Ask any photographer, having a quick simple digital workflow can save hours of pain and wasted time. This workshop is designed to help navigate through Adobe Lightroom with some added tips and tricks to see you on your way moving into Photoshop.

Lightroom is a powerful program and can be quite daunting to learn in one go, hence we break the process down from the fastest way to import, select, edit and export your images into small bite-size chunks that are easy to understand and will really help. We will also look at some of the elements of Photoshop and what the differences are between the two programs... are you using the right one for your needs?

Key Learning points:
Understanding Lightroom
Lightroom v's Photoshop
The right tools for the right job
Colour & Monochrome
Highlights and Shadow control
Batch Processing
Exporting & Importing
App's & Extensions.
 The tools & develop module

As photographers, we all have a journey learning about light. This Fujiholics workshop is all about looking at creating light using speedlights, studio strobes, and other light sources. We will cover the basics of setting up lights, understanding modifiers all the way to setting up and shooting with HSS and blending ambient light with flash. After the demonstrations showing the classic portrait lighting styles, this workshop will leave you with a rounded knowledge of what you can do with light.

This is an interactive workshop featuring a female model. This is a Fujiholics event taking place at Wilkinson Cameras' Liverpool Learning Suite. Please note, tickets are sold directly by Fujiholics and you will be redirected to the Eventbrite website.

This workshop takes place at The Liverpool Learning Suite. Tea, coffee, etc. will be provided and attendees will be given time for lunch. Lunch is not provided, but our central location means that there are many lunch options within a short walk. If you wish to bring your own packed lunch, then we do provide a fridge and guests are welcome to eat their lunch in The Learning Suite. 

The workshop starts at 11.00am promptly running until 4.00pm.

Geoff Harris, Editor, Digital Camera, 2009-2014
Dave Kai Piper is one of the most interesting and creative portrait photographers I have met in my 15 plus years in the UK photographic industry. Dave is very technically 'on it' but wears his considerable skill lightly, and very much emphasises feeling and creativity as well as pure technique. He's an inspired teacher, funny, kind and stimulating, and I simply love his work.

Nigel Atherton, Group Editor, Time Inc
Dave is one of the most enthusiastic and talented young photographers working in the UK today. His passion for portraiture is matched by a great eye, a feel for light, and an easy rapport with his models that enables him to capture their beauty and sensuality. Above all he's incredibly prolific – he never seems to stop taking photos, and is always eager to try out the next new camera or accessory.

Ray Fitchett (Regional Manager) SIGMA Imaging (UK) Ltd.
Dave Kai-Piper the founder and owner of Ideas & Images is an extraordinary dynamic young photographer who has already made an impact with his work and his writing. Dave has developed a good relationship with several companies – and has selected and uses a range of SIGMA lenses in his day to day work. Over the past few years he has worked with both SIGMA UK and SIGMA USA and produced stunning images that we now use on occasion in our corporate PR & marketing. Dave is happy to take time out from his own creative photo business to teach and demonstrate his techniques at Photo Events and Camera Clubs. The added benefit is that along with his partner Peliroja (Pro Model) they can source and manage models and make-up artists and control either for a few hours or a full days shoot. They tailor the tuition and presentation to the group size and capabilities of the attendees offering a stimulating and value for money experience.

Dave Kai Piper is an outstanding photographer whose sense of light, composition, storytelling and ability to collaborate with others leads to a fabulous product whether he is holding the camera or directing others. I have had the pleasure of being coached by him, also in post-production where he is undoubtedly the best I have ever personally seen. As his company name says, he has great IDEAS and makes stunning IMAGES..
