Learn Lightroom and Photoshop techniques to create beautiful fine art prints


Once you have your perfectly exposed image you’re nearly there.  By applying a few basic adjustments to ensure correct tonal range, contrast and saturation you’ll have an image worthy of exhibition.

On each of our day workshops we offer an optional post-processing session the following day where we cover a couple of alternate workflows for fine tuning your images based on Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop.  We’ll cover using raw files, making global adjustments for white balance, tonal range and contrast and local adjustments such as applying graduated filters in Lightroom through to burning and dodging in Photoshop.  Finally, we’ll talk about preparing your images for output to get the most out of your home printer or lab.  You’re encouraged to bring along a few of your favourite images from the workshop for us to use as examples during the post processing session.

Our post processing sessions also include a separate magazine style handout covering Photoshop, Lightroom and printing, full of tips and examples for you to take away.

We don’t have the facilities to make prints at the post-processing session, but we do offer a supplementary print service, so if you have a particular favourite image taken on the workshop day we can supply an unmounted A3 print on 100% cotton fine art paper.  The print is supplied along with a CD containing the processed Photoshop file and a print-ready JPEG file of your image.  Full details are supplied during the post-processing session.

We hope that’s given you a flavour of what you’ll learn from a Natural Light Photography Workshop!
