Select and watch a video tutorial. 60 seconds later, you’ve got answers. It’s very powerful. It’s another great reason to be an NAPP member.

Precons at Photoshop World XVII start today.

We’re coblogging again. Presenters will try and make one post a day of a highlight.

I haven’t even started my Epson Print Academy Precon (today from 1-5 with Rodney and Schewe) yet and I’ve had a highlight. RC Concepcion, Matt Koslowski, Corey Barker and I were discussing shooting for HDR for their demo during their Precon session. RC had scouted locations and remarked that crowds might be a problem. So I offered an idea. Shoot 3 shots for each bracketed exposure (three each for low, medium and high). First merge the moving people out. Then use the remaining three merges for the HDR merge. This stuff gets you thinking – in new ways. I love it! I’ll be do this in my workshop in Palms Springs next week. Someone will let you know how it goes. When they do you’ll find a link here.

You can see what other presenters share each day by accessing these links.

Here’s a list of everyone who coblogged last year. Check back for more links each day.

Lightroom & Photoshop

March 14, 2009 | 2 Comments |


During the Epson Print Academy today, Jeff Schewe does a great job detailing how to set up an optimum relationship between Lightroom and Photoshop.

Use LR (or ACR) for parametric edits.
Use Photoshop for processing pixels.
The lion’s share of image processing happens during Raw conversion,
So, what kinds of things should you favor doing in Photoshop?
Here’s Schewe’s list.

Retouching

Industrial Strength Noise Reduction

Creative Sharpening / Blurring

FX

Compositing

Epson Print Academy – Live – What It’s Like

November 16, 2008 | Comments Off on Epson Print Academy – Live – What It’s Like |

Today, the Epson Print Academy is in Washington DC at the Hilton Crystal Palace.

What’s the Epson Print Academy like? Jack Reznicki hosts Track One. Jeff Schewe is ring leader for Andrew Rodney, Greg Gorman, Mac Holbert, and me in Track Two. Both tracks feature live sessions and informative videos. In track two senior product manager Mark Radogna (below) talks about the new HDR ink technologies. Henry Wilhelm talks about key issues in print permanence – see the full length here. There’s an Expo area. Jeff Greene of Microsoft makes a short presentation on Capture One 4 and Expression Media 2. Mike Wong of On One makes a short presentation on their plug-ins like Mask Pro and Focal Point. And there’s a Gallery; all the prints are printed with Epson’s new HDR ink.

Check back later this evening for afternoon additions.
