Domestika Basics · 5 courses included

If your passion is photography and you want to optimize your images to achieve professional results, the photographer and retoucher Oriol Segon will help you achieve it in these five courses with Adobe Photoshop. Learn from scratch to use the reference software, ideal for post-producing your photographs and giving them the aesthetics that you want so much.

The first thing will be to know the Adobe Photoshop interface. You will acquire the basic knowledge to navigate with ease and you will start to move between layers, adjustments, masks, filters and selections ... the basics to start adjusting your image!

Next, you will see in depth the different adjustments of retouching, finishes and you will begin to use masks. In addition, you will discover why integrating Adobe Camera Raw developer software into Photoshop can improve your workflow by using smart objects.

You will see how to get the full potential to an outdoor session and then postproduce the images by delving into brightness and color adjustments. You will learn to choose development settings based on what you want to count by deepening adjustments in brightness, color and different finishes to generate homogeneity in your images.

You will make an advertising photographic portrait. To do this, you will apply an intelligent development adjusting its brightness, contrast and color. You will learn to treat and nuance the skin and volumes, and you will see how to independently treat portrait and background through masks.

Finally, you will use the accumulated knowledge to post-produce an advertising portrait and create a product photography composition integrating photographic images with computer generated images. You will see how to create dynamism, generate an atmosphere for composition and integrate elements that provide realism.

After these 5 courses, you can take a step forward in the digital treatment of your photographs.
