LIVING LENS Post Processing & Editing Retreat

Our weekend retreat is designed to demystify post-processing and teach you the skills and techniques to turn your shots into images worthy of hanging on your walls and sharing with your friends.


Why are images from the PRO’s so much better than yours? It's the most asked question. The answer is simple, Post-Processing!

All images need to be processed. 50-years ago we used chemicals and a dark room. Today we use digital tools like Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop and LUMINAR AI.


Should you process your digital images? That's the million dollar question. The answer is...ABSOLUTELY!


Join us for a few relaxing days surrounded by Snowdonia and let us show you how easy it can be to reveal the drama in your landscape shots.

I (Simon) started my editing career back in 2006 while travelling through Peru and picked up a copy of Adobe's Photoshop. The program was overwhelming. Today I can edit an image from start to finish in just minutes. That’s what I want to share with you. Simple, clear and powerful editing tips that work.

Read on below for the whole picture.


This is a 3-day, 3-night inclusive group retreat. The weekend will be limited to just 12 people, to make sure that Lisa and I have enough time with each student.


Some Of What You'll Learn:

✔️ Raw file processing (Adobe Lightroom, Camera Raw or Luminar AI.

✔️ Create images with Colour balance and harmony.

✔️ Colour correction

✔️ Correct in-camera mistakes.

✔️ Straighten horizon lines.

✔️ Remove unwanted or distracting elements in a photo.

✔️ Redirect light.

✔️ Create focus and impact.

✔️ How to blend images seamlessly.

✔️ Post-processing techniques to create atmosphere or drama. Orton effect, light bleeding, dodging.

✔️ Techniques to correctly sharpen images both globally (all the image) or locally (parts of an image).

✔️ How to prepare and export your images for the internet and social media so they look their best.

✔️ and, much, much more.

If I were to make a recommendation, it would be don't hesitate. By any means, then read the books and scan the social channels but if you want to have a truly social (meaningful) experience, then spend some time with Lisa and Simon and let them distill two lifetimes of experience and learning into yours. They provide a genuine deeply personal experience in an environment that is fun and evocative with an intoxicating pace of enlightenment. Simply - best

Truly a foundational course (without being a ‘beginners’ course), I feel I can build on what I learned over this weekend and take it anywhere. And Simon and Lisa are great hosts.

I would highly recommend it to anyone with any interest in photography regardless of what camera gear or experience you have. Not only did I learn a lot about photography and editing, I also had an amazing time...
