Digital Darkroom (Photoshop)

£35 (3 hours incl. refreshments)

Some love it, some hate it - but the fact is that Photoshop should only really be considered to be your 'Digital Darkroom' and no photographic prints have ever been produced without some kind of darkroom process! Tutor Henry Wills will show you techniques for effective workflow, image editing for portrait photography and image repair tools. Whilst on other workshops you will have practiced 'getting it right in the camera', there are always times when a little TLC in the 'darkroom' can improve an image.
