DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY PRODUCTION
Tutor: DAVE WETHEY
Participants on the digital camera workshops in the past have long asked for a follow up session including key aspects of post production work. This is it.
This course will offer a refresher to camera and composition technique but the main focus will be looking at some of the options that are available for enhancing and using images. It will include enhancing images using an effective, quick workflow; effective cropping to improve impact; using images: on a page, in social media and for business use; montages and combining images; scanning images; restoring images; resolution and sizing images.
It will cover many post production techniques such as how layers work, making selections, batch processing, adding text, sharpening, filters and non-destructive editing. Other topics will include options for managing a photo library, selecting the best image, backups and slideshows.
Participants will need to bring a laptop and mouse with an application such as Adobe Photoshop (Adobe Photoshop Elements is recommended). This workshop, for all levels of experience, is a hands on, practical workshop in easy to understand language with notes provided.
