In this 3-hour intensive, Toni Hafkenscheid will walk participants through a comprehensive digital workflow from RAW to final image in Photoshop. Divided into two parts, participants will first learn how to capture the best quality image possible using their own camera in a studio environment employing tools such as histograms, ETTRs, Grey card and Colour charts.
