Overview of my Photoshop Workflow
This video is an overview of my Photoshop workflow. I explain how I use adjustment layers and masking to make precise adjustments to photographs.
Don't put off learning Photoshop because you think it's to hard, or too complex! It's easier than you think, it's time you unlocked Photoshop's potential for yourself.
Using just a few fundamental tools, I'll show you how to take control of your photographs and produce museum quality results. It's the same tools and workflow I've used to produce files and prints for some of the biggest names in photography, that have been displayed in the Smithsonian, galleries throughout the country, numerous books and publications, and over a hundred thousand prints prints for for tens of thousands of photographers. In this seminar, I'll help you understand the fundamentals of photographic control and how to use those fundamentals to produce your vision so that you can create results that go beyond your current workflow.
Rich Seiling’s passion for capturing light and beauty with photography has led him on a series of adventures that have shaped his vision and view of the craft. From a stint at The Ansel Adams Gallery in Yosemite as an assistant curator, to his pioneering work in digital printmaking, founding of a leading fine art printing studio, and 22 years living in and photographing the Yosemite region of the Sierra Nevada, Rich has deeply explored the vision and craft of photography while continuing to express his own vision.
Combining his darkroom knowledge with digital tools led to a process for making color prints of museum quality that pushed the process to new heights. His reputation for making vibrant yet realistic digital prints allowed him to help photographers like Galen Rowell, Jack Dykinga, Robert Glenn Ketchum, and many others, make the transition to digital fine art printing. With his team at West Coast Imaging, he has helped produce numerous museum shows, supplied prints for leading galleries, and done prepress for art books from publishers like Taschen and Houghton Mifflin.
His simple yet powerful Photoshop workflow, tested on tens of thousands of prints at WCI, is in use by many top professionals, and has been taught to countless students across the country through workshops and lectures.
