Teaching Landscape Photography and Photoshop Editing
Who Runs Photoshop Workshops?
Photoshop Workshops is run by David Osborn, a London photographer with over 35 years professional working experience as a news photographer with Reuters News Agency, followed by years of Corporate and annual report work then landscape photography. Seeing a lack of good quality and professional photography education available for the enthusiast photographer, David set up Photoshop Workshops to fill this demand for tuition.
What Photoshop Workshops Does?
Fine art landscape photography now requires both photography and Photoshop skills to create the final print. Therefore, David Osborn teaches both those skills on one workshop; so, you learn the complete process to create the images shown here. Photoshop Workshops also teach the aesthetic qualities that make good landscape photography, so the technical skills have a context. The workshops aim is to make you an excellent all-round landscape photographer.

These are one to one photography courses and Photoshop editing tuition in the UK or brought to your home overseas in the USA, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Austria, Switzerland, Norway, Sweden and Denmark, even as far as Dubai, Oman, Doha, Australia and New Zealand, where ever you wish to learn good landscape photography and Photoshop editing.
One Photography Workshop
Photography Technique. Two Subjects:
1. Visualization. Visualization is about ideas. Visualization is looking at the landscape in front of you and imagining it as a finished print. You judge if it is a good landscape photograph based on what it could become after editing in Photoshop, not on what is literally in front of you now. Good landscape photography is about creating personal artistic expression, not merely recording the literal scene.
2. Photography. Landscape photography is not the product of the camera, but Photoshop. Photography is turning your visualized idea into reality. The purpose of photography then, is only to record all the perfect assets you require for Photoshop editing; the ingredients to create the landscape photograph you imagine. Digital photography now makes photography an intermediate step, not the final step.
Photoshop Technique. Two Subjects:
1. Basic Photoshop Editing. The first part of creating good landscape photography is to composite all the assets required for our visualized idea into a single image; as if it were the most perfect raw file straight from the camera. We then polish this to be technically perfect as a straight image, but with little mood and soul. This becomes the foundation for the final advanced Photoshop editing techniques.
2. Advanced Photoshop Editing. This final step turns the literal record into a personal artistic statement and your creative interpretation. With the technically perfect to give the photograph a solid foundation, we enhance the light, mood, drama, tone and color without much regard to reality, stamping our personality on the image. The result is unique to you and makes your work stand out from the crowd.
Workshop Structure and Benefits
Both photography technique and Photoshop editing technique can be learnt easily, if the techniques are broken down into small and simple steps, learnt one at a time, then put back together as knowledge. The Landscape Photography Workshops use two teaching principles. Learn in logical order, start at the beginning with photography and slowly move through the process, teaching each step-in turn and tool as required. The gives each step a logical context and leaves nothing uncovered. The second is to teach each step with a demonstrate, practice, document and revise process. This makes for a simple methodical approach to learning, creating detailed notes in text form and layered Photoshop image files for after the photography workshop is completed.
Sometimes our progress stumbles and stalls. We need to look beyond ourselves to re-energize our progress and put us back on track or take us up to the next level for long term benefit. Photoshop Workshops does that, takes your landscape photography to the next level. The Landscape Photography Workshops give your landscape photography and Photoshop editing, a standard working template to follow for all your future photography. A simple and logical, repeatable method that allows you the freedom to impose your personal style at every stage, yet a technique that creates maximum technical and creative quality. Photoshop Workshops gives you, the control to create the images you want, not accept what the camera gives you. A lifetime benefit.
