From the days she thought she would be a doctor, to the day she became a Nikon Ambassador, Charmi Patel-Peña’s journey to making positive changes in the world was always personally questioned: "Am I really making a difference in the lives of other people?

The Art and Science of Editing Fine Art Images

10:30am - 12pm

Thibault Roland:  Sony Artisan                                                                                                                          ROOM 1E

Capturing a great photograph is only the first step of creating a breathtaking Fine Art masterpiece ready to be hung in a gallery.  As perfect as the subject and composition may be, the initial capture is nothing but a canvas that the photographer will use to build upon during the image editing phase. The skillful artists will use this very delicate process to achieve their vision and bring their images to the next level, but it is very easy use the wrong tool at the wrong time and ruin what would have been an amazing image.

Attend this lecture to learn from Sony Artisan of Imagery Thibault Roland what digital tools he uses to edit his work, how you can benefit from some of his tricks to improve your own photo processing flow and how to develop your images into exactly what you had in mind even before shooting them in the field. Time permitting, he will also share some of his thoughts on image printing, open vs limited editions and getting your work ready to be shown in a gallery.

---------------

Thibault is originally from France and currently based in Portland OR, USA. He was trained in physics and worked as a researcher at Cornell and Harvard University, where he studied fundamental biological mechanisms using optics and microscopy.

At college, he became instantly fascinated by the theory of relativity, which is a domain of physics that predicts that time and distance are relative and entirely dependent on the location and conditions of observations, just like with photography. Another aspect of physics that always stuck with Thibault is the Observer's Effect. This term relates to the fact that in science, the simple act of making a measurement (or capturing photons in order to create a photograph) can in itself modify the state of the object of interest (or what was captured by the camera).
