David Saffir instructor
SCV Center for Photography, Santa Clarita – Saturday, February 26th – 1pm to 5pm – only $79!!
NEWS FLASH! NEW SILVER EFEX PRO 2 IS RELEASED. WE WILL BE USING THIS UPDATE IN CLASS. TONS OF NEW FEATURES!
In the digital world, a strong color image is the foundation of top-quality black and white prints. In this workshop, we’ll start with editing color images. We’ll be using Nik Viveza 2 and Nik Color Efex Pro in Photoshop to create a custom, pro-level finish for each color photograph – preparing it for life as a top-quality Black and White Print!
Color Efex Pro has dozens of presets and special effects and Viveza facilitates precision color and tonal editing.
Once the color image is dialed-in for conversion to black and white, we’ll move on to Silver Efex Pro 2 – which is like an all-you-can-eat buffet when it comes to options creating your final black and white image. You can even apply pre-sets that match the appearance of different types of black and white film.
All are easy to use and the software gives real-time previews as you go. Special effects and toning are a snap. Imagine the possibilities!
We’ll also look at different paper/media types and your choices in creating the look you want. You don’t have to be an expert in Photoshop or Lightroom to benefit from this class. You don’t even need a laptop (but it’s nice to have one!)
We’ll even have a BRAND NEW Epson 4900 pro printer on hand, and we’ll be making prints during the class! We will review printing methods that give the best results on desktop inkjet printers and some of their larger cousins.
Join us for a fun and informative afternoon that’s sure to take your photography skills to the next level! You can download a 15 day trial version at http://www.niksoftware.com if you do not own any of the Nik Software products.
SPECIAL NOTE: We will be giving away a free copy of Nik Silver Efex Pro – currently worth $179 – and a free 8×10 silver halide print from Digital Silver Imaging!
