Editing for digital photography has replaced the darkroom and the trays of chemicals – but it is no less specialised. Learn how to repair some basic shooting errors after the fact, and make your finished images look how you imagined when you took them. Topics which can be covered during a session include:

  • exposure & colour correction (jpg and raw)
  • cropping, straightening, rotating
  • contrast adjustment, black & white conversions
  • working with layers (in Photoshop)
  • creating and using actions & presets
  • cloning/healing (replacing sections of an image, removing/adding objects)
  • blending multiple images including creating panoramas (in Photoshop)
  • finishing your images and preparing them for print or online
  • other questions you may have…

Sessions are booked in 1-hour slots. You will require a computer/laptop with Adobe Photoshop and/or Lightroom installed (or active 30-day trial versions). Online tutoring is available via skype and screen-sharing.

Adobe Creative Cloud now allows users to subscribe for a low monthly amount rather than purchasing software outright. 30-day free trial versions for all required software are also available at the above link.
