ONLINE WORKSHOPS: BEGINNERS

ENHANCING SINGLE ASTROPHOTOS

Great compositions can be hard to capture but sometimes processing single astrophotographs can be even more challenging because you will be struggling between bringing up contrasts, minimizing noise while preserving details. During this workshop I will break down my workflow step-by-step as an example, teach about the basics of Adobe Lightroom, talk about balanced composition and advise you on how you should use the adjustment sliders to get a great-looking final astro picture. Note that we will use a single RAW milky way picture during the session that you will receive in a package, but it will also contain a free RAW aurora picture that you will be able to train on.  Also remember that this session is for beginners only and will only teach about the basics of Lr. It will NOT include things like local adjustments, gradient tool, advanced coloring, star reduction techniques (go to my advanced workshop).

ASTROPANORAMA BASICS

In this workshop we cover the basics of astropanorama editing. We will cover preparing your panels in Adobe Lightroom, quickly go over stitching them (PTGui Pro and Adobe Ps CC 2018). Note that you will be provided with a fully stitched RAW panorama image to continue the rest of the session, the primary focus being the post-editing of this photo and not the stitching part. We will then go over some basic post adjustments in Lr playing around with sliders and local adjustments. Also keep in mind that we will exclusively work on a milky way panorama. Additionally remember that this session is for beginners only and will only teach about the basics of Lr.

BASICS of time-lapse editing

Putting images back to back can help you create stunning astroscenes in motion. However the rules that applied to still photography are not the same as the ones that apply to astrolapse! In this course we will learn how to do basic batch edits in Lr to your sequence of photos, export them, assemble them (Sequence for Mac as an example), choose the adequate format, quality and frame rate.  Note that we will use a RAW milky way picture sequence during the session that you will receive in a package, along with an assembled version of that sequence. Also remember that this session is for beginners only and will only teach about the basics of Lr. It will NOT include things like advanced coloring, star reduction techniques (go to my advanced workshop).
