About this Course

This class takes you through an easy to follow, structured set of editing steps to turn a typical sunset photo into an image of professional quality.

We edit the shot adjusting exposure, apply some quite complex adjustments to the bridge to brighten it up against the background and use radial filters to bring out specific areas of the shot which need localised brightening.

Although I use Adobe Lightroom, the techniques can be applied using any photo editing application, and I've split out each different technique into separate sections so they can be watched and applied more easily. Why not watch the class with your own photo open in your own editing application and follow along, applying the techniques I show to your own image? It's really easy - go on - have a go!
