This resolutely modern album is a musical portrait of Philip Glass. Angèle Dubeau has always maintained a passionate interest in all musical forms; this curiosity led her to explore the works of Glass and to paint a dramatic portrait of the composer with these personal choices of some of his most significant works for strings. For a number of years, Angèle Dubeau has collaborated with Philip Glass in New York while working on his first violin concerto. In light of this relationship, Glass authorized, for the first time, an overview of his work with musicians other than the ones he works with regularly. With this repertoire, Angèle Dubeau proves her artistic maturity while exploring new territories, bringing this discovery - or rediscovery - of this great composer of our time to her public.
Studio portraits are usually shot under optimal conditions. Controlled lighting, seamless backdrops, maybe even professional hair and makeup. But there's still work you can do to make your subjects look their best in post. In this Portrait Project, Chris Orwig takes a raw file, makes foundational adjustments in Camera Raw, and then takes the image into Photoshop for retouching. There you'll learn how to retouch small blemishes, smooth and de-shine skin, and enhance color. Before and after comparisons along the way allow you to check your progress. Dive in now and start improving your portrait prowess.
