Photoshop Artist in Action: Tim Grey's Abandoned Farmhouse

with Tim Grey

Video: Welcome

(music playing) Hello. I'm Tim Grey. I've spent most of my adult life helping photographers improve their photographic images, both in the initial capture and also through post-processing with a variety of tools. When I spend time with photographers in a hands-on environment, one of the most frequent requests is for me to simply think out loud while optimizing an image. So those in attendance can get a better sense of how I make decisions about an image, and how I approach various adjustments in a real world scenario. I'm therefore delighted to offer this video training course, where you'll be able to look over my shoulder as I work on one of my favorite images. In this case, we'll work with an image I captured in the Palouse region of eastern Washington state.

When I spend time with photographers in a hands-on environment, one of the most frequent requests is for me to simply think out loud while optimizing an image.

I'm therefore delighted to offer this video training course, where you'll be able to look over my shoulder as I work on one of my favorite images. In this case, we'll work with an image I captured in the Palouse region of eastern Washington state.

The subject is an abandoned farmhouse. And I'll guide you through the selection of the image, to determine which specific image deserves special attention. We'll then take a look at the process of converting the raw capture in Photoshop, where we'll take a look at the basic adjustments, apply a tone curve, fine tune sharpening and noise reduction settings, correct lens distortion, and then finalize the raw conversion. With the image converted and opened in Photoshop, we'll then take a look at some of the overall fine tuning adjustments, including cropping and straightening, refining tone and color, and applying some dodging and burning. We'll then explore a possible creative interpretation of the photo. This will involve converting the image to black and white, adding a color tint, and applying a vignette.

I think you'll find this course to be informative and entertaining, and I believe it will help you gain a better understanding of how to approach an image to produce a truly optimized photograph. Let's get started.
