Photography 101 Course

Module IV - Online Live Lecture

In the last module of the photography course for beginners, we finish with a core component of photography - post-production.

We disperse potential prejudices, and find out there is (almost) nothing new in digital postproduction in comparison to "the old times". It just got MUCH EASIER and wildly available.

We go through good practices for post-production and get familiar with the editing program of choice. My recommendation is Capture One, but you can use anything you wish.
