How to edit your photos in Lightroom, Photoshop, Photomatix

Like all my talks I focus on Access to Photography, this talk introduces you to the exciting dynamic world of HDR (High Dynamic Range).

The presentation begins at the very beginning, taking the photos by a method called bracketing where we take multiple shots and then how we merge them all together into one photo. I begin talking about Camera set up and settings that I use to take these images.
 

Once the photos have been taken we go on a magical journey uploading our images into Lightroom doing some what I call general adjustments then using a software application called Photomatix Pro and finishing off in Photoshop where our presentation looks at Masks, Blend modes, and Layers.

It is a very comprehensive talk and very technical and covers my whole workflow from start to finish incorporating Lightroom, Photomatix, Photoshop and sometimes other filters such as On1 and Topaz. This talk I use my own computer and do Live Edits.
 

I use this technique primarily for Landscapes and Buildings.

Access to Photography an Introduction to HDR (with Photomatix Pro) using Lightroom and Photoshop

I offer several lecturer talks and workshops and am registered with both the Surrey Photographic Association (SPA) and the Sussex Photographic Federation (SxPF).
 
The presentations are all on PowerPoint so I will need a screen and projector which can link up to my laptop. If you do not have a projector please let me know so I can hire one. My rates are very reasonable so please contact me directly for more information. I travel all around Surrey, Sussex, and parts of Kent.

The images on this page are a mix of scapes and creative photoshoots using editing software such as Photomatix, On1, Topaz, Lightroom, and Photoshop.
