Photoshop and digital workflow course - Jan 09

LONDON Freelance Branch is running its first one-day Photoshop workshop for photographers. This will be a basic introduction to working with digital photography, from camera to client or print.  It will include an introduction to simple " quick and dirty" ways of correcting and enhancing images - the crucial things that photographers need to do - which do not compromise the integrity of the image as a document.

Photographers will be expected bring their own laptops computers (PC or Mac) with a legal version of Photoshop, Adode Lightroom or Photoshop Elements installed on it.

The day will be based around Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop (on Mac or PC) but much of what will be covered will also apply in general to other software such as Photoshop Elements, Aperture and so on.

The course will cover some simple background theory: exposure for digital photograph;, the choice of RAW or jpeg file formats; archiving and storage of files; simple image correction and manipulation; some useful Photoshop filters; metadata (captions, keywords, copyright etc); industry standards for supply of images; and general workflow.

The course is on Thursday 25 September from 10am-5pm at the Living Space Community Centre, near Waterloo Station.
