During this period of lockdown, The Bird Song Cabin presents the perfect opportunity for budding young photography enthusiasts to master the art of digital post-processing without leaving the safety of your home.
With the advent of digital photography, a requirement for post processing was also reborn. What can be done with a camera on location amounts to about half of the process of creating a great image. The other half of creating a great image is done in a digital darkroom (on a computer).
Over the last few years we have trained many talented young photographers on our workshops and camps, however they lacked knowledge of how to post process their images to create truly remarkable photographs. Hence, The Bird Song Cabin presents the perfect opportunity for budding young photography enthusiasts to master the art of digital post processing.
The aim of the course is to introduce the importance of post processing your pictures to reveal the true beauty behind your images.
The workshop is led by award-winning wildlife photographer Phillip Ross who is exceptional with children and will ensure a fun, educational, interactive and creative time. Phillip will also ensure that there is a lot of individualised attention and will address all of your child’s doubts and questions.
Enrol your child today for a hands-on learning experience about the wonderful art and magic of post processing.

Any child, teen or young adult between the ages of 10 and 18 is welcome to enroll for this workshop. There are no other eligibility criteria, just a passion to learn photography.
My child is older or younger than 10 and 18. Can an exception be made?
The age group of the children has been carefully chosen keeping in mind the content and style of delivery. However, if your child is outside the age group and you’re interested in admitting him or her, please talk to us.
How many participants can be expected to attend?
A maximum of 30 students are expected. Bird Song Cabin USP is to provide as much individual attention and quality time to each participant as possible and thus the workshop strength has been kept low. We do not cater to very large groups per batch!
What are the requisites for the Workshop?
We recommend you download the free trial version of Adobe Lightroom. This trial version is valid for a period of 7 days. Therefore, we recommend that you download it the night before the start of the workshop.

The workshop will be taking place over Zoom Conference calls. Students over the age of 18 may use their own Zoom accounts, however, we strongly recommend that students 17 years and younger use their parents Zoom accounts. The Outback Experience will ensure that only those enrolled for the workshop be present on the conference and the conference locked once all participants are logged in.
