Editing in Adobe

Editing in Adobe

Saturday 15 June
Google Meet - 10am - 2 Hours
Leicester Photography Group
Anthony Tanton
Some might say that capturing the image is the most fun part of photography, others absolutely love post processing and enjoy that more, but whether you love it or hate it, editing is 50% of photography.

This class is for anyone editing in adobe suite or similar programs, the examples will all be in Lightroom and Photoshop. We’ll brush over the basic adjustments, and spend most of our time looking at how to edit and correct the light in separate parts of the image, how to edit and correct colour for complex lighting scenarios, how to remove objects, and we’ll leave space to discuss other issues you might be facing in post production work.

By the end of this class you should be feeling more confident in the adobe suite, have a few new tricks to play around with, and feel confident to produce artistic work that’s ready to print and hang, post to your website, social media, or set as your new computer background.

For this class you will be given access to a folder of images to edit along with the class, there will be time to look at your own images too.

These beautiful images are all around us in nature. It just takes that special "eye" to not only see it but to capture it in a way that will turn that simple little piece of nature into a beautiful piece of art. We will learn how to use different angles, light and shadows, and settings to make subjects pop.

You've got yourself a camera - or you've dusted off one you've had for a little while… and you'd like to know how to take better photos with it. This is the class for you.

First up we'll discuss a little bit about your camera, what the dials and buttons on each camera do. We'll talk a little bit about why your images are really bright or really dark, and then we'll add in a bit of the photo lingo like Aperture, ISO, and Shutter speed. We'll discuss some priority modes if your camera has them, and what lenses you're using.

Mostly we're going to focus on composition, and getting settings to work for you. This is a class designed to get your more comfortable with a camera in your hands, and taking more photos than before, and hopefully you like them a little better too.

    I decided to take the course to get some more understanding of how better to improve my photography. My last camera was a Practica SLR ( 35mm ) and I decided to get back into photography just over a year ago by buying a DSLR camera. After a short conversation with the instructor ( Jerry ) knew what my needs were and took me from taking my photographs from using Auto to using Manual settings. He was very understanding and informative on how to use the settings on my Canon 250D camera. I feel the course gave me a better understanding on how I could improve my photography skills further using better composition techniques and further understanding of Manual setting on my camera . I would definitely recommend this course for anyone wishing to understand and improve their photography further.

    Burton Dasset is a great location for sunrises and sunsets with its hills sitting above all of the local landscape, so a favourite place for early morning and evening walks with my dog and camera. It was actually due to rain on the day I took the image, but it didn't come so we hopped into the car and took a chance. The sky was total cloud when I arrived but as soon as the sun broke beneath them they all just lit up, along with light hitting across the various hills and bumps in the foreground.
