Post-processing with intent II - The videos

With more than 4.5 hours of video, you will learn to use post-processing with purpose and coherence.  

Finally, a series of videos which do not only show you the HOW, but mainly the WHY. This is why even if Adobe Lightroom is used in the videos, you will be able to apply all the discussed points to whichever post-processing software you use. These videos explain how to develop the sensitivity to what an image needs and how to use post-processing in order to get there.

  • I have finished going through your material; a huge step forward in my photography.
    Now I have a conceptual and artistic framework to use for capture and processing; I can't tell you how constructive that is.
    Before I was working on technical improvements in isolation, and feeling quite frustrated.
    And now I can't wait for your printing and Photoshop e-books and videos.
