About This Course
Edit photos out of your camera and turn them into professional quality images!
Maintain top quality whilst bringing the very best out of the shots out of your camera!
Bring out the best in a night image taken of an historic statue on the Quays with the iconic Custom House in the background overlooking the dark waters of the river Liffey. Global and local adjustments, cloning out unwanted details, bringing out clarity and detail in shadow areas – you’ll be editing like a pro in no time!
Then, in “O’Connell Street Bridge Light Trails”, I show you how to combine several traffic trail shots from the world famous O’Connell Street Bridge into a spectacular final composite image which will get admiration from everyone who sees such an image.
This class takes you through an easy to follow, structured set of editing steps to turn a typical sunset photo into an image of professional quality.
We edit the shot adjusting exposure, apply some quite complex adjustments to the bridge to brighten it up against the background and use radial filters to bring out specific areas of the shot which need localized brightening.
Although I use Adobe Lightroom CC 2015, the techniques can be applied using any photo editing application, and I’ve split out each different technique into separate sections so they can be watched and applied more easily. Why not watch the class with your own photo open in your own editing application and follow along, applying the techniques I show to your own image? It’s really easy – go on – have a go!
This class takes you through a detailed landscape image edit, covering almost all of the various Develop module tabs in detail.
You will learn how to crop to panoramic ratios, apply global and selective edits, and end up with two very different versions of the original shot – one in color, the other a dramatic black and white.
Anyone can follow and benefit from this class – no prior knowledge required!
