VIDEO: Crafting Images in the Digital Darkroom with Topaz Labs Tools

Difficulty: Everyone, great for Novice and Pro alike 

In this era of digital photography, a large part of the creative process happens after the image is recorded. Yes, getting things “right” in the camera is important; and decisions about composition, lighting, and depth of field are all choices to attend to before clicking the shutter. But once an image is recorded, makes the cut, leaves the camera card or mobile phone, and makes its way into the computer, what happens then? That’s were Topaz Labs comes in and boy does it shine! Whether crafting landscapes to look exactly as they appeared when the shutter clicked, or stylizing images to create a painterly image, a nostalgic tone, or a vintage look, Topaz adjustments and effects help photographers realize their creative vision. 

Join photographer Rad Drew as he applies Topaz Labs software to craft traditional, infrared and mobile images in Topaz Studio, today’s Digital Darkroom. Rad will demonstrate the power of AI Clear, and discuss applications of AI Gigapixel, Topaz’s latest artificial intelligence software for enlarging images. Then he’ll share his workflow for processing landscapes from Cape Cod and Hawaii, scenes from Cuba, and revisit his hallmark infrared image processing using a variety of Topaz editing tools and Pro Adjustments. 

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. His photography workshops in the South of France, Cape Cod, Tuscany, Cuba, Hawaii, and other destinations throughout the continental USA are great ways to learn while photographing beautiful areas of the world.
