Digital post-processing techniques have revolutionized landscape photography and have greatly expanded our range of creative options. In this bootcamp you will quickly learn the most important and essential post-processing techniques to help you achieve your photographic vision:

  • exposure blending to handle high dynamic range situations without using filters
  • focus stacking to achieve sharpness from your feet to infinity
  • dodging and burning for total control over luminosity and contrast
  • corrective and creative color adjustments

This is a full day workshop which will be a mixture of tutorials, demonstrations, exercises, and discussions. The class size is purposely kept small so that every student will have opportunity to get personal help.
