Fine Art Color Photography Master Class
with Serge Ramelli
Following on the heels of his master class in B&W fine art photography, Serge Ramelli is back with an even bigger class on fine art color photography. Join Serge as he takes you through his workflow for capturing and preparing photos to be included in four of his color fine art photo books. You’ll not only get a behind the scenes look at his workflow, but also a virtual world tour as he break down his processing of photos from Venice, Los Angeles, New York, and Paris. As Serge steps through his post processing workflow using Lightroom Classic, Photoshop, and Aurora HDR, he shares the decisions he made at the time of capture, his approach to basic processing, HDR merging, panorama stitching, noise reduction, and of course, making that color pop.
