Post-processing Course

Adobe Lightroom contains about 1000 menu items and about 3000 buttons, switches and sliders. If you spend on explaining each element for at least one minute, the duration of such a lecture would be eight working days without a break for lunch.

Popular Types of Photography

Macro Photography

Macro photography makes things that are small appear larger than life. It’s got a broad range of applications, but one of our favourites is in photographing tiny bugs and plants.

Interior Photography

Anyone can snap a photo of their home, but great interior photographers create awe-inspiring views of a confined space. Some of the most impressive images are of grandiose settings like opera houses.

Fairy Tale Photography

Fairy tales have been around for hundreds of years, and photographers are still trying to recreate them in their images today.

Some Photo Editing Tips That Might Be Useful for You

Correct the White Balance

Have you ever looked at one of your photos taken in bright sunshine and thought that it had a blue tint to it? For all the advancements of digital cameras, they are still no match for your eyes. Whenever you see any scene in front of you, your eyes automatically adjust so that we see a clear picture in natural colour. If you are photographing in a controlled environment like a studio where the light will be all the same, you can adjust the White Balance manually.

Use Presets to Start

While this might be a good approach to get you acquainted with what all the buttons and sliders in your editing program if you are just learning, it’s not a very practical approach when it comes to actually editing photos.

Make a Photo Black & White to Highlight Contrasts

Of all the photo editing tips, turning a colour photo into a black & white one is one of the scariest to share because they have the potential to highlight imperfections in the camera work behind the scenes. For some images, black & white might be the only way to make it usable.
