Lightbox Launch

To celebrate the launch of Lightbox 2017/18, Redeye invites previous Lightbox participants to share their experiences of the course. Whilst offering the opportunity for prospective applicants to learn more about the course content and have any questions answered.

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.
