Today I attended a mini lecture by Andy Golpys from Made By Shape. His photography is wicked although I’m not really a massive fan of portrait photography, looking at his site slightly changed my mind as his work is so nice. He edits a picture so well and really gets good tones & colours. He went through with us some tips & tricks for editing photos using photoshop to retouch imagery. It was really fast paced but I picked up some cool things and some really crucial things I’ve wanted to know how to do for a while like editing photos in batches and recording your own actions.
At the end he again really quickly went through lightroom with me and showed me the ropes as I’m quite new to it. I found this super helpful and already feel that I can use these programmes a lot more quickly and efficiently.
Something that most of the hints seemed to be based on where working faster and he basically showed me that the way I have been working is super slow and I’m ver happy I attended this. Also it seems to be perfectly well timed with things happening outside of university like placement opportunities for me,
