Announcements and Coming Events
Do you want to color correct your images and get professional results? Carlos believes that anyone can color correct their own images and obtain professional results. He will share his very own simple method of color correction. Carlos will be mainly using Photoshop to show color correcting in a easy and simple way, but will include Lightroom as well. This will be a very practical and interactive presentation where attendees are invited to ask color correction questions. Carlos believes that by the end of this meeting attendees will have a better understanding of color correction, and new ways to improve their own work.
Carlos Garcia, a Watsonville based photographer, specializes in weddings and quinceaňeras. He is increasing his portraiture clients such as family, maternity and kids. He color corrects, retouches and designs his own wedding and quinceaňera albums.
Carlos has been a studio owner for the past eight years. He started with a small 980 sq small studio, just enough for small family group portraits and a nice environment to meet clients. Carlos had the opportunity to move to a bigger and more comfortable studio (4000 sq) about a year and a half ago, just a block away from his last location.
Carlos has been a Certified Professional Photographer for the past 8 years.
Carlos Garcia speaks on:
At age of 15 started working as a photo lab technician in his native Mexico where he learned printing, spotting, developing, and color correcting techniques. He also has worked as color corrector since 1993 at a professional lab, where he has corrected several thousand of images from hundreds of photographers since then.
Carlos collaborated for four years with the Quinceanera Magazine bay area edition as the cover image photographer. He participated in several occasions as "Quinceanera Cover Girl" judge.
