Not just for professionals
If you’re interested in digital photography, you cannot bypass the key skill for a digital photographer that is photo editing. Using software packages such as Photoshop, Corel or Lightroom, photographers perform the same edits they used to do in darkroom – just easier, faster and more conveniently on the computer. And it’s not just for Pros – today’s tools such as Lightroom are affordable, intuitive to use, powerful in its capabilities and non destructive to your images – that means you can always undo a process you applied to it.
What you will learn
Our Photo Editing course guides you through the photo editing process in Adobe Lightroom from start to finish – from setting it up correctly, organising your collections and creating a workflow that suits your needs, through learning the capabilities of all the editing settings such as adjusting exposure or sharpening the images; all the way to printing and creating photo books. We’ll show you how to create specific artistic effects ( high impact Black and white, vintage, sun-filled, vibrant etc ), and how to fix common photography problems ( grainy images, underexposed images, wrong colours etc). At the end of the course you will be able to confidently manage your photo collection with Lightroom, achieve desired artistic effects and make your photos truly stand out.
The course set up
The course consists of 4 modules, released on a weekly basis. The teaching is delivered through a mixture of text, screenshots and videos demonstrating all the actions. At the end of each module you are given a home assignment to help you practice the skills introduced in the module.
The course is delivered in two participation options : Full Participation and Study Along. Full Participation students get access to all the materials, as well as our dedicated support forum where they get to interact with one of our instructors, ask questions, receive advice and feedback on their images and chat to their course mates. Study Along students get access to all the course materials, but not the support forums.
