with Chris Orwig

Video: Welcome

Welcome, my name is Chris Orwig. I'm a photographer, and I'm a teacher. I'm on the faculty at the Brooks Institute in Santa Barbara, California, where we are right now. It's a beautiful morning. Here in this course, we're going to focus in our working on photographs of athletes. What we'll be learning will be applicable to many different types of photographs as well. So what exactly will we be covering this training title? Well, we'll start it off by taking a look at those small details; how can we clean up our photographs. Then we'll into other topics, like how can we enhance an image by working on its color and tone, or sharpening the photograph.
