Today is a good day.
Today I get to come ‘full circle’ on something that has been on my creative wish list. I have wanted to do a series of editing (or post processing) video tutorials for a while now. As the Photography Studio Manager at Londolozi, I get so much joy out of working with guests on their images that they have captured here. I get heralded as a ‘magician’, but really all I am is a photographer with a toolbox full of tools that I know how to use. The goal for this series is for you to become editing magicians, too, and for you to be able to learn and practice your own post processing at home. To those of you who have visited and spent time with me in the studio, I am happy to fulfil a promise that I have been making to all of you by beginning these tutorials so that you can always feel connected to the Londolozi Creative Hub, and the greater Londolozi family, whenever you want to –no matter where you are in the world.
I am not sure how long this series will last. There are so many new and exciting ways to play with post processing (which is one of the things that I love about photography), and I can’t wait to explore them all with you.
Grab a cup of tea and a note-pad (if you wish) and watch the first of what I hope will be many tutorials that will kick-start your own editing flow.
Please do let me know in the comments section if you have any further questions on this basic flow, or if you have any particular features you would like me to cover in upcoming tutorials.
