About This Class

Hi, my name is Sophia and I’m a freelance photographer specialising in fashion, portraiture and events. I’ve been working in photography for a number of years and in the last twelve months have taken to teaching about photography across the web.

This course is aimed at beginner photographers who are looking to develop their skills in photo editing, and we’re going to start with the very basics of editing. This course could also be useful for Instagrammers, content creators, graphic designers, etc., who are looking for an overview of how to edit photographs. 

In this class you’ll learn:

  • About the different types of editing and what they are used for/the benefits of using them
  • How to edit using Adobe Lightroom for Desktop (including operating basic Lightroom controls, such as highlights/shadows, tone curves, spot healing, presets etc.)
  • How to edit using free mobile apps, such as Snapseed and VSCO

You’ll find these simple to understand techniques effective in improving your photo editing and I can’t wait to see what you create throughout the class! Make sure to browse other students creations too and leave your feedback as it’s always nice to learn from each other.

You can get in touch with me via my website, Instagram or Twitter and I’d be happy to provide any feedback you might require!
