As photographers, our goal is always to get the best shot we can ‘in camera’, but there are some things the camera just can’t do. Just like the good ol’ darkroom days we can get creative and make your images look the best they can.

Come for a full day Post Processing Workshop, where we will process our images together step-by-step.

 

If you are like me you probably like to press the shutter button, a lot! It can be daunting to sort through and process all the shots. I will teach you ways to sort, rate and organize your images to ease the process.

 

Editing software can sound like a intimidating thing, with this workshop you will leave more familiar and comfortable with editing your images. Once you see what your images look like, you will go back to process more.

Over the years, I’ve developed my image processing workflow to be quick, impactful yet natural. After a successful shoot I can’t wait to get back to the computer and process my images, to me it is just another step in the photography process. Like the days of the darkroom.

 

I will show you my entire post processing workflow. We will start with storing, sorting, naming, BACKING UP, then move the creative side and start with Adobe Camera Raw process and then finish our images in Adobe Photoshop.

In this Full Day Workshop we’ll cover the following topics:

  • The power of Adobe Camera Raw
  • Sharpening and Noise Reduction
  • How to use lens profiles
  • How to enhance colours with HSL
  • Removing chromatic aberration
