This course provides in-depth training on Camera Raw 7, the Photoshop CS6 component that enables photographers to open and manipulate raw format images. Raw images are minimally processed in the camera; they're effectively the exact data recorded by the camera's sensor. Author Chris Orwig shows you how to control a raw image's appearance—exposure, shadow and highlight detail, color balance, and sharpness—with far more precision than is possible with JPEG images. The course also introduces the new workflow procedures and technical concepts and issues associated with raw content, so that photographers can best leverage this powerful format.
Throughout this course you are going to learn nearly everything that you need to know about Adobe Camera Raw. Yet before we get into all of the details of working with Camera Raw, what I want to do here is share with you a real-world workflow because I believe there is no better way to understand Adobe Camera Raw. And to understand how we can use this tool by taking a look at a real scenario where we put a few images through the Adobe Camera Raw workflow. Here, you can see I'm in the Chapter 3 folder, I will go ahead and press the Spacebar key to take this image to this full screen view.
I had the privilege of photographing an Ironman World Champion Chris Lieto for a cover story of a publication. They wanted to print this picture on a full page, they wanted it in black-and-white. Now when I pulled up the file I realized I had completely missed my exposure. So we'll explore how we can use Camera Raw in order to correct exposure and also in order to bring out some contrast and details and grit so that the photograph looks like this. We will also work on another picture, this one here, where my exposure was a bit better, but where still, this photograph needs some help.
So here in this chapter we will focus in on this real-world scenario and we'll put these images through a workflow so that you can really understand why Adobe Camera Raw matters and how we can start to use it. And then after this chapter we will really dig into the details of how we can use all of the different controls and sliders and adjustments in a number of different scenarios. All right, well let's go ahead and take a look at how we can start to work on these two images.
