This event is part of the Redeye Academy programme, set up to support photographers at any level, particularly enthusiasts and non-professionals, who would like to develop their technical abilities and create photography that has more meaning and expression. Whether you consider yourself an amateur or enthusiast Redeye Academy aims to give you the best available training, development and support in contemporary photography. 


Photoshop for Photographers is 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.

Students will be expected to bring along their own computers and work alongside the instructor (using images that will be provided to them at the start of the workshop). Additionally, there will be time for them to apply the various techniques to a range of their own images.

*Unfortunately this event has been cancelled due to circumstances outside of our control.
