Digital Photography Group

The photography editing workshop began over a year ago and after a lull of about 8 months has started up again.

Usually we take photographs of the surrounding area, or sometimes the staff take photographs whilst on community leave using a digital camera. We then transfer the photographs onto the computer and using the software package Adobe Photoshop we edit the photographs. Editing involves changing the picture I'm working on, adding text, texture, sharpness deleting or adding elements or doing many more things. The workshop is therapeutic as it is creative and involves getting out and about to take the photographs and educational as it involves using computer software.
