Back by popular demand, I’m really pleased to announce that “Lightroom: Import To Export” and “Fix It In Photoshop” are returning to Farm Week for another year!
Held at Ridge Farm in Dorking, Photography Farm will be flinging open its solid oak doors from the 16th to the 20th of February 2015 to host 5 incredible days of non residential talks and workshops from some of the world’s leading professional photographers. This year’s Farm Week timetable is the most eclectic and exciting yet, covering everything from weddings and portraits to food, boudoir and even video. Why not pop down, learn a new skill, and then pop in to one (or both!) of my Lightroom and Photoshop retouching workshops on Wednesday 18th February 2015 to learn how to take those images to the next level in post production.
Tired of editing photos one by one? Welcome to Lightroom, a handy software package from Adobe that not only allows you to non-destructively batch edit your image files, add watermarks, create slideshows, become a master of search engine optimisation and even apply smart filters to your catalogue to help you locate images for your end of year blog post. Whether you’re brand new to Lightroom or the Preset Queen, this half day workshop has been designed to give Lightroom users of all levels the knowledge and tools to cut down the amount of time spent in post production.
Workshop attendees will benefit from an in depth look at how to set up catalogues for maximum efficiency, as well as showcasing a range of workflow options for photographers living and working in the fast lane! We’ll also look at how you can create customised defaults specific to your camera’s serial number for those working with two camera bodies or a second shooter. By implementing the tips, tricks and techniques learnt on this four hour course, you’ll be able to cut down your time in front of the computer screen so you have more time to do the other things you love, like taking photos.
Raindrops on your lens? Dodgy fake tans? Giant dinosaurs? Welcome to Fix It in Photoshop, a brilliant selection of industry standard Photoshop retouching techniques presented by Adobe Community Professional Tigz Rice to make sure you’re ready for all those editing requests that life as a photographer may throw at you! In this half day workshop, you will have full access to Tigz’s 12 years of Photoshop knowledge, covering everything from reducing camera shake and sharpening images to dealing with blinking relatives in formal shots, merging together objects from multiple images and cutting out products for e-commerce photography. We’ll also cover lots of other handy techniques like retouching skin, creating panoramas from multiple images and using the liquify tool.
In the final hour of the session, you will also have the opportunity to submit your own problem images for retouching, where Tigz will show you how she would retouch the image to solve the issue.
Spaces are limited on all workshops and masterclasses and this year everything has been selling super fast, so book early to avoid disappointment by clicking here or on the names of either workshop. I hope to see a few of you there!
