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 

Enhancing Single 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. 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 the advanced workshop).

Basics of time-lapse editing: Beginners

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!

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. Please note that this workshop is more suitable for Macs than PC's, but you if you are using a PC you can still follow and find similar softwares/techniques. 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 to play with if you don't own the necessary softwares. Also remember that this session is for ADVANCED levels only!
