CLUB MEETING - Guest Speaker Betty Wiley, "Color Toning in Lightroom and Photoshop 2021" (7:30 PM EDT)
MVCC is pleased to bring back Betty Wiley! Betty's presentation will focus on various techniques you can use in Lightroom and Adobe Camera Raw when working with color in your images. Included will be coverage of the new Color Grading panel which allows adjustment of color tints in the highlights, mid-tones, and shadows, as well as luminance in those areas. Also covered will be use of the temperature and tint slides, HSL panel, and the calibration panel when working with color, the latter being one of the most powerful features in LR and ACR (once you see what it can do, you'll be using it regularly to enhance and work with color in your images).
CLUB MEETING - Guest Speaker Betty Wiley "Understanding and Mastering Layers and Masks in Photoshop" (7:30 PM EDT)
Layers and masks are powerful features in Photoshop and can really be described as the heart and soul of Photoshop. This presentation is designed to demystify layers and masks in Photoshop and you will see the many ways that these tools can be used in your editing workflow. Layers and masks are really quite simple to use once you understand the basics. Once you understand how to use layers and masks, you can easily do composite images, use powerful editing features such as levels and curves, and edit non-destructively and selectively, use blend modes and so much more. Among the topics that will be covered are (time permitting): Different types of layers in Photoshop Use of layers and masks including how and when to use them Editing non-destructively, using layers How to work with masks Inverting masks and why this is such a powerful tool Feathering and modifying masks Using blend modes with layers
