A couple of years ago I was lucky enough to attend a day workshop with Trey Ratcliff where he kindly shared his thoughts and methods around the software he uses and how he post processes his images. It was a revelation for me and I began to realise that the best images often have a bit more care taken around their post pro than I was really doing.
Also I began to realise that a lot more can be done within Lightroom, esp the latest version 5 has some nifty new enhancements but I hadn’t invested much time in learning about them and how to use them.
I got an email today from EyeVoyage today offering a deal on 10 videos to help you improve your post pro technique
No matter how strong the composition, how dramatic the moment or how interesting the subject in the viewfinder, a potentially great photo never shines until it is post-processed with knowledge. Good post-processing won’t save a poor image, but it will make a strong image stand out.
“Understanding Post-processing” is a unique educational tool. You learn through action, by working on the 10 provided RAW files and following the steps in the 10 video tutorials. Every important technique is illuminated in more depth through the 52 additional examples that are de-constructed in the videos
There were some sample videos to watch, and I watched all three, and instantly learnt a new thing that I hadn’t known, which was going to solve a problem I have right now. Because I was a previous customer I got a special deal, but if you are wanting to learn new tips to get the most of Lightroom 5 I suggest you consider this as a good place to start 🙂
I will be watching the first few videos tonight and am looking forward to taking lots of notes for reference!
Does you have any other Lightroom videos or tutorials to suggest?
