Sketching & Watercolor Effects (1) Session
In this workshop students will learn how photographs of jewelry can be transformed to look like dramatic sketches or watercolors. These look more personal, more like art and less like a documentary, but also allow to draw the attention to focal points in the image. We learn how to use new tools, filters and masks etc. and the students get to apply these techniques to their own photography. This gives them valuable tools to improve their websites or other presentations of their work while expanding their knowledge and comfort with Photoshop.
Students are required to bring their own laptop loaded with Photoshop CS 6 or higher, a wacom/intuos tablet and photographs of your work to class.
In this class you will learn how to:
How to convert a photograph to an eye catching sketch, apply filters, new brushes, masks and other techniques to manipulate the image.
Make it appear as if you started with a sketch and ended with the real product, all in one image.
Transform your photography into a beautiful watercolor, shifting color ranges and textures to give the image the look of art.
Create attractive presentations of your jewelry for invitations, business cards, posters, etc. making it more sensual than mere photography.
Learn to use photography as raw material for art work that illustrates more closely your ideas behind your designs.
