Leading on from our previous Post Processing events – these sessions are designed to act as both a “Stand Alone” or “Continued Learning”building on what you have already learnt previously. Welshot events are great for getting those fantastic images – but what do you do with them once you get them off your camera. To help answer that question we are running a post processing day introducing you to the basics of processing and explaining the options you have which will enhance your images.
