In Photoshop CS5: Landscape Photography, Ben Long outlines a full, shooting-to-output workflow geared specifically toward the needs of landscape photographers, with a special emphasis on composition, exposure enhancement, and retouching. This course also covers converting to black and white, using high-dynamic range (HDR) imaging techniques to capture an image that’s closer to what your eye sees, and preparing images for large-format printing. Learn to bring back the impact of the original scene with some simple post-processing in Photoshop. Exercise files are included with the course.
If you are a premium subscriber to the lynda Online Training Library, you have access to the accompanying exercise files. A good way to handle these is to download them to a folder on your desktop, like I have here. You will find a separate subfolder for each chapter. Whenever you see me open a new file in a movie, and there is an accompanying exercise file available for that movie, you will see a yellow overlay on your screen, which indicates the location of that file. There are two ways you can go through this course. You can follow in sequence, and when you do that, you will be ensured that as you move through an image as it progresses through each lesson, you will always have the most up-to-date version.
But if you want to jump in in the middle and go in a nonlinear fashion, then you need to be sure that within the chapter folder you open the appropriate subfolder. So, for example, if you're doing the Basic Tonal Correction lesson in Chapter 02, you want to use this file. We only have subfolders for lessons that involve raw files, and this has to do with the way that edits are saved with raw files, and you are going to learn all about that when we talk about RAW. Sometimes, though, you might find that you will get just as much, or even more value, by following along with your own images. This is fine.
If you find that we are talking about a problem that you've already seen in one of your own images, grab that image, open up, and follow along with that. You will probably find the techniques we're discussing move with no problem into your own images.
