Getting photos to look right can be challenging. Details get lost in shadows and highlights, the sky is washed out, unwanted elements or people can't be avoided, it isn’t sharp and more. Luckily many of these problems can be fixed in post-processing and/or by the kinds of exposures you take, which Susie will demonstrate in this workshop.

She'll help you recognize whether or not a photo can be salvaged and how to do so using some of her favorite Photoshop and Lightroom tools. Some prior knowledge of either or both applications is recommended. If possible, please bring a laptop with the applications installed and photos to work on.
