Pastel Workhop with Jonathan Vaines

Create Painterly Images in Camera and with Processing Techniques

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 two new workshops might offer you something a bit different.

This one Pastel Work and the second Creative Blur are bookable now.

Level: Intermediate/ Advanced:

Who should attend:

The sessions are aimed at those with an good understanding of Photoshop and layers.

What will you learn:

  • Many call it Pastel and some call it Soft but creating these painterly, light and bright images requires a technique both at the time of image capture and in post processing.
  • In the first 90-minute session you will see how to prepare the image in the RAW converter making it ready for the Pastel process which will be in Adobe Photoshop.
  • You will gain an understanding of how to view the light and move it within the image, create complex masks to assist in contrast protection, balance shadow areas with highlights by painting and softening the light while retaining detail.
  • You will have two weeks to take and make your images and your work will be sent to the tutor.
  • In the second session Jonathan will share your results and you will receive constructive feedback on your submissions.
  • 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
