Adobe L & P workshop

29/11/2021 – The course has been terminated.

1 Description

The course is about adjusting photos and about photography theory.

At the beginning we have a discussion why you sign up, what you expect to learn and what is the best way to learn for you.

It is followed by introduction to graphics (vector vs pixel)

Throughout the workshop you learn about photography principles like a golden ratio and composition, perspective, colours, optical flaws, people as a unit of measurement etc…

The next part is about how to use Adobe Lightroom & Photoshop which is the software used to sort, adjust photos and correct optical imperfections.

Afterwards each weekly class is project-based. Each weekly class is about adjusting various problems with photos like too dark or too bright, warm or cool down a photo, filters to adjust only specific part of a photo, how to delete electrical wires or improve people faces.

You learn about colour management and how photos are printed and why a photo looks differently on your laptop, external LCD, your phone and printed.

You get a homework each week to practice.

The workshop is supplemented with a textbook.
