Global Edits are changes to the image that effect the entire image. A Local Edit is an edit that only affects a small portion of the image. We’ll learn more about Local Edits later on, but for now we want to focus on Global Edits in CAmera RAW. These are changes to the image’s white balance, exposure, shadow areas, highlights, etc…
In photograph class, we will use Adobe Bridge as a s”springboard” for almost everything we do. It’s a great application, and will help you do a lot of you evaluation and editing of your photographs. But first we have to get them off those memory cards! Watch the demo to review the process I showed you in class:
NOTE: In the demo, I ask you to rename your photos by “Today’s Date.” In class I asked you to rename them by the shot date. I want you to do what I told you in class, not what the demo says. I now think naming the images by their shot date is a better method.

As we’ve been talking about the camera and how it works, I found these two videos and thought they might be informative:
So, first shooting assignment! YAY! Below is a link to the assignment sheet, along with the list of things you are supposed to find. Keep in mind some of the examples we looked at today, but also look at the different design ideas as problems to solve. Problems that require you to come up with your own solution. And remember, enjoy the adventure/process of photographing. Look at the world through the lens in a new way!
