Digital Darkroom Workshop

If you have ever wanted to take your images/prints to the next level, then this is the workshop for you.

After selling thousands of beautiful fine art prints over the last ten years, I am now teaching and showing my digital workflow, enabling you to not only produce beautiful fine art prints but to also have a deeper understanding of how to take your artwork to the next level.

My workflow consists of simple yet very powerful adjustments, giving you total control of the contrast and colour of your images, allowing you to create your own personal vision.

Some of the subjects I can cover during a workshop are:
  • Raw Conversion (vital in image quality)
  • Smart Objects (total control of raw processing)
  • Non-destructive workflow
  • Luminosity Masks
  • Layers and Masks and their creative use
  • Gradients (a little used but powerful processing tool)
  • Powerful black and white conversions
  • Colour Separation
  • Print resizing and sharpening
  • Controlling contrast
  • Colour correction
  • Dodging and burning (a real art form)
  • Colour painting
  • Enhancing light
  • Exposure blending
  • Glow effects

All Digital Darkroom Workshops are usually run on a 1-2-1 basis and are bespoke to the clients requirements and abilities.

We believe that the best environment for learning is the one you are most comfortable in. For this reason we are prepared to travel to your home, or a location of your choice, with a laptop loaded with the latest software.

The price of a one day 1-2-1 workshop starts at £180.00.
