Its back again; a weekend of intermediate and advanced digital processing workshops split over two days at a fabulous public house in the sleepy Devon countryside. Yes, we all know we should shoot in RAW and save in 16bit, so let’s forget the basics and move straight to the core. The weekend is designed to BLOW YOUR MIND with unrivalled state-of-the-art processing techniques, leaving you with the skills to make your images looking natural, evocative and lifting your portfolio to a new and enviable standard. It’s the only one I am doing this year, so book ASAP as this will sell out fast….
The workshop will run from Saturday into Sunday over the course of the day, not in the evenings.
Accommodation IS INCLUDED in the price of the workshop (Friday and Saturday night), so….
FRIDAY NIGHT Try to get down for 8pm on Friday night and meet me for a meal and a few beers. Get a good nights sleep.
SATURDAY - Hard at it on the computers all day (10-5pm), leading into an evening of fun to relax and enjoy the hospitality. If it’s good weather we may even go and take some images….
SUNDAY - Extensive work with complex Photoshop, but again, with plenty of breaks, time for discussion and tea and coffees.
Here’s whats on the digital menu….
This workshop is for those who already have a good understanding of the basics of image editing and are tired of the same old tutorial boredom. It will be example driven, with us all working on my images before getting you to process your own. Watch a presentation or two; all this will be projected, so it will be easy to follow and understand. Here’s what’s on the digital menu -
- How to create Images With Punch
- Contrast Masking and Luminosity Masking
- Creating Images with a Natural Look
- Exposure Blending Basics
- Making Complex Selections
- Advanced Exposure Blending for truly remarkable results
- Colour Managing your Images
