Photo Editing Night – 13 October

This night is coming up.  If you don’t do much post processing and would like to see what can be done on your images, or just like to see how someone else would approach editing an image then please

Post an image that is straight out of camera/raw to an album we have set up for the night on our facebook page here:

and also send one to me in as high res as possible:

Other members can then upload the image to process it how they would approach editing the image and then re-post back to the group.

Richard Mayston and myself will then choose a few to be viewed and broken down step by step on the night so that we can hopefully all learn some new techniques.

We would prefer that the editing be done in Lightroom or other similar programs and not photoshop to keep it as simple as possible for people who are not used to processing and if you do process and image and re-post it that we might ask you to show your steps to us all
