VICTORIA BIRD PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOPS

ADOBE PHOTOSHOP WORKSHOPS

AN INTRODUCTION TO THIS DIGITAL WORKSHOP

 

Digital photography has opened up a whole new world of possibilities for nature photographers.  But to take advantage of these opportunities we must equip ourselves with the proper tools and skills.  With a little bit of knowledge, the right software and an efficient editing workflow; digital editing can help to give your images that “wow factor” you’ve been looking for.

Guided by Glenn, participants will learn how to take their images from straight out-of-the-camera RAW or jpg images to stunning final works of art (ready for printing or websites). We will also calibrate your computer screen so that colours are displayed accurately and your prints will come back from the lab looking the way you expect them to.

Workshops can be taken as single 2 hour classes or as a series of 4 classes (recommended to learn a strong foundation in Adobe Photoshop).

Workshops are generally held at the home of the participant (in order to work at the participant's workstation). If desired the workshop can be conducted at Glenn's office/workstation.

KEY LEARNING OBJECTIVES

After an initial conversation / assessment of the participant's familiarity with digital processing - participants will focus on the following learning objectives:

  • - Understanding the most important tools in Adobe Photoshop.
