Processing Photography Workshop

Processing Photography Workshop

Learn to process and do your photos justice.

There is a stigma around using Photoshop to edit your photos that makes the photo a ‘fake’. In reality that is simply not the case. It is all but required to process your files before they can be used. When you take a photo on a digital camera it records all of the information from the dark shadows to the light highlights, with all the colours and details. These can’t be displayed immediately in a file and need to be brought back out in the photo in processing. When you take a photo on a phone as a jpeg for instance the device automatically applies processing to do this for you. Shooting in Raw gives you the ability to control this yourself.

What you'll learn

We will teach you workflows to manage your photos in post and begin the editing the process. Working with Adobe products to analyse your catalog and process your photos. It can be daunting to jump into programs such as Photoshop without prior experience but we will show you simple ways to work through the software, understand it and use it to your creative advantage.

For those that are already adept in using these programs we will teach you advanced workflows, editing techniques and creative ways to manipulate and enhance your photography.
At the end of this workshop you will have the skills to finalise your photography, export your photos for use and have your photos ready to print. 

We will show your our workflows using Adobe Bridge, Camera Raw and Photoshop.

The processes we use bring out the fine details that you have captured out in the field and and maximise the potential of the photography.

The end of the workshop will leave you with polished photos that will be perfect for social media, print and web use.

Your Instructor

After picking up a camera in 2014 when moving to Australia it soon became apparent that it was more than just a hobby.

Self taught through the years I realised that landscape photography was what drove me to take photos. The thrill of being in nature, discovering sometime unknown locations and capturing it in a way that can last forever.

This grew into a passion to teach via photography workshops so that others can experience the same landscapes that are all around us whilst learning to use a camera.

Together we will have plenty of time to practice shooting the stars. As they, practice makes perfect, and with astrophotography the best way to learn is to be behind the camera. There will be opportunities to learn and practice composition and exposure techniques to enhance night photos.
