About this Course
Do you ever take shots of some great building or landmark, amazed at its grandeur and scale, then feel a bit disappointed when you see your photo on screen? The building is not in proportion, verticals are not straight, it just doesn't feel the same as it did when you were standing in front of it. Well this class will show you how to fix this!

In this video, professional photographer & Adobe Certified Lightroom expert Joe Houghton takes you through a complete edit on an afternoon photo shot of the Houses of Parliament in London, England. This is a typical shot that many tourists would get of this well known landmark, but with a bit of editing, it is transformed into a wow image!

Featuring the iconic Big Ben, in just a few minutes, Joe shows you how to :

Correct distortion to get the building vertical
Make complex selections to adjust the buildings and sky
Bring out colours and tones in the stonework and sky
Use radial filters to brighten up the clock-faces on the tower
Crop to a panoramic format to accentuate the scene and eliminate distracting elements
... and lots more tips and tricks to help you make your own shots amazing
In just a few minutes editing, you can transform your shot with easy to use techniques that work! No previous knowledge required - just follow along and apply the techniques to your own shots and turn them into masterpieces!

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
