The Power of Photoshop

THE POWER OF PHOTOSHOP

Shooting film is mostly obsolete now so digital processing skills are essential to every photographer. Why then is my 2in1 digital photography workshop the most complete and informative workshop for photographers? Because; (1) The other workshop’s instructors can’t truly “show” you how their magazine staff finished their images, and (2) because the 2in1 Power of Light Digital Photography Workshop is an organized class, not a ‘shoot’em up’ social. My information is always complete, straight to the point, and I GUARANTEE it will dazzle the most demanding creative minds, taking your shooting, lighting and image processing skills to new levels.

Photography is a technical and practiced form of art. It’s not an easy form of fascination since several aspects are at play in a photograph: lighting, focus, composition, subjects and more. Sure you want to get your image right in the camera first but don’t let other workshops fool or mislead you into thinking editing is not necessary to finish your images. Every major magazines, especially the glamour ones, have Photoshop experts on staff. Post processing is just as important as the photo shoot itself. No matter how good a photographer or his image is, there will always be the need to tweak a few flaws and emphasize more detail and there’s always a Photoshop expert doing just that in every major publication out there. Glamour, landscape, event, and portrait photographers need a handy photo editing software to improve their photos. Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Bridge, Adobe Lightroom or equivalent, are must have programs for designers, artists, art students, and publishers as well as photographers.

Tim Lynch, a Celebrity image retouching expert, says that 99.9% of photos published in magazines are retouched in some way or the other. The Photoshop Effect In fact, celebrities hire professionals who retouch every single photo before releasing it to the press. It is so powerful apps are used by amateur photographers and in cell phones to make images look cool or to impress their piers. I think a digital photography workshop is incomplete and falsely advertises if it doesn’t have at least some Digital Photoshop instruction on how they obtained the published images they use to advertise themselves. Dare to compare workshops! I have attended many digital photography workshops and none of the glamour or fashion model industry workshops ever even touched on the Power of Photoshop yet I see all types of softening and filters used, they didn’t discuss in the lighting seminar, and when asked, they just changed the subject.

I share it ALL with you my friend; the lighting techniques, Photoshop recorded actions, workflows, tips and tricks, yes, every aspect you see in my images today. Here is a brief example of topics I cover: Power-of-Photoshop projector topics: My Digital workflow from downloading your Raws & Jpegs to backups and archives. Developing in Lightroom or Bridge. Photoshop detailing of Skin, Face, Hair and Eyes, sharpening, frequency separation and working with unwanted shadows highlights, and uneven toning. The beauty and vibrancy of color enhancing, cross color processing, and the HDR. Always a classic: Black&White, Muting and Tinting. All those wonderful Photoshop tools: cropping, cloning, history, liquefy, blur and sharpen, dodge, burn, curves, contrast, hue and saturation, noise, styling, text and layers. Consistency & Productivity: The Photoshop Action, Plug-ins, Camera Raw Presets, Lightroom Templates. Only her hairdresser only knows for sure?: With my top 10 most important details that photographers should never overlook; flatter your model and keep her coming back for more.

Also includes: My Seth Garcia custom ‘Producer Workflow’ for creativity, productivity and constancy, is customizable to any lighting situation, includes all necessary plug-ins, not only allows you to adjust the basic elements like color, contrast, sharpening, edit hair, eyes, skin, vignette, blur background, as well as convert to b&w, tint, mute, hdr, but also the overall dynamic range for large document prints. Finish up by adding your own custom made and styled text for logo’s, then archive your Images into web ready and print format for easy access when the client is ready to purchase the prints or digital negatives themselves. And now this simple workflow also contains my Instagram styler to make stunning creative 1/1 image ratios without cropping your images. Yes, it’s an ” all in one” easy to use as is, or custom tweak the workflow to suite you. Also, includes my NEW “Producer Lite” Workflow Action, Lightroom Templates and Bridge Settings for the quick batch auto photo enhancements and image archiving for those that are on the go and don’t have time for detailed creative finishing. This seminar in itself opens up a whole new world of creative possibilities that only requires a dash of imagination.

BEFORE & AFTER
Okay, so the client that hired me for this shoot reviewed the proofs I sent, and chose this image saying,
“She gained a few lbs. just make her beautiful”. So after about 30 minutes with my “Producer Workflow Action” this is what I replied with.

⚡ The Student is always the Creative Director at a Seth Garcia Power of Light Workshop!

