Make your photos of architectural exteriors even more beautiful. Learn to enhance lighting, tone, and color; composite multiple frames; and remove distracting elements.
- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Richard Klein, and welcome to Enhancing Architectural Exteriors. Here, we take a close look at the post process focused on creating maximum image quality beginning with the raw file to final output. In this course, we'll look at using our raw converter to do all the heavy lifting for tonal and color adjustments, lens and perspective correction, noise reduction and adjustment layers. Next, we jump into Photoshop for compositing, adding blue to the sky and retouching and of the problems we find. We see how to make the most of overcast skies and finally create an action to size the image for specific output using two path sharpening to get everything the file has to offer.
The shots we are working with are from a professional shoot on medium format at two beautiful locations. There is even a companion course about the live shoot, so between the two you can see the entire process from location scout to post. So if your interest is to get more out of your raw captures, to learn about the conventions and methods of architectural post, to get the utmost image quality, or to get inside a workflow a seasoned pro uses in professional practice, then this course is for you. Now let's get started with Enhancing Architectural Exteriors.
