About This Class

How do you make your digital images look like film?

This insightful one-hour class with celebrity portrait photographer Elizabeth Weinberg will walk you through exactly what goes on behind those Instagram filters and editing programs, so you can understand the fundamentals of light, color, grain, saturation, and – in essence – make your digital photos not suck.

Elizabeth walks through the 4 telltale signs of ugly digital photos:

  • No grain
  • Terrible skin tones and highlights
  • Chromatic aberration
  • Oversaturation

...and how to fix these issues quickly and easily. 

This class is perfect for photographers of all levels – whether you're just starting out, or if you've been shooting for years and want to hone your processing style.

Join Elizabeth in her digital darkroom (Adobe Camera Raw) for a crash course in photo editing, and leave with the skills and confidence to add a signature cinematic style to your own portraits.

interesting! thanks!
Easy to follow and packed with loads of useful tips. Thanks Elizabeth!
If you are more basic level or just started learning photography then this course makes sense for you. If you are more advanced the things talked about in this course should be clear. The same process can be done in Lightroom. Some sliders have not the same precision like the Camera Raw version but still its possible. So don't be afraid to use this in Lightroom too. Overall interesting look into this topic about digital raw files and how to get more out of your files to create more this vsco typical look. I hoped for a more extensive course.
