Andrew Rodney, the Digital Dog, is at it again! This time he’s at Vancouver Photo Workshops for a three day “hands-on” workshop called Effective Workflow for Digital Photographers using Lightroom.  This workshop is for digital and film photographers who use a digital post processing workflow. If you’ve never been in Vancouver from  April 30-May 2 that’s a treat all by itself.  Vancouver is one of my favourite places. So what a great combination, a fantastic workshop, at the perfect time in a great place, and with internationally renowned digital image specialist Andrew Rodney.

Topics Include:

* What is Raw, why use it?
* The power of parametric editing and how it differs from pixel editing.
* Proper exposure for best Raw data.
* Color management in Lightroom: selecting the appropriate color spaces, exporting files for various output needs, setting preferences.
* Designing and organizing an image ingestion strategy based on your needs and workflow.
* Color correction using Photoshop versus rendering using Lightroom. When to move from one application to the other (and back).
* Backup strategies for dealing with catalogs used on location and back in the studio.
* Sharpening Workflow from capture to print.
* Using Photoshop for soft proofing, then printing out of Lightroom.

Time is short and just a few slots remain. You only need basic photography knowledge and basic knowledge of Photoshop and Lightroom.  So check this great opportunity out today! We’d love to have your comments back here to this post after you return.  I gotta tell you…. Vancouver in the Spring and Andrew Rodney, that’s a great combination, eh? Oh Canada!
