Photography Workflow & Digital Processing Computer Workshop    |    Weekday or Weekend  

You have a camera and like to shoot images. Before digital imaging, we used to have to process our images in the darkroom.

Processing film and printing photographs took years to master and learn.   Now, believe it or not, we still have to do the same, just differently.  We use our Digital Darkroom, our Computers and Laptops to process our images and our printers to print the images.
