Post-processing is an important part of your photography process. No matter how well you capture the scene in the field, your RAW photos always need an additional punch to make them truly pop.

This post-processing session will help you to get familiar with one of the best tools on the market for photographers – Adobe Lightroom. You can consult your individual questions with your teacher and he will be happy to share his knowledge and experience to make your pictures shine.

What you can learn

  • Understand the photo management and embrace the best practices on Lightroom catalogs, folder structure and import process
  • Speed-up your photography workflow by using efficient ways how to narrow down your selection for editing and learning shortcuts.
  • Implement a reliable back-up system, so you never lose a single picture.
  • Using Develop module to make your pictures shine. You will learn how to correct basic exposure, enhance colors, remove dust spots and work with local adjustments.
  • Merge bracketed shots to HDRs and stitch panoramas.
  • Use external plug-ins like Nik Collection.

The Lightroom session is private unless agreed otherwise, so you will benefit from a 1-on-1 learning experience with a skilled photographer. You determine what you want to learn and set your goals for the session.

If you bring your laptop, you can see how a professional photographer enhances pictures you took and what he can get out of them. After the session you should be able to do the same. If you cannot bring your laptop with Lightroom 6/CC, you will work with the teacher’s laptop – no problem.

Examples of Before and After

This picture benefited mostly from using two graduated ND filters (in post-processing) that helped to enhance details in the sky and the other one did the same for foreground, but by using different controls.

It was a pretty dull picture straight out of camera, but adding vibrancy and getting more details in the sky saved it.

Correcting the exposure (mainly highlights and shadows) helped to make the picture to look pretty, boosting colours and using a graduated filter to emphasize the foreground added a punch to it.

This was a series of bracketed shots (+/- 2 EV) merged into an HDR, in order to retain all the details in the sky and foreground without getting excessive noise.

In the original picture Charles bridge was way too dark, so it needed to be brightened up. Using a graduated ND filter helped to correct the color in the sky as well as adding additional vibrancy and warm tones to the buildings of the Lesser Quarter and the Prague Castle area.
