PHO NC II Module 3 (COC 3 and 4): Performing Post-Capture Processing and Presenting Finished Product

This are the third and fourth of four modules in the Core Unit of Competency in Photography NC II.

In the film photography era, the negatives had to be developed and printed. Retouching of images at that time could be done during the developing stage in the darkroom and/or after the images had been printed. Now that digital photography is used in the industry, the workflow has slightly changed—the retouching or editing of photos are done digitally in the computer before they are printed.

In these modules, you will learn the post-capture processing workflow in digital photography—from downloading your images, organizing your image files, selecting and creating proof sheets for your photos for client presentation, globally enhancing your images, basic portrait retouching, and delivering your final product to your client.

This module is perfect for photography enthusiasts with knowledge in photography who:

  • wish to have a formal training on basic portrait retouching using Adobe Photoshop
  • are considering a career as a photographer
  • are considering a career as a portrait retoucher

Full Online, Self-paced, with consultations via video conferencing platforms.
