Lightroom Basics: From RAW to the finished image


Description of talk:
In this workshop, we'll walk through the process of using Adobe Lightroom to process
a RAW file so it's a finished product ready to be printed. We'll look at a wedding
photographer's workflow to learn the tips and tricks that helped me sort through the
thousands of images that I shoot on a weekly basis.

Nicolas Marino

One Bicycle, One Camera, One World



Join adventurer and photographer, Nicolas Marino, on a journey that spans 88 countries (and counting) as he shares his experiences cycling around the world and living with and photographing cultures and sub-cultures that have resisted the expansion of the modern world. In his own words: "Portraying human beings and the environments where they live in; portraying the human condition in the uttermost dignifying way are my clear intentions because in every single person in this world there is dignity, there's humanity, there is something inside every one that intrinsically links them to me and that is what we all share in common."

Roads go in all directions nowadays, through urban areas and country alike, through slums, parks and mountains. Some people’s lives are spent working or travelling on them. Where does your road take you?

A landscape implies an expanse of scenery. Landscape includes cityscapes, seascapes, riverscapes and sunsets. An image comprising solely of a single tree or building does not constitute a landscape. A landscape may include objects such as boats, people or animals provided they do not dominate the image.

Photojournalism/Social Documentary

Photojournalism implies story-telling photographs such as are seen in the news media and periodicals, which may include documentary, contemporary life, illustrative, sport news or human interest.

Social Documentary is concerned with the portrayal and interpretation of society encompassing both human and non-human subject matter. It can include public space, graffiti, socio economic conditions etc which can be depicted without necessarily including human subjects. Social documentary images do portray a story but possibly not as overtly as photojournalistic stories.

In the interest of credibility, contrived situations or photographic manipulations which alter the truth are not acceptable. The story telling value of the photograph shall be weighed more than the pictorial quality.

Photography as Art

The purpose of this award is to encourage photographers to lift their thinking beyond traditional photographic criteria such as sharpness towards the qualities that characterise Great Art. This is easy to say but hard to define. Ideally the image should capture something eternal, beautiful, noteworthy, striking or unusual. It would be a rare image that achieved all of these!

People looking for examples should look to the all-time great art works for inspiration. Clearly these paintings will include but not be restricted to: portraits (such as Rembrandt, Leonardo), landscapes (such as Constable, van Gogh), abstracts (such as Rothko, Kandinsky), human form (such as Ruben, Rodin), and expressionism (such as Munch, Monet).

Any amount or method of photo manipulation is acceptable, however the original image must have been taken by a camera or some other photographic process (e.g. a scanner).

The aim should be to produce an image that one would not be surprised to find hanging in the Perth Art Gallery.
