Learn basic color and light treatment techniques and create an aesthetic language in your photo essays

A course by Carol Lopes

Some of this course’s units and videos were updated in June 2020 to offer you a more detailed view of the teacher’s workflow and to improve your experience.

A photograph is capable of transcending visual language and communicating ideas and emotions, but to achieve this, good post-production is essential. In this course, Carol Lopes, an expert in image processing, will show you how you can turn a series of images into a properly structured and edited photo essay, using simple basic resources.

Throughout this course, you will post-produce a set of images with which you will give life to a photographic essay. You will start from a briefing to the final result that you can print or publish on your website and social networks. Prepare to take your photos to another level, managing to express what is behind each one and giving coherence to your project.
