In this stunning, high-quality DVD-ROM video, Batdorff starts with the basics--composition, light, contrast, and textures--and when to choose black and white. He covers all the key camera features that affect your image (regardless of what type of DSLR you have), including the shutter speed's ability to freeze and convey motion, as well as aperture's direct correlation with depth of field.
Once you've captured those shots, John takes you step-by-step through color conversion and post-processing in Lightroom. He also covers the cool enhancements that can be added with Nik Software Silver Efex Pro.
This video is for beginning-to-intermediate digital photographers to understand the basics and bring their own unique artistic expression to any situation whether taking portraits, action shots, landscapes, studio, or lifestyle shots. Beautifully shot on location and in studio with compelling photos and footage, this video teaches you how to take control of your photography to get the image you want every time you pick up the camera.
This is a DVD-ROM.
Approximate run-time: 90 minutes to two hours.
