Creative Portraits with Jonathan Vaines

A number of processes to alter reality of a Portrait image using Adobe Photoshop

Are you ready to be challenged, and use the skills you have learnt? Do you want to try new ideas, get creative and have fun making images, if so Jonathan’s new workshops might offer you something a bit different.

Level:  Advanced:

Who should attend:The sessions are aimed at those with a good understanding of Photoshop and layers.

What will you learn:

In the first two sessions we will cover some of the creative ways which will alter reality to create a very different look to a portrait image using Adobe Photoshop.

In the first two 90-minute workshops:

  • You will see the use of Camera RAW to prepare your image
  • Skin blemishes and tones will be removed whilst retaining detail using frequency separation
  • Lift the image with Photoshops “Apply Image” to extract detail
  • Manipulate facial features
  • Freeze and Thaw pixels to contain your alterations
  • Move the light around your portrait
  • Colour your images with Colour Grading and look Up Tables
  • Sharpen selectively to make your images “pop”

Between sessions you will be tasked to produce your own Creative Portrait

  • In the third session Jonathan will share your results and you will receive constructive feedback on your submissions after learning in the previous sessions.
  • Two of your images will then be displayed in the Exhibition website along with other delegates attending the workshop.
  • Delivered over Zoom
  • You will have access to a YouTube Channel for the recording of the session which is just for your personal use

In Addition

Jonathan will run 2 additional 'Clinics’ on Fridays 17 & 24 November at 12:30 to 1pm

This is an opportunity, if you choose to attend,

  • to ask questions,
  • share any problems you have encountered with your images,
  • ask Jonathans advice on a particular process or
  • simply sit and absorb the information on offer from Jonathan as he helps the other attendees
