This course builds photography and image editing skills (Photoshop and Lightroom) into a week of exploring London with your camera, and with expert guidance by your side.
You will begin to discover what your eyes are drawn to on the streets, to be inspired when to take the picture, learn how to capture a strong visual of the space you are in, and then to edit (post-produce) to bring your photography to the best it can be, using our computers and software back at the studio.
The course will start with a refresher of camera skills, heading out quickly to put these into practice, and returning already on day 1 to do a first edit.
The following days will be a mix and match, based on the group’s particular interests and customised to areas to shoot in, with editing time spaced to enable review and work on “perfecting” your images!
Great for anyone who is a bit rusty on either camera skills or Photoshop, and who wants to have some fun with time exploring and progressing in both.
Photoshop techninques could include:
- bringing out the best visual highlights within an image,
- adding new colours,
- altering a single part of an image,
- overlapping images to create collages,
- adding text to create posters, etc.
and LOTS more!
This course can be used as a Skill for the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme.
