A picture is worth a thousand words.
If this was true when the phrase was coined, it is one hundred times truer today. We are bombarded with data and we are at a constant sensory overload. An outstanding photo captures an audience and conveys stories in the best way possible. A key factor in making an image “outstanding” is using the right colors or using “Harmonious” colors. Harmonious colors are key for conveying feelings and messages. A good photo can be a decisive purchase argument.
A specialist for such images is Jan Wischermann. He provides professional digital post production and works on projects for well-known advertising agencies and international photographers. Jan will give you an exclusive insight into his personal retouching workflow that allows him to deliver consistent and pristine quality to his partners and clients, such as The New Yorker, Men’s Health and Wired UK to name a few
Understand Colors, Looks, and Harmonies
In this comprehensive 11-chapter video training, Jan Wischermann will take you to a tour of the wonderful world of look development. I am sure you’ve seen those Lightroom-presets, well those are only scratching the surface, Jan goes deep and thorough. You will get a peek into the brains of a world-class retoucher and colorist: Starting with the thought process, going through technique and ending with three completely different color grades.
It’s a deep knowledge well: from color harmonies to color theories to Capture One and its massive possibilities for color correction and matching. If you prefer Photoshop, you will learn everything about Luminosity Masks, editing workflows and the diverse tasks in the commercial retouching world.
Packed with info, fun to watch
Jan delivers four hours and 11 chapters of extremely entertaining presentation, packed with knowledge gained over 15 years of professional experience. Once you finish watching the videos you should feel comfortable to experience with the full power of color.
As a bonus, we also provide a package of Photoshop actions that were used in the training. These actions can be used in Photoshop (version CC and up). The second bonus is a Photoshop layer set that Jan placed in his library (it’s covered in training). This set creates the basic levels for a successful editing.
