PORTRAIT EDITING EXAMPLE

 

SKIN RETOUCHING EXAMPLE

The camera’s sensor and processor produce only a basic, generic image that you need to “develop” according to your own style and creativity, much like photographers used to develop their negatives in the darkroom in order to produce a beautiful print.

In the realm of Digital Photography, Photoshop is your “darkroom” – and the only way your photographs can be “developed” to their full potential. Not “altered”, not “manipulated”, not “faked”, but shaped into a unique style that after a while will become your “signature” as a photographer.

1. You DO NOT need to learn the entire software to drastically improve your photography.
2. All you need is to understand and learn ONLY THE PHOTOGRAPHY RELATED editing techniques.
3. You can gain this knowledge and be comfortable with the above within just 1 day of intensive training.

We will start with the very basics then finish with the best and most effective digital editing techniques. From  image resolutions, color correction, cropping and straightening, to artistic effects, photo retouching and restoration, we will make sure that at the end of the day you will be familiar and confortable using Photoshop for Photography.

Availability is limited to 8 students for an optimal, hands-on teaching experience.

The course is taught by Claudio Nego, trained Photojournalist with more than 15 years experience in working with the Adobe products, also a Certified Adobe Partner.
