Digital Post-processing Workshop

Finding hidden colours in photos

Pouring life in photos

Ethical ways of post-processing

Digital Post-processing is somewhat similar to Developing the film negative !!
That is why it is often referred to as “Digital Dark Room”. The workshop focuses on understanding the universally accepted methods and norms – DP BestFlow.

The photographs taken by a digital camera are often displayed with midtone predominance. It is a common feeling for a photographer to feel let down when the photograph is seen on a computer – it just doesn’t look like what was seen!
The good news is that more often than not, the “striking” part of the scene will still be hidden inside the image data.
Good post-processing is the art of deciphering this “hidden” information and then bringing it out to get your story right.

  • Understanding the digital image
