August 15, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

A few weeks ago I was a last minute invite to the Adobe Educator Summit. It was a Fabulous week with 20 outstanding educators. Juianne Kost Led the week and Colin Smith did a Adobe Premier and Drone lesson. Randy Braun gave a great introduction to drones and we all had hands on time learning the basics of flying a drone out at the Eaves Movie Ranch. Katrin Eismann gave a talk on the modern digital workflow. Throughout the week we were given 3 assignments, one to make a video with your team, Two to use Adobe Mix, Adobe Fix and Lightroom Mobile to create an image ,and last to create a 6 image series. As you can tell it was non - stop from early morning until late at night. Yes we may have had a bourbon or two during the week. Here are some of my images.

One of the things I thought about in creating this series in four days was cohesiveness. How do you do that? I chose a neighborhood I have been wanting to photograph. Then over four days I had about about four hours to get into the neighborhood and shoot. One shot was from a morning walk with Nina, my dog in the neighborhood where I live. The streets have a similar feel. After the initial edit down to twelve images I had to get tough and narrow the work down to 6. Next I processed them in Lightroom then a little help from Photoshop to clean up dust from my sensor. I need to clean that sensor! I was feeling good about the images I chose, but feeling I could take the images one step further to unify them. I pulled out an old action I used to love that was a toy camera look. Ran it on all the images and then went back in and created a sepia look using Hue and Saturation. I felt the series did well when we all shared our work with the group.

Thank you everyone from Adobe and all the educators who participated and made the week spectacular!
