This course is designed to introduce you several quick and simple techniques how to improve the color, contrast and sharpness of your images in a short time using Lab Color Mode in Adobe Photoshop.
Lab is one of the most powerful color spaces which gives you capabilities that you will not get working in Photoshop RGB and CMYK colors: control the light and color of your pictures separately.
With quick and simple tricks you will learn how to improve the contrast and sharpness of your picture without any additional color noise and fringe. You will learn how to get rich and vibrant colors without spending tons of time on work with different adjustment layers and filters. Instead of using lots of Photoshop Adjustment Layers and Filters we will work with Curves only.
We will also discuss how to get correct color balance, skin tones and how to recolor objects on your picture without creating layer mask.

Who is the target audience?
  • Landscape photographers
  • Wedding, outdoor and interior photographers
  • Anyone who wants to get better in color correction
  • Anyone who wants to save time when retouching images

Professional photographer and retoucher

Hello, my name is Diana, I am photographer and retoucher. I have a quite unusual biography. When I finished school, I entered Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology. Physics and math are still my big passion, and I spent many years teaching other people to love science. Photography has always been my hobby; I think I did not take it seriously that time, but I always felt happy only with a camera in my hands. I worked in IT company, Economic institute, Business consulting and many other areas. Finally I understood that there is no better work than to create beautiful pictures, learn photography and to help other people to learn it. Over the years I still enjoy my work and I constantly find something new and exciting. I hope we can discover together even more.
