Basic Post-Processing Techniques
Presentation by Hutch Hutchison
Thursday, November 21, 2019 at 6:00 PM at the Goebel Center
Why does your image look flat? You have the composition down. The focus is great. But, the image just doesn't pop or might have minor distractions. Maybe you need to do more with post production techniques. Whether you use Lightroom or Adobe Camera Raw there are lots of very simple ways to improve the look of you photo, once you understand the tools and how to use them. Hutch Hutchison will demonstrate basic post processing techniques along with some simple enhancements to improve your images
