Getting your photos right in the field should always be your primary goal. But no matter how good your shots look on the back of your camera, to make them shine online and in print you need to understand how to edit, compose and export your images for maximum effect.
This workshop will give you the skills to make your photos ‘pop’ whether you’re posting them online or putting them on a wall.
IMPORTANT: This workshop is based on post-processing using the Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop). A CreativeCloud photography subscription is highly recommended and is quite affordable at only $14.29 per month (AUD). You will need to bring your own laptop with Photoshop CC installed for this workshop. If you don't have a computer of your own, a loan computer can be arranged at a cost of $130 for the day.
PLEASE NOTE: You do not need any prior Photoshop skills to participate in this workshop. You will be learning the workflow I use to edit my wildlife photos in a simple step-by-step process.
Follow this link to subscribe to a CreativeCloud Photography Plan (Mac and Windows).
