Over the winter months it’s not always easy to get out and shoot so it’s a great time to take advantage of all that time stuck indoors to develop your digital darkroom skills and learn some new post-processing techniques etc.
I’ve had a few training enquiries recently from people who were pretty good photographers, but really felt overwhelmed by the complexity of the latest software packages and they simply didn’t know where to start.
Maybe I can help?
I am unashamedly a digital photographer, and over the years I’ve gained a lot of experience in digital imaging and post-processing techniques. My software training, as with all my one-to-one teaching will be tailored to your individual requirements, whether that be to learn some basic editing skills, right through to implement a full digital asset management workflow from scratch.
Typical topics might include:
- Choosing the right software packages to suit your needs
- Importing your photos and organising your image library
- Working with RAW files
- Basic techniques (Cropping / straightening / resizing)
- Digital Darkroom techniques (Exposure / Contrast / Colour corrections)
- Monochrome Conversions
- Sharpening / noise reduction
- Preparing files for professional printing
- Photo stitching / digital panoramas
- HDR Processing
- Portrait retouching (‘Airbrushing’)
- Digital Photo Restoration: Bring Old Photos Back to Life
