So n paar maande terug het ek die geleentheid gehad om n baie bekende Zaleb paartjie af te neem, Christie en Nico Panagio! Persoonlik hou ek nie baie van die woord zaleb nie maar let’s keep it local soos almal se!
Dit was heerlik om saam met die twee te werk en hulle is nog so verlief op mekaar, dis kosbaar! Dankie aan die span by Finesse veral vir Annelize! Ek het al van te vore saam met Christie gewerk en dis altyd fantasties om saam met haar te werk, what a pro! Dankie julle!
URGENT UPDATE! Our venue has been moved, please see below!
Officially yes this is happening on the 25th of May at the beautiful Nooitgedacht Estate in Stellenbosch! It will be a full day event so please book as soon as possible to get your seat, limited space is available. Please email me to book a seat or leave a comment below.
R1200 for a full day introduction course to Adobe Lightroom. Note this is specifically for beginners with no prior knowledge of Lightroom, this will set you up to start working and learning as you work in LR. (Knowledge of other editing programs essential, even if it is basic knowledge of what levels, exposure, saturation, sharpness etc. is) WE will specifically be looking at a real world working scenario and editing of specific photos in a RAW vs Jpeg basis. We will be shooting a series of specific images for the course that will simulate what might happen at a wedding or shooting an event and how to deal with those images in an editing environment.
Course will run from 8:30AM till around just after 5PM.
– Jpeg vs RAW in LR
– Importing – Exporting
– Editing in the Library
– Editing in Develop
– Syncing settings
– Tagging photos (ratings and color labels)
– Keyboard shortcuts and some hidden ones
– Practical exercises to learn on the go
Refreshments and lunch is included! Bring a laptop with a working version of Lightroom and your camera! Yes we are gonna start the day with a mini shoot!
So what makes me so qualified to be teaching Lightroom to people? That’s a good question, well I have been working with LR since the first beta version came out! I have tried and worked with almost every other RAW conversion editor out there, from Phase One to Bibble to DxO to ACDSee to DPP to Nikon ViewNX and even Lightfast and have found LR to be the most efficient with the best quality output. I also have over 14 years experience in working with Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Camera Raw. I am a full-time working photographer since 2002. I have also been teaching martials arts and self defense classes since 2009 so I am quite proficient in setting up and working out course modules. So in a nutshell, yes I am very qualified!
Thanks to the gals from Junebug for believing in my work, big hugs all around. (Although, looking at my interview I can’t help but wonder what medication I was taking that day??) lol
Before you gleem away at this ridiculously beautiful bride I thought I’d mention that I gonna try and change my bloggin schedule a bit. I know you guy really like viewing images that inspire or evoke emotions but you know what, blogging is hard work and it takes up a lot time, partly due to the fact that it does not come naturally to me, I much prefer eating sand 🙂 So with that in mind I thought I’d make my posts smaller but more regular, so maybe once a week instead of once in 2 months? All those in favor say: “Far oout!”
Now enjoy the pics!
For those of you following my blog, apologies for being late with posts. I have a busy month and a half. March was just a busy wedding time this year! Also I flew over to the UK to shoot a wedding there in April, got back just before the Royal Wedding and had to deal with all the lovely public holidays, which I enjoyed for the first time in almost 6 years! More on this in a separate post.
Without further a do, I give you Melissa and Ben! They had their recpetion at De Oewer in Stellenbosch and it was beautifully styled by the team from COORD, they did a blog post on their site about they day, click here to view it.
