Taking our cameras out and getting lots of images is one thing, but in this digital world at some stage you will want to download them onto your computer and show them to other people. To get the best image from all your hard work as a photographer you will need to shoot in RAW but even if you shoot in JPEG you will still need to post process your images to get the best out of them. Now is the time you will find out that taking the image is only a small part of the creation of a digital image. You can spend more time sat in front of the computer processing the image then actually taking it, especially if you do not understand the process.

At times it is necessary to bring back to life the image you tried to capture in the field using your eyes. Human eyes see more information than the digital camera does, e.g. the different intensities of highlights and shadows, different colours etc., that will need to be recovered during post processing, along with other changes you want to make to recreate the image and experience you saw. Post processing is the modern day darkroom so we must learn to embrace and enjoy it to give the viewer of our image the finished splendour of our experience.

This is where my One to One or One to Two (maximum) Post Processing workshop comes in. By using both Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop in this one day workshop I will show you all the secrets and aspects of my post processing workflow. The knowledge and the techniques you'll learn in this course are essential to good photography. You will learn how to turn good images into great ones, it will help speed up your post processing time and help develop your own post processing workflow.

This workshop is for all levels of photographers who want to learn how to get the most out of their RAW images. It will give you inspiration and a fresh new way of looking at the software you have available to you as a photographer to become truly artistic with your images.
