Aviation Photography: Post-Processing
with Moose Peterson
Join Moose Peterson as he takes you through his workflow for post-processing some of his favorite historical aircraft photos. Moose takes you through the basics of how he uses Bridge, Camera Raw, and Photoshop to finish his aviation photographs, and then each subsequent lesson builds on those basics and shows you how to tackle increasingly more complicated situations. In all cases Moose starts with the vision he had in his mind and his heart when he took the photo, and teaches you how to use the software to finish telling the story and evoke emotion in the final image. There's no slider for romance, so it is all on you to bring your own passion and vision to each step of the process. From enhancing drama to making the subject come alive, Moose shares his tricks of the trade for creating the types of photographs that have been the key to his success. BUY COURSE
