Pixels and Paws – Navigating Photoshop for Studio Pet Photographers
-
BELINDA RICHARDS


Description: They drool, shed hair and sometimes leave a surprise on our backdrops, but they still steal our hearts every time. However, the mess our furry clients make can lead to some not so desirable additions to our beautiful portraits. Join Belinda for her Pixels and Paws workshop to learn how she quickly cleans up all the mess and polishes that pooch to perfection! Tailored specifically for studio settings, this workshop delves into the intricate world of post-processing techniques, focusing on the specifics required to turn an ordinary pet portrait into a stunning work of art. Whether you're a seasoned pet photographer looking to refine your editing skills or a novice eager to unlock the secrets of Photoshop, Pixels and Paws promises to provide practical insights and actionable tips. Join us as we embark on a journey to unleash the full potential of studio pet photography through the magic of Photoshop. What you will learn: Participants will learn how to streamline their workflow and achieve consistent, polished results with ease, optimizing their time behind the lens. Delve deeper into the intricacies of masking as Belinda demonstrates how to use various tools to separate your subject from your background allowing for more refined edits to both your subject and setting. Once we have mastered this Belinda will then demonstrate her favourite techniques to smooth out and clean up drool and fur ridden backdrops. Trust me you will never sit there healing and cloning out fur again! Then we will look at refining the subject using the art of dodging and burning and colour correction as well as gaining valuable insights into techniques tailored specifically for different coloured dog fur. This will allow attendees to add depth and dimension to their portraits, ensuring that their subjects truly command attention. Ever wondered what all the blending modes mean? This will be covered and then used practically to show you how you can incorporate textures and overlays to elevate backdrop aesthetics to a luxurious standard. Additionally, Belinda will guide participants through the effective use of the crop tool and geometry function, empowering them to craft compositions that are both visually striking and emotionally resonant. Prior Knowledge: A basic understanding of Adobe Photoshop is beneficial but not necessary. BYO: Laptop & tablet if you would like to follow along.
