Enjoy this technical workshop in our new space in Plympton. Light lunch is included. If you have any allergies or dislikes please let us know.
In the morning we learn how to use camera, take photos and in the afternoon you learn how to export images and how to do basic editing.
What you will learn:
This relaxed tutorial session will take you through processing a raw image in Lightroom and editing it in Photoshop.
We will touch on the shared functionality of Adobe Camera Raw (ACR) – The engine behind Lightroom.
The skills here will be transferable across a wide range of software, but we will stick to Adobe products.
We will provide a crib-sheet with sample images to help you practice on your own and share your results for feedback.
Later, more advanced workshops will go into more technical detail and deal with advanced processing and printing.
The structure will be adaptable to the level of the group and individuals, but this is essentially a beginner’s workshop.
To get the most from the session, attendees should aquaint themselves with the software and prepare questions.
