- Since the very beginning of photography, photographers have been in pursuit of capturing clearer and sharper photographs. Well in this course we are going to continue that pursuit as we look at how we can use post-production tools in order to reduce noise and to sharpen our photographs. Welcome, my name is Chris Orwig. I'll be your host and guide as we take a deep-dive look into how we can sharpen and create better photographs. And our journey will begin by looking at two different raw tools. We can work with Adobe Camera Raw and Lightroom.
We'll examine how we can work with sliders, which will allow us to reduce noise and to sharpen our images. We'll also look at some selective adjustment tools, which will give us the ability to sharpen specific areas of our photographs. And we'll examine how we can use some really powerful Photoshop filters, like how we can use unsharp-mask and smart sharping to sharpen larger areas of our pictures. Look at how we can work with masking which will allow us to paint these adjustments into specific areas. And I'll even highlight a few advanced techniques like, high-pass sharpening and another technique that will allow us to limit the sharpening just to the edges of our photographs.
Well, we will be covering all of these topics and more, so without further delay, let's begin.
