David will also personally do a brief critique of your current portfolio, offering suggestions & pointers to enable you to achieve your personal goals with editing & style.

Topics covered:

  • Camera RAW & Lightroom Develop tools
  • Best practices for preserving highest possible image detail & color retention
  • Learn how to read histograms and clipping info
  • Dodging & burning, healing brush & other essential PS tools
  • Workflow using custom presets in Lightroom
  • How to build a 'look' or visual style
