of Lightroom and the full version of Adobe Photoshop. You will need a strong working knowledge of Lightroom.
If your Photoshop knowledge is limited, that's okay. Peter will teach you what you need to know in Photoshop to achieve this look.
Peter will start by showing you how to extract still images from high definition video in Lightroom. He will then import the stills into Photoshop where he will be demonstrating how he uses layers and masks to achieve stunning blended images.
Peter will be providing a Lightroom project if you would like to bring your laptop and work along with him. However, if you'd like you can simply observe Peter and the other attendees as they move through the process.
