Camera-craft and Lightroom Retouching

Topics to be covered include Portraiture, Landscape, Street and Action/Wildlife genres. Each of these will include a discussion of optimum camera settings, shooting tips and techniques.

Mark will teach you how to quickly and effortlessly transform your images into five-star folio photographs by processing your files in Lightroom, the master of the five-minute makeover. You will learn how to make global and localised adjustment including the use of Graduated and Radial Filters, Adjustment Brushes & Effects.

Smart Workflows and Photoshop Compositing

AFTERNOON: Session 3 after lunch

LEVEL: Beginner to Advanced

Since the introduction of Smart Objects in Photoshop and Smart previews in Lightroom, image editing workflows have undergone an amazing transformation. Photoshop and Lightroom now offer a completely non-destructive and ‘Smart’ workflow. This session looks at how we can best utilise Smart Previews, Smart Objects and Smart Filters including Camera Raw as a Filter and the inclusion of Vector artwork without the need to rasterise vectors into pixels.

Many photographers often see Compositing as a complex and difficult task, but in this session Mark will show you how you can create amazing composite image in just a matter of minutes. This session will cover the concept of layers in Photoshop, the basics of Layer Masks, Blend Modes, Refine Edge and the use of Creative Cloud Libraries (Assets).

Lightroom Mobile and the Nimbus project

AFTERNOON: Session 4 after afternoon tea break

LEVEL: Beginner to Advanced

Discover the power of Photoshop and Lightroom on the move. Showcase and edit your photo collections and keep every image in sync across your multiple devices. Image editing has never been so quick or easy. This session will also look at ‘Project Nimbus’ that was announced at Adobe Max last year.
