“I do a lot of image processing using the iPhone and mobile apps to create highly stylized images. When I discovered Topaz it opened up a whole new world of processing for my “big camera” images.”

Join photographer Rad A. Drew as he shares his processes for creating highly stylized images using Topaz Studio and an array of Topaz tools like Topaz Impression, Texture Effects, Glow, and more. Drew processes his images in a way that takes the viewer into a fantasy land often only vaguely reminiscent of reality.

Rad will share his workflow in Topaz Studio with the new “In Studio” access to Clarity, Impression, Texture Effects, Simplify, and Detail, to quickly and easily edit your images to achieve your creative vision.

Rad is a teacher, tour leader, and award-winning photographer whose creative images have been recognized in juried international competitions and exhibited in galleries around the world.

Topaz Studio just keeps getting better and better! With every new adjustment added, it allows me to do more of my creative editing right in the Studio workspace. In this webinar I will demonstrate ways to layer two or more images to create a composite. I will utilize my own images as well as features within Studio. Then I’ll show you how to take a texture and change the color or other features to create new textures that are truly your own.

Presented by: Software covered: , , ,

NOTE: The presentation talks more about processes than our traditional workflow webinars, join Harold Davis as he explains the why behind the how of his editing workflow.

Master photographer Harold Davis is well known for his books, prints, and extraordinary images of a wide variety of subject matter. “I’ve been called a digital artist who uses photographs as my source material,” he says, “and I believe this is a good way to consider my work.” Harold Davis likes to take his imagery slightly beyond conventional photography using digital painting, but not so far beyond photography that he would “lose the suspension of disbelief inherent in the photographic capture.”

In creating this syncretic mixture of photography and digital art, Harold Davis says that among his favorite “go-to tools are the brilliant Topaz Labs Photoshop plugins.”

In this webinar, Harold will explain how he uses Topaz Adjust, Topaz Simplify, Topaz Glow 2, and Topaz Impressions 2, and provide concrete examples. He’ll discuss two of his ideas about using special effects in Photoshop: If you’ve ever wanted to know how the Hegelian triad and homeopathy relate to the use of the Topaz plugins in Photoshop, this may be the webinar for you. Finally, he’ll explain how he uses a touch of Topaz in his workflow to create his unique photographic art.

There will be time for Q&A following the webinar.

About Harold Davis: Harold Davis is the author of eighteen bestselling photography books, most recently Achieving Your Potential As a Photographer: A Photographer’s Creative Companion and Workbook, published by Focal Press. His new book, The Photographer’s Black & White Handbook: Making and Processing Stunning Digital Black and White Photos, is slated for early 2017 publication by Monacelli Press. A Zeiss Lens Ambassador and Moab Master, Harold’s work has been published in books, advertisements, cards, posters, and in art editions. His prints are widely collected. As a workshop leader he is constantly in demand.  Harold is on the faculty at institutions including the Heidelberg Summer School of Photography, Maine Media Workshops, and Point Reyes Field Seminars.

Rad A. Drew is a passionate photographer and award-winning iPhoneographer whose creative iPhone images have been recognized in juried international competitions and exhibited in galleries around the world.
