Frequently Asked Questions
What level of experience is required for joining this course?
Basic knowledge of Lightroom or similar software is recommended. This course does not go into importing photos and keywording etc. While beginners are welcome, you do require some basic knowledge of software in general, copying files, handling files etc.
What software do I require to join this course?
You need the Adobe Photography plan (about 10$ per month) which includes both Photoshop and Lightroom Classic. It’s possible to join with other versions, but you might miss functions. Other than that, for the Luminar part of this course you need Luminar (you can join with the trial version).
Does it matter if I work on a Mac or PC?
I personally work with Macs so this course was recorded on a Mac. But you will have no issues with joining with a PC. The shortcuts are just slightly different (alt = option etc).
Will this course be outdated in a while?
While software may be outdated, all the techniques used in this course will be timeless. I’ve been using them for years already. New software might make certain things easier. When big updates happen, I might add videos in the future.
Do I need an Action Panel in Photoshop for Luminosity Masks?
Having an action panel to quickly create masks is recommended. It doesn’t really matter which one you use, but I use the TKAction Panel (you can download it for free). In this course you’ll also learn how to make these masks manually.
Get The Most Out Of Your RAW Files
This course is all about getting the most out of your RAW files through various postprocessing techniques. If you’re interested to learn basic and advanced postprocessing techniques to get your images to the next level, then this course is for you.
I have no secrets. Everyone has their own vision and the way they see things. Even if I teach you all of my techniques, you’ll still not create the same images, simply because every person is different.
To me, a photo serves as a memory. And sometimes I romanticise that moment by adding touches of beauty, playing with colour and enhancing light. However, the moment stays intact. I don’t replace skies, add milky ways, or any different elements. Simply because I want to portray the moment and the story. By changing the moment completely in postprocessing, the real moment or story, is gone.
