Processing your photographs in the digital darkroom is an integral part of creating stunning images. Shooting in RAW is the best way to have total control over your images during processing. A RAW file is the image as seen by the camera's sensor - think of it like unprocessed film.
Mike is available for Lightroom & Photoshop instruction where you can learn to develop your RAW straight-out-of-the-camera files into amazing works of art. You and Mike will spend as much time as you would like processing your images. He will teach you a step-by-step method covering the entire digital darkroom workflow from RAW file to finished image starting with the basics of data storage & SEO (search engine optimization). We will then discuss everything about selective editing while working on your images: adjusting highlights & shadows, white & black levels, contrast, clarity, noise reduction, color balance, sharpening, lens corrections, etc. and the more advanced techniques involved in masking, layering, transforming, opacity & luminosity blending, exposure blending, panorama stitching, star trails & time lapse techniques, and more. We will also cover the different options for saving your images for the web, printing, or other applications. Please contact us for scheduling so we can take your processing skills to the next level!
We offer in-person processing sessions or online processing sessions via Skype, contact us for more information and for scheduling.
