Photographer Michael Clark provides an inside look at the reality of working in extreme conditions to capture and process his breath-taking images. He offers start-to-finish details of some of his most demanding assignments—rock climbing, big wave surfing, sky diving, and mountain biking—and shares his post-processing techniques in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4 and Adobe Photoshop CS6 for 16 images. These images are featured in his book Exposed: Inside the Life and Images of a Pro Photographer. These are companion videos to the book. He also includes a how-to primer video on both software programs and advice on color management for intermediate and advanced photographers. Running time: 149 minutes. Michael Clark is an internationally published photographer specializing in adventure sports, travel, and landscape photography.
