Intro to the Assignments

5 minutes

In this section I will go through the assignments and what the outcomes should be.

Assignment One - Four Ways to develop an image

1 hour

In this assignment we want to teach students how the development section works and what each part can do through experimentation. The student will be required to take a single image and develop in four different ways. This will also teach them to consider how the development of an image can impact the images objective.

Assigment Two - Cropping affects objective.

45 minutes

In this assignment we are getting students to look at how framing/cropping an image impacts and affects the message the image is trying to convey. you will learn how the cropping tool works and be given examples of different crops and my interpretations of how they affect the image.

Assignment Three - Masking to develop part of an image.

45 minutes

In this assignment, we will cover how masking works in Adobe Lightroom and look at some sample images you can give students for them to practice on. This will give them a better understanding of how to look at an image and understand what sections of the image can be corrected in Lightroom.

Recap and finishing up

10 minutes

To fining up I will have all the assets you will need for teaching and a look at the handout structure.

About the team

Angelo Boutsalis


My job is to help people find solutions in the Photo and Video industries. I am a Classicly trained photographer meaning I actully studied photography for 3 years and shot large format film. this led me to the film industry where my lighting and camera knowledge was highly valued. I now spend most of my time consulting, doing one on one training, Youtube tutorials and doing workshops for brands like RED Digital Cinema, DJI, LightPro. Training people is a great reason to stay up to date with technology and gives me the opportunity to do what I love.
