If all goes well you conceive your final image in your mind’s eye using visualization and create a path to it from capture onward. Other times there is discovery along the way where you may alter your image, perhaps just converting to black and white or even a complete departure and transformation from your original capture. All those paths can lead to your masterpiece. Join imaging expert and internationally published photographer Joel Wolfson as he shows you how Topaz plug-ins can help you create your masterpiece following different paths. Joel will show you some of his own paths and techniques using Adjust, Clarity, B&W Effects, the NEW Impression 2.0, and other favorites.

Joel conducts photo workshops worldwide from his native Southwest to Italy, France and other locales. His roster of notable clients include Newsweek, Elle, Seventeen, Houghton Mifflin, and corporate clients such as Apple, AT&T, 3M, United Airlines and Pillsbury. His technical articles on digital imaging have been translated for use in more than 30 countries. Yet he is best known for his artistic images and unexpected views of everyday places around the globe.
