1pm - 5pm Thursday 12th September 2019

Do you find yourself getting your photos onto your computer and maybe into Lightroom, but then struggle to know what to do next to enhance the image? Maybe you just can’t get it to look like it did at the time you shot it? Or perhaps you just don’t know how to crop it to create the best composition?

If you have then this short workshop is for you!

We strongly believe that every image can be enhanced in some way in post production. Whether it’s simple exposure corrections or cropping, adding more sharpening or noise reduction, or much more.
We don’t subscribe to the lie myth that an image is only accurate “straight out of camera”

This information-filled 4 hour Lightroom Workshop will work through all the panels in the Develop module of Lightroom, to help you understand which bits you need to use and which you don’t; and most importantly how to tweak an image to get the very best from it.

In this workshop we will look at

  • Adobe Lightroom Classic CC - Develop mode

  • Basic Image Adjustments - including cropping, exposure, white balance, shadow/highlight

  • Benefits of Shooting RAW

  • Dispelling the SOOC (Straight Out Of Camera) myth

  • Advanced techniques using Adjustment Brushes

  • Basic Cloning & Spot Removal

  • Selective Colour editing

  • Noise Reduction & Sharpening

  • Composition

Small Group = Personalised Attention

Part of our philosophy at Flock is to keep the groups small to make sure we can give you the attention you need. So our post production workshops are limited to 4 people.
They are held at Society Photography (Dave’s studio) - in the beautiful Headland Park Harbour Trust precinct in Mosman. A comfortable and relaxed space perfect for a small intimate group.
For the best image quality we will looking at high resolution monitors which will give you a great view of the subtleties of image correction.
We want this to be a really practical session, so it’s also super important to bring along your own laptop (or iPad if that is your preferred editing device) so you can work along with Dave and make the learning even more personal and help it sink in.
Also have your computer loaded with at least a trial version of Adobe Lightroom Classic CC. If you are only using a program such as Apple Photos don’t worry, a lot of what we will be talking about will carry over.

Note the workshop will be presented on Apple Mac computers, however all the concepts taught are completely transferable to a PC workflow.

Cost $175 per person (maximum 4)

I recently attended Flock Wildlife’s Lightroom Workshop and I couldn’t recommend it highly enough.
If you think you ‘might know the basics’, think again (and book in!)
David was extremely patient, attentive and was able to cater for individual needs and levels of understanding.
Thanks to this Flock Workshop, I have been able to edit what I thought were deletable images and my application of post-processing has increased significantly.
