DEVELOPING AN EFFICIENT POST PROCESSING WORKFLOW

At some point most photographers are eager to develop a more structures approach to organising and editing their images. They develop a series of routines for capturing, copying and processing their digital photographs. This series of routines is referred to as a workflow.  In this one-day workshop we use Adobe Lightroom to provide tips and guidelines to improve your entire digital image workflow. We will introduce you to the fundamental workflow functions that will enable you to effortless keep track of all your images (regardless of where you've saved them), edit your images and produce stunning output such as a quality print.

The objective of this workshop is to get photographers that are relatively new to post processing up and running quickly so that, with a bit of practice, you can develop your own workflow practice to improve the efficiency and quality of your photo editing and presentation.
