Painterly Portraiture & Post Processing with Amber Damour

Amber will dive deep into how to create unique storytelling painterly portraits. She will guide you through the conception of an idea & how to flex your creative muscles to bring that idea to life through intricate post processing. For outdoor portraiture, she will discuss how to find the right natural available light to suit your subject matter as well as camera settings & lens choices to help create the correct canvas for painterly images. From there, she will move through advanced skin retouching, background adjustments, color grading, painterly touches, adding depth & dimension to your images & more.

Attendees can bring laptops if they want to follow along or take electronic notes but they can also just take notes on paper if they’d like. They should have an intermediate level of Photoshop knowledge like understanding masks and layers
