Have you ever seen film negatives exposed in a museum? Or printed on a book? Negatives are to be developed for the final photograph and lots of factors need to be taken into consideration during the development process to bring out the best from them.
In the digital environment similar decisions still need to be made with our RAW files and that’s what this experience is all about.
During this workshop we will discuss the different moods we can create from a single RAW file through light, color and texture in the digital darkroom. To get there I’ll use the most iconic analogue film rolls as references to understand the different looks they could bring out from the same scene and translate that into the digital darkroom.
We will use Adobe Lightroom’s levels, curves, dynamic range (if this does not ring any bells, don’t worry, we’ll go through it quickly) and specially we will work with the multiple possibilities for color and black and white.
As you already know how to use Lightroom as a tool, now you’ll learn to interpret the information stored by your camera and create that distinctive look that will make everyone recognise your photos.
This is not a Lightroom workshop actually, you could use your learning in any other editing software available. This is a workshop to understand and learn the potential of our RAW files while searching for beauty. Hope to see you soon!
