POST PROCESSING workshop
Now that you’ve taken these incredible images…what now?
Post processing is where you can really bring your images to life and turn an ordinary image into art. Our workshop will provide you with an in depth lesson into processing your image in Photoshop. We teach you at your pace and give you tips and shortcuts so you spend less time editing.
We show you how to edit your images in Camera RAW, what the sliders mean and do and then bring your image into Photoshop. We then guide you around the tools and adjustments necessary to enhance your skills using layers, masks, blending exposures and focus stacking. Astrophotography requires a lot of colour adjustments & we show you the quick and easy way to achieve just that. We also show you how to make local adjustments and fix imperfections in your image, as well as overall sharpening and reducing noise. Finally, we show you how to best save and resizing your images for social media and for printing at their highest and best quality.
