Ready to fully unleash the power of Photoshop/Lightroom & take your star photography post processing to the next level? I have designed an efficient and affordable online group workshop that will teach all of the necessary skills required to process a broad range of night photographs. I provide multiple dates to ensure one of the workshops will fit your schedule.
Together we will be post processing some of my favorite star shots and learning each of the skill sets provided below along the way.
My entire star photography post processing workflow including the following programs and topics.
Please keep in mind this is an intermediate skill level class. Some knowledge of Photoshop & Lightroom is required as described below.

I will be teaching this workshop in the form of a Google Hangout sharing my screen for you to watch as I process a camera RAW file of the Milky Way.

Along the way we will stop intermittently for questions, discussion and further learning.
