1-on-1 post-processing online workshops

''Recently I participated in several online post-processing workshops given by Adrien Mauduit. High quality is the best summary I can give, both for the topics included, as for the excellent way to conduct them. The technique I have already learned is applied in my post-processing. I recommend both participants and experts to participate in Adrien's online workshops. Thank you, Maestro!!!'' Xavier from Facebook reviews 

We offer 1-on-1 online astrophotography workshops via Zoom throughout the week.  

This workshop is offered all year round. It is a one-on-one, appointment-like, 1.5 hour online class (Zoom) that teaches you post-processing for astrophotography. There are two levels (beginners and advanced) and three subjects you can choose for a single class (astro photo, astro panoramas or astro time-lapses). Those are detailed below.

To proceed, please book a slot in our schedule (click on 'Book now'), and let us know (via a separate email or at the start of the session) the desired level and subject. All levels and subjects are the same duration (1h30) and price (NOK 1500), and we are very flexible when it comes to the classes. We usually accommodate your needs and will customize the session according to your skills to satisfy you. During the session, the screen can also be recorded and sent to you afterwards, so you don't have to worry about notes!

 

For each level and subject, you will learn to use Adobe Lr, Ps, along with other softwares that we can touch on (PTGui Pro, APP, PixInsight, Nebulosity 4 for Mac, Timelapse+, Lr Timelapse, Topaz...). Depending on the level and subjects, we will go over our workflow for each, teaching you techniques like stacking, blending, histogram stretching, color management, sharpening, star reduction, stitching, timelapse assembly and much more. 

Once we receive confirmation of booking and payment, we will send you the session details (date and Zoom link). The sessions are one-on-one, so if you want to invite one or more people to the session (provided they have the same level), please send us an email to establish time and pricing. Please refrain from booking for the same day (at least a day's notice) as our schedule is tight. Thank you.

Should you have any question regarding the workshops that we offer, please send us an email. 

NB:
PLEASE NOTE that for these sessions, we have a no refund policy. We can try and reschedule at your convenience if an issue occurs with the original date. Please make sure that you really want to attend before booking. If you are unsure, ask us in an email. 

We look forward to having you in one of our sessions!

Enhancing astrophotos: Beginners

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 Adrien will break down his 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. You can chose for us to work one of your picture or one of ours. For the latter, please send us your material in advance of the workshop. This session is for beginners only and will only teach about the basics of Lightroom. It will NOT include things like stacking, blending, local adjustments, gradient tool, advanced coloring, star reduction techniques found in other softwares (go to the advanced workshop). We can also touch on the basics of Adobe Photoshop if you so desire.

Astrolapse workflow : advanced

We hold this workshop very dear since astrolapse is Adrien's specialty. He has personally crafted a seamless workflow in order to get the best out of each single astro-picture without compromising details and colors. During the session, we will cover basic and advanced techniques to batch edit photos (including medium-format astrophotos) in Lr, export them, go through TDLF (noise and flicker reduction), assemble them (Sequence for mac), choose the adequate format, quality and frame rate, and some polishing techniques in Final Cut Pro X. It is also a possibility to do the whole process using LrTimelapse. Please note that this workshop is more suitable for Macs than PC, but you if you are using a PC, you can still follow and find similar softwares/techniques. You can chose for us to work one of your sequences or one of ours. For the latter, please send us your material in advance of the workshop.
