If you’re already booked on a Natural Light Photography Workshop for the workshop day only, you can add post processing too to make a full weekend course.
Please tell us the name of the workshop that you’re booked on in the additional notes at checkout to help us find your booking!
Post processing is a vastly important part of great photography and knowing a few tricks can transform your well-composed and exposed images into visually stunning works of fine art. As a supplement to your day’s workshop, we welcome you to join us the following day for an afternoon discussion and presentation of how to boost your images. The session is held in the centre of Harrogate and we invite you to bring along your favourite images from the workshop for helpful feedback by tutors Sam and Mark. There is a small additional charge of £35 for this session.
We cover a couple of alternate workflows for fine tuning your images based on Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop (we cover both full Photoshop and Photoshop Elements). 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.
Our post processing sessions also include a separate 28 page magazine style PDF handout covering Photoshop, Lightroom and printing, full of tips and examples which you can download after the session.
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 the processed Photoshop file and a print-ready JPEG file of your image. Full details are supplied during the post-processing session.
