Car photography workshop Ralf Jurrien : June 26th 2012 - 11:50 CET
Adobe car photography workshop course : Lynda announced a new car photography course featuring guidelines for photographing cars taught by Adobe Photoshop senior product manager Bryan O’Neil Hughes. The car photography course, Photo Workshop: Car Photography Tips, is a summation of a workshop hosted by lynda and Adobe. Over 130 participants spent a day with Hughes at the lynda campus photographing rare cars and learning how to perfect their car photography with Adobe Photoshop CS6. “lynda is committed to providing the most relevant and in-depth course content online, and this one-of-a-kind workshop is an example of how we hope to inspire our members,” said Lynda Weinman, cofounder and executive chair of Lynda website.
Lynda Weinman continued: “Bryan’s course, which draws upon his expertise in both photography and Photoshop, is an excellent addition to our growing library of over 500 courses on Adobe software.” Hughes, who is a photographer and car buff, takes photos and shares his advice for car photography, shows how to evaluate the lines of the vehicle, and explains how to compose shots for the greatest dramatic effect. Lynda staged professional studio lighting for the car photography workshop in three separate spaces-a cleared-out warehouse, an outdoor setup, and a professional studio in its newly redesigned production center.

”As if the cool spaces Lynda provided weren’t enough, Bruce Heavin, Lynda cofounder and chief creative officer, just happened to have a Mercedes SLS AMG for us to shoot, and one of his employees had an equally rare BMW 135M,” said Hughes. “They also used a white infinity edge, curved backdrop to showcase an Aprilia motorcycle in another studio. It was heaven for car enthusiasts … me included!” In the second part of the Mercedes SLS AMG car photography workshop, Hughes guides the course's attendees through his Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop workflow, and shares how to take advantage of the features in Photoshop CS6, such as the revamped Crop tool, the Iris Blur and Tilt-Shift filters, the Content-Aware Move tool, and its video editing tools.
