Punch up your images with this digital manipulation tutorial
Learn professional photo editing
I thought this was going to be straightforward - buying a digital camera and shooting great images, deleting the ones I didn't like and printing the rest.
But hell, my prints looked flat, I struggled with noise in the low-light shots, and the damn flash was no good over 2 meters!
Sound familiar? Don't throw away your new toy. It's a complicated piece of machinery, and deserves closer inspection, because it can deliver far more than what you've experienced this far. Have a look at the difference between these two pictures, for instance, and decide which one you prefer. That's how the new pictureperfect.co.za digital photo course can help you improve the colour, sharpness and tone of your pics. This does not include Photoshop, but lays the foundation for learning Photoshop as the principles taught are valid for most photo editing software packages.
Some feedback from our first users: "I worked through the course during one weekend and understand digital photography much better now." - Jan Hayden, Goodwood, Nikon 5700 user.
