Anthony Tanton
In this class we will be talking about how to edit those amazing images you have taken to get the very best from them. Get your images ready for printing, framing and hanging on the wall, or posting to your socials to show off your skills to everyone you know.

You will be sent out the images we'll be editing ahead of the session, so you can edit along with me and see it all in real time, or follow along with the screen share if you're of the note taker type.

There will be images for you to edit yourselves and share with the group in turn, so we'll be looking at what your editing style looks like.

I will be editing using Lightroom, but you can edit with whatever you use, whether that's Capture One or Apple Photos. There will be something for you here.

We'll be looking at all of the basic exposure sliders, Presence, editing colour from the basics through to individual HSL.

We'll also be looking at how to create more depth and contrast in your images to draw the eye to a certain point, make your subject pop, and other more intermediate techniques to give your photos that little extra finishing touch.
