Post Production Training

Remote post production training via Skype – £90 for 1hr session or 2 x 1hr sessions for £160*
*The number of sessions you need depends on your level of experience. Most people start with two hours and then put the practise in and reassess where they need help, if any.

You can record the session with me locally on your computer using Skype.

TOPICS COVERED INCLUDE

  • Establishing a file structure, archive and backup strategy
  • Setting up Lightroom’s automated import feature for your camera
  • Importing photos and adding metadata
  • Picture selection using Photo Mechanic or Lightroom
  • Rating, tagging and renaming photos
  • Artistic interpretation of the image
  • Making adjustments using the complete toolset of Lightroom
  • Making a complete set of black & white copies in a few mouse clicks
  • Exporting for archive, web and print.

WHAT IS THE PROCESS?

Once you have made your booking, my team will contact you and arrange a mutually convenient time for your first session. I am used to working across different time zones so this should not be a problem.

You send us a batch of 40 or so raw files via We Send It, Dropbox or Google Drive. I’ll preload them into a new Lightroom catalogue ready for a Skype session with you. I’ll then share my screen. You get to see everything that I am doing in real time. At the end of the session, any XMP files generated can be sent to you so that you have all the edits created. Throughout the process I will cover wider topics including long term file and picture management strategies, and alternative methods of selecting pictures as required.

Over the past 10 years I've been on a number of Lovegrove adventures. They are exactly as prescribed, full of photography adventure with wonderful models, inspiring locations and of course 1st class tuition from Damien. These adventures really took my photography to a whole new level!
