A full day workshop that will ground you in the basics of post-production editing software Adobe Photoshop. Regardless of your expertise in photography, it is rare to achieve such a perfect image straight from the camera that post-production editing can be bypassed.

Professional photographer David Nightingale talks you through the core principals of Photoshop with practical examples; from optimising your RAW files to basic masking and layers.
