Editing Workflow Overview
We're jumping into our very first editing segment of this class. And editing is my happy place. Maybe it is for you guys as well, it's the place where everything you've been working toward can finally come together and be something completely different or amazing or not amazing depending on how it goes, and I really like not knowing exactly how something's going to go, I like putting it together and experimenting and it's easy to say that because I like it if it works out and if it doesn't work out, then of course it's really depressing, but we're gonna go through some of my work flow here and concentrate first on just peeling back layers of different Photoshop files that I've put together to see how they were created and the choices that were made in creating that final product, which I think is super valuable because it's one thing to put an image together from start to finish watching the shoot and everything, but it's a whole other thing to see something that was already finished a...
nd then to break it down backward from there, to see what went into it, so that's what we're going to do first, and aside from that, we're gonna be putting together some images that we shot already, the red flowing dress candle veil photo, and our miniature scene as well, we're going to take a look at all of these techniques that you might need to be able to put an image together. And hopefully we're going to get through a lot of different small details that are so important when it comes to creating a composited image like cutting somebody off of a background, working with focal points within the images that you're putting together, changing colors of the images to match one another or even more drastically, to create whatever look you want. Along with many other things.
