The struggle to convey the true beauty of a scene through a photograph is commonly felt amongst many photographers. Even more difficult is translating that beauty captured in your camera to an amazing, polished finished image through editing. Navigating the endless sliders, layers, panels, icons and buttons of programs like Lightroom and Photoshop are a daunting task to many, and can lead to much frustration instead of enjoyment.
The solution? Learning from someone who's had to go through the same painful process, and has come out the other side! In this service I offer virtual post-processing instruction, where I edit your own images and take you along every step of the way. There are few things I enjoy more than helping people break through these barriers to improve their own photos. Whilst editing cannot fix a bad composition, tasteful and effective processing creates a drastic improvement in the final result of your images.
I can offer this to you wherever you are, as long as you speak English, have an email address and stable internet. During the session, I'll be sharing my screen to run you through how I'd edit your image, from RAW file preparation in Adobe Camera Raw, through to blending of necessary exposures all the way to a large amount of creative finishes in Photoshop for a sublime final product. Minimum session lengths are for one hour, though I'd recommend two to ensure we can cover everything effectively as I explain each step I'm taking, with time to ask any questions you may have along the way. At the end of the session, you'll receive a PSD file of the finished image as well as a screen recording of our time together for your own reference.

Once you have booked, I will get in touch as soon as I can to organise a time for our session together. Please allow for some time to respond in the case that I am in the field and unable to get back to you immediately. If you have any questions, qualms or queries, don't hesitate to get in touch via the contact page in the menu above, or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
"Ben, I want to say thank you for taking the time to show me how I can establish a really solid base workflow for my forest scenes. As we all know forest scenes can be extremely chaotic. Your methods for creating atmosphere and good separation will definitely be a part of my workflow on future edits." - Matt N
"Ben is highly proficient at editing from both a technical and artistic point of view. He understands colour theory and the nuances of balance in an image in terms of composition, light, colour and contrast - the things that elevate an image from a holiday snap to an artwork. And he's super patient at teaching the skills required to achieve the results." - Kerry L
