Shooting and Processing for Bold Color (Mickie DeVries)
Limited Capacity seats available

If you love color or want to be more strategic and artful when it comes to using color, this class if for you. This classroom program will start with a discussion about color theory and will reveal how Mickie looks for color contrast and how much planning goes into her color choices before she shoots. Through the use of pullbacks and photo examples, Mickie will take the attendees through her thought process on how she approaches a location with color in mind. She will then transition to the editing portion of the class to show different methods of changing and manipulating colors to match her overall vision for the image. Mickie will demonstrate complete, start-to-finish edits in addition to specific techniques. Mickie will be using a combination of Lightroom and Photoshop for the editing portion.

This indoor boutique program will take place inside a classroom with a projector/screen.

1. Learn about color theory: what colors go together, how to create color contrast, how the mood of the image is affected by color