Seth Garcia​ believes teaching by example, then allowing the student to participate hands on, is the best learning method. Therefore when we meet, we begin by discussing all our location options, we then allow the students to decide the day’s agenda for us. We go to the first location, set up, shoot, then after 3-4 rotations each, we break down and go to the next location and repeat, answering every question regarding the whole setup process. There are NO pre-made sets, all lights are placed and calibrated and explained by Seth Garcia Photography​ so the student can see first hand how easy it is to work with 4,5,6-8 calibrated lights at a time.
At the end of the day, we finish up by discussing finishing methods and the breaking of rules that separate the artist from the photographer. ✨The most intellectual workshop for photographers has gotten even smarter: PowerofLightWorkshop.Com

Read what others have to say about the Power of Light 2in1 Workshop…

‘Seth, I was most impressed by the workshop. A steal for the money invested. I learned a ton about lighting and how simple it can be instead of the 5 headed monster I have tried to make it. Posing is something I struggle with. It was obvious that some of the girls knew what to do and how to do it in front of the camera. For those who were a little lost, you directed them into very natural and provocative poses. I read you loud and clear on the topics. The lighting and posing were just what I was seeking. Really looking forward to doing an outside shoot at the next one and seeing how you do that. I have several friends who were upset that they didn’t know about this. They will next time. I have been teaching photography since the early 80’s. None of mine was about strobes or lighting but either the basics or composition or nature or similar. I feel like you opened up several windows of opportunity for me this weekend. I just need to get my lights out and do some trial runs before launching off into this. Again, THANKS for a great day of learning. It was fantastic! ‘ ~Jim Griggs

‘Seth, Your seminar in Fayetteville, AR was everything I had hoped for, clear and to the point. The demonstrations of lighting equipment for model shots and showing us how you get those beautiful lighting ratios was beyond exciting. I have all the equipment, I had never thought of using the way you do, I put your lighting techniques to work at the “AR” shoot and am very pleased with the result. Thanks also for the tips while I was setting up, I noticed you gave the seminar photographers a little extra attention while they were shooting, that was nice! Your information on directing models was useful also, in fact I found myself using it all afternoon. In a word the seminar was “Great”! Sincerely, ‘ ~Bill Russell, Photographer

‘Seth.. I have to tell you, Yesterday’s class in St Louis, MO before the shoot was amazing and I learned so very much from you. Mostly I would like to say that I was amazed at how down to earth you were and how nice you were! It was my honor to be in the same room.. let alone to learn from you! Thank you so much for taking your time to help fellow photographers.. you are a true gift! 🙂 xoxo love,’~Bellement Brise Photography

‘Seth, I can not believe how much my lighting improved from your class in St Louis, MO. I loved how you spoke in a way that we could understand. I had no knowledge at all of soft boxes except to have seen them. For you to explain how those different lights worked was a gift. It gave me ideas as to what to buy. I didn’t have a clue before. I have had no training what so ever. To hear you speak was just so wonderful. Me and God and thousand of hours! ‘ ~Shannon Edwards, Photographer

‘Seth.. I think that I may have gotten some of the best images I have ever taken, at this event!! Thanks for all the help.’~Kendall K. Krebs

‘Seth.. Had a great time! Very informative and hands on, really enjoyed it and would highly recommend attending to everyone!!!! Thanks for the actions and plug in’s!! ‘ ~Bill Brucker Photography

‘THANK YOU SETH!! I’m just sorry we haven’t shot together sooner:) you’re very professional and fun to work with! I love how much passion you have for photography!! :)’ ~Shannon Ihrke

‘Seth.. What I do is try to learn from every photographer to create my own style. I’m not sure if I really have a style, but I think my voice is consistent in a lot of my work. What you do is way beyond my comprehension so instead of trying to copy it like a lot of other photogs try doing, I just look at the composition and expression and take those points home as to what makes a good picture. I think so many photogs miss the “expression” and “feel” of images. There’s a feel that I like about your work that is independent of all the technical aspects of it.’ ~Daniel Patrick McBride

‘Seth, I was really impressed with your professionalism in Fayetteville, AR. That is and of it’s self a success and a measure of the caliber of who you are. I was very inspired. You were so helpful with me and focused on my needs that I was able to go to the next step of my understanding of lighting. The demonstration helped me tremendously as I was trying to make lighting harder than it should be. I am a visual learner and seeing how you set up a situation was very revealing to me. Also I liked how you articulated your thought process on how you shoot a subject. That is how I learn and that is something you do not get from a book. I loved the straight to the point delivery. Not overwhelming me with technical information and jargon. Thank you again Seth, it was a pleasure meeting you.’ ~Norma Davis, Photographer

‘Seth.. You are the hardest working photographer I know, man! Your stuff is fantastic. Not just saying that. You have a real feel for capturing the crowd and mood of the show.’ ~Phil Willoughby, Attorney at Law

‘Seth, you have created a reputable brand with your workshops. I can contest to that and I have been to a few different workshops. Yours was one of the best I’ve been to. It was a learning experience from the start to the finish in post processing. Most workshops are for portfolio building but didn’t explain why we were doing what we did. I always tell other photographers about my experience at your workshop.’~Troy Tribble Photography
