Landscape Photography Workshops with Photoshop Training
Landscape Photography Workshops
PhotoshopWorkshops, run by professional London photographer David Osborn. Landscape photography workshops teaching landscape photography and Photoshop as one landscape photography workshop. The photography workshop emphasis is on professional and high-quality landscape photography and Photoshop editing tuition. Landscape photography workshops worldwide, booked-on-demand.
David Osborn passes on his knowledge of landscape photography and Photoshop editing through workshops. The standard landscape photography workshop takes you through the whole process from the camera to Photoshop. Teaching you all the photography techniques to create the images shown here. The standard photography workshop can be altered to suit your needs, placing more emphasis on either the photography or the Photoshop subjects. Before any workshop, we will look at your images together, so we can discuss where you are now and what you would like to achieve. PhotoshopWorkshops is professional knowledge to help improve your photography and Photoshop skills.
All the photography workshops and London Photoshop courses are booked on demand, when you want them. They do not have preset dates and can be booked all year round. Standard photography workshops last eight days in Britain, eleven days outside Britain. The photography workshops are intended as private photography and Photoshop tuition on a one to one basis, however, I can also run small group workshops if you require. I do not put strangers together; you would nominate the group. There is a maximum of two workshops run per month. Booking early is essential due to the limited number of workshops possible to run each year. All tuition is with David Osborn in person.
The photography and Photoshop workshops can be held wherever you wish them. Brought to your home overseas for the convenience of keeping in touch with your own day-to-day business needs, or travelling with you to another country as a travel photography workshop. Combining an educational workshop with photographing some of the most beautiful destinations in Europe, full of history and character. Finally, the standard photography workshop held here in the British countryside. The workshops have total flexibility for you to learn what you want, when you want and where you want. Either as a standard workshop in Britain or custom workshop overseas.
Photography Workshop Subjects
Landscape Photography Workshops
Visualization and composition, teaches you how to think, see and feel pictures. The skill required of professional photographers. How to visualize the finished image in your mind before you photograph. How to turn your ideas into pictures before touching the camera. Learning this essential “think first, act second” approach will mean you take one photograph with a clear idea, not a hundred photographs without an idea. Visualization means creating good pictures regularly through intent, not randomly through luck. The workshops begin by asking “What makes good landscape photography?” The qualities we must aspire to. The rest of the time is spent learning how to achieve those qualities
The landscape photograph is a product of Photoshop, not the camera. We use the camera only as a means to record the best possible material for Photoshop. What we need in Photoshop to create our final photograph, controls what we photograph with the camera. We visualize the photograph in our mind, then photograph the assets we require. With the use of a tripod, we make sure all the exposures align in Photoshop. This frees us from having to get the final image in one exposure, in-camera. This opens up a whole new world of creative possibility which we factor back into the visualization stage; yet based on our Photoshop knowledge. All three subjects are tightly interwoven and inseparable.
In Photoshop we first collate, edit then composite all our assets to create a single photograph; as if it were the most perfect image straight out of the camera. As if the image was indeed photographed as a single frame, in-camera. This image is then polished to transform it into an optical illusion of a landscape feeling three-dimensional, with light, form, texture and spatial distance. Technically perfect but lacking mood. In the last Photoshop phase, we add the artistic layer to transform the technically perfect into a personal artistic statement containing light, mood, drama and atmosphere. Enhancing all those qualities listed in the tutorial titled “What makes good landscape photography?”.
Photography Workshop Locations
Landscape Photography Workshops
The standard photography workshop held in Great Britain. The workshop lasts eight days including travel days; six full days of learning. The workshops are held in self catering holiday cottages near the village of Betws-y-coed on the edge of Snowdonia National Park, Wales The photography workshop covers the whole process from the camera to Photoshop, but with greater emphasis on the Photoshop editing techniques. Photographs are taken as part of the workshop, but not to high portfolio standards due to the time limitations. British photography workshop can be transferred to an alternative British location if required. Good for concentrating on learning Photoshop.
The same photography workshop brought to your home outside Britain. This can be either the standard landscape photography workshop covering the complete process of landscape photography and Photoshop editing, or a more customized workshop concentrating on photography or Photoshop depending on your needs. Students can be beginners to advanced and provided we can converse in English, language should not be any problem. I have held numerous private workshops in Germany, France, Italy, Norway, Turkey, Dubai even Oman, where it was essential for clients to stay in touch with the day-to-day needs of their own businesses. Best option for your convenience.

Returning with a full set of beautiful portfolio quality images. The best option for good travel photography and relaxation to unwind.
Workshop Tuition: David Osborn
Professional London Photographer
Photoshop Training London
Photoshop Course London
Private London Photoshop training booked on demand when you need it, on a day-to-day basis. This is not a group classroom course but personal tuition with David Osborn at his home in north London. See map on the contact page. For multiple, consecutive days, I can travel to you in the UK or worldwide. Training for small groups can be arranged if required. Photoshop for photographers. Photographers wishing to learn the Photoshop editing skills to improve their photography. All the tuition involves working on real images to put the knowledge in context, not classroom theory. Before and after Photoshop retouching examples can be viewed on the Photoshop course London page.
The Photoshop course London, is happy to teach you Adobe Photoshop as a complete beginner, introducing you to the image editing software and the very basic features needed first. Adobe Photoshop offers far more tools than Adobe Lightroom and therefore allows greater control over your images. Adobe Photoshop is the only choice if you wish to create images at the very highest quality level. Photoshop may look complicated. It is very powerful software that can be used for many jobs. As photographers we do not need to learn every tool it offers. I can teach you the tools we need as photographers. Photoshop really is not complicated to learn, just requiring time and practice to get comfortable.
Students already familiar with Adobe Photoshop, the basic functions, tools and generally finding their way around the image editing software, may want to learn more advanced Photoshop skills. This may be in several different ways. On a more advanced technical level, subjects like advanced masking techniques or on a concept level, the Photoshop workflow for creating landscape images. Even on a more artistic level, exploring ways to use Photoshop for more creative expression. PhotoshopWorkshops is a resource for you to call on, to help improve both your photography and Photoshop editing skills. Anything that I can do myself, I am happy to pass on and teach. Just let me know your needs.

Short Break Photography Workshops
Three Day Group Photography Workshops in Europe
The short break photography workshops are three-day photography workshops with a group size of ten, held in a European city. The short break photography workshops cover my complete process of landscape photography and Photoshop editing. Everyone photographs the composition shown for that workshop and city, then we learn all the Photoshop editing as a group, step-by-step. We spend the remaining part of the three days slowly working through the Photoshop editing process, building up the documentation as we go. We also discuss the whole subject of Photoshop editing and landscape photography in general as we progress, so everyone leaves with complete knowledge.
The purpose of the short break photography workshops is to teach the workflow. When shooting landscapes, indeed architecture and many other subjects, the photographic and Photoshop problems and solutions remain the same for every image. The order that we work through creating an image in Photoshop remain the same for every image, no matter the subject. The only variables, are the small input decisions at the detail level e.g. curve settings; the overall process remains the same for every image though. I have developed a workflow that I use for all my own images that is systematic, containing a set number of steps in a refined order. This workflow, is what I will teach you.
We only take one photograph on the European short break photography workshops, then process that one image. By concentrating on only one image, it makes learning the workflow time efficient, cost effective, clear and precise. Learning the workflow is the purpose of the workshop, not the image itself. The workshop image and documentation become your working template for all your future images; the workshop image is only the means to that end. The short break photography workshops are one third the price of private one-week workshops that can be the next step to develop you skills further to more advanced and personal levels. Workshops can be taken as part of a general holiday.
