Saturday 17 November
2.30pm-6.30pm - Natural Light Photography

Attendees will learn how to use their natural surroundings to help shape and control light when they have no control over the actual light itself (i.e. ambient or sunlight). Attendees will learn how to use natural light shaping tools such as reflectors and scrims as well as using their surroundings, walls, shadow zones etc to create interesting and different effects using only ambient light. Key Outcomes: Attendees will be able to produce memorable images and excellent results in even the most challenging lighting situations allowing them work at any time during the day and in both harsh and gently lighting situations.

Sunday 18 November
8am - 2pm - Post Production: Lightroom & Photoshop

This workshop is designed to get you up and running with Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop in just one day. Both of these programs are the industry standard for post production of images today.

In particular, what most people don’t realise is that Lightroom is so much more than a piece of processing software, it’s a complete image management and filing system. The course will teach you the introduction to Lightroom, how it works, setup, importing, exporting, the develop module and it’s tools and advanced processing with going out of Lightroom into through Photoshop. When concentrating on Photoshop, we provide a full introduction to the basic Photoshop tools for photographers. The key topics are based around Photoshop and its relationship with Lightroom, which to use, when and how to make them work together to supercharge your image editing.

Our course is designed as an overview of how to work with the software to make it the very hub of your post production workflow.
