Seminar 7: Post Production, February 4, 2018

The Feb 4 post-processing seminar is approaching fast. It’ll be a hands-on seminar, just like last year. Here is a high level agenda for the evening:

  • Workflow
  • Software features
  • Techniques

  • The seminar is aimed at all levels, novice and advanced.
    Please let me know if you would like to learn about any special technique or effect.

    Happy shooting,

    Today, taking a photo is only half the process of photography. Your RAW images require post production. Lightroom and Photoshop are the gold standard for post production, but there are now many other options, and some excellent programs are free. Luminar ($99), ON1 Photo Raw ($100), Topaz Studio (free) and GIMP (free) are PC and Mac applications that are amazing.

    Come to this meeting! I like seeing sea smoke as much as anyone else, but sometimes it is just too windy and too cold and too snowy to go outside and take pictures. Winter is a great time to look through your RAW images and remember why you took them. Post production techniques can transform your images so that everyone else will also know why you took them.

    I will also very briefly talk about HDR, and how it can solve all your photographic problems. Well, at least some of them. 🙂
