10 Essential Post-Processing Techniques That Every Landscape Photographer Needs to Know
with Scott Kelby
Building on his previous <a href="">landscape photography class</a>, Scott Kelby uses the photos he captured at Cannon Beach to teach you 10 essential post-processing techniques every landscape photographer should know. Starting from a simple example to get oriented to the tools, Scott takes you step-by-step through his Lightroom and Photoshop workflow to learn increasingly more advanced techniques. In this class you’ll learn how to evaluate each photo before processing, different ways to boost contrast, how to stitch multiple frames into a panorama, how to process realistic looking HDR images, how to sharpen to bring out detail, how to enhance washed out skies, and so much more! Be sure to watch the landscape photography class first so that you can see the process through from capture to finish! BUY COURSE
