HOW TO EDIT YOUR PHOTOS TALK
Taking a photo is only the half way stage to creating the final image, and the final polish that you provide in the editing can make all the difference between an OK image and one that really stands out. In this talk I start at the absolute beginning to show what you can do with free software, and explain what extra benefits paid software holds, so that you can see what to do and understand how to do it in the easiest way.
I begin with the basics of editing, working with free and paid software, and what the differences are in practice between different editing programs. I then move on to practical edits which make the most difference in improving your photos and adding to your editing skills. I explain basic tools right through to those using artificial intelligence.
Although Photoshop and Lightroom are the industry standards they can be difficult to use, especially for beginners, and not everyone will get value for money from their monthly subscription model. I have found that many club photographers have learned these programs gradually over the years, but have never come to terms with the latest advances in workflow and artificial intelligence that these programs have to offer. I show my workflow and do some edits in a way that shows so many people what they are missing in these programs.
I visit camera clubs in my area during normal times, but also do Zoom talks to any camera club. I am based in Newton Abbot in Devon. Contact Me for further details.
Here are some of the topics I cover in my talk.
These are some of the before and after images I use in my talk.
