Photoshop Artist in Action: Tim Grey's Photo Optimization Techniques

with Tim Grey

Video: Welcome

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.

Welcome

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.

In this course I'm going to do exactly that, enabling you to look over my shoulder as I work on some of my favorite images. In the process of exploring adjustments for a variety of images, you'll gain insights into a variety of potential methods for interpreting your photos. I'll talk about my reasons for capturing the image and the decisions that went into that capture, and also talk about my intent for the photo. I'll then take you step by step through the process of working toward that goal. 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 and how to make decisions in the process.

So let's get started.
