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. Generally, images will need to be altered in size and adjusted for exposure, tone and print. 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.
