All levels of photographers are welcome.

Breakdown of the day

This Full One Day Training running time is

9.30am - 4.30pm with a break for lunch (NOT INCLUDED)

Broken down into 3 sections.

Section 1:  Lighting in Photography : “Its Just LIGHT - Not Rocket Science”

This is to make sure everyone attending gets information on lighting and how easy it can be. Podge takes the fear out of Lighting for people. Podge will use Natural light (if available) Speedlights, Simple lighting using the humble Flash/Torch light. So Podge will work with lighting that is available to everyone. It’s all about showing people how to use and see any light source to help create the images they want to make, the set-up for shooting people, and could be used for still life and product images. More will be shown if time allows.  Unfortunately attendees will not be able to shoot as we will be restricted  on time, but attendees can shoot the set up for reference to use at a later stage for themselves.

11 am Coffee Break

Section 2:   Processing with Photoshop or Lightroom

In this section, Podge will be showing how he uses PS/LR to process his images.

So people who are new, know nothing or have very limited knowledge of Photoshop/Lightroom and are trying to get a handle on how it all works will see that there is no big secret in using these great pieces of software. You, the photographer, are in control at all times of your image processing. This part of the course will cover some basics -  Tools, Levels, Curves - how these can work on images.  Podge will also be looking at how Actions, Pre-sets, Plug-ins, etc, affect your image and can help speed up your processing.  Also, how to do Soft Proofing on images before printing them out to make sure you get the best results every time. Calibration is the key. Podge will be looking at this also.

Lunch Break (1-2pm)    LUNCH NOT INCLUDED

Section 3:   Printing Your Images :

The afternoon will be all about Printing showing the attendees how to set up a printer, looking at the inks, how to do a test to make sure all is working correctly.

Then Podge will be looking at what paper to use, how to set up an image for printing, showing how to soft proof, Calibration is the key, how, where and what are ICC profiles, how they affect your print, and how it all goes together to produce the perfect printed image time and time again. From your best colour image to your best black and white.

So no matter your level of photography there is something here for everyone.

Podge will be asking the Club to provide him with 3 Raw images from 3 members of the Club who will be attending the workshop, and Podge will try his best to have these images processed and printed out to show on the day. Everyone attending the day will leave with at least 1 print from the days lighting demo, processing and printing that Podge shows, more if time allows.

This idea is set to help photographers improve in all aspects of their photography and especially in the printing out of their images.
