Workflow is a very important process in creating and managing your photographic library. This workshop will introduce you to professional workflow and the do’s and don’ts of downloading images, filing and creating a safe environment to store them. It’s important when working with your images that you understand the different outputs of saving your photograph as it determines how you can use your image in the future.

At the completion of this live online workshop, you will have a good sense of how to plan a full day of shooting and learn why backing up correctly will keep you sane! We will also look at various software packages available for post-production. We look at the pro’s and con’s of each so you can decide which one is best for you.

This workshop also covers the basics of post-production and Lightroom. By the end of the online workshop, you will have an understanding of why Lightroom or other programs are used and how they can create other alternative outcomes for your photograph.

Completion of our Photography 1, 2, 3, 4 modules will give you the confidence to attend advanced photographic workshops, excursions and tours where we practice all of the new skills learnt in the workshop. These new techniques and creative elements will hone your skills and develop your eye for photography.
