The Power of Adobe Camera Raw

£125
One of the first places you will see your camera file in all its glory after making the exposure will be in Adobe Camera Raw or Lightroom. Although the functionality of both programmes is almost identical, on this course we will be focussing on Adobe Camera Raw and how to best understand its basic controls.

It is at this point in the photographic journey that we lay the foundations of what the finished photograph will be, and an understanding of the tools is critical to this process. Also essential is grasping how the tools work on conjunction with each other to bring about gradual, but profound changes.

We will set out how the controls directly relate to the histogram, and how this relationship should be utilised rather than the histogram simply being a reference point for checking for correct exposure and clipped highlights and shadows.

The Power of Adobe Camera Raw

 We will explore in detail the many tools at your disposal  

Beginning with the Basic Panel, we will set out the importance of how these sliders hugely influence the colours and tonality of your image even before considering localised adjustments. We will go into detail the many tools at your disposal such as the Graduated Filter, Radial Filter and how to best use the Adjustment Brush in a subtle but creative way, as well as sharpening, lens corrections, spot removal and the Hue, Saturation and Luminance Panel.

We believe that if you get it wrong at this stage of image editing, then as you move onwards you are essentially ‘recovering’ the file as opposed to ‘refining’ the file. Editing platforms have changed hugely over the years and this is an opportunity to get the most up-to-the-minute techniques with which to explore your images.

Our students love us

I have progressed from a very basic knowledge of some ACR elements to now understanding that all the various components are designed to interact.  The videos were clear and informative and have given me a significantly improved knowledge of the product.
TW
I very much enjoyed the ACR course.  I particularly enjoyed the way that the course was structured.  Small bite sized pieces which were clearly presented.  You unlocked the power on ACR which I knew was there.
KH
I have read loads of books, blogs, tutorials etc on post processing but I had totally missed the importance of maximising the benefits from ACR before going into photoshop.
