Part 1 Introduction

I have been using NIK software since I helped launch it in Australia in the late Naughties! 

NIK. for those of you who don't know, is a set of eight "Plug-in" programs that attach to Adobe Lightroom/Photoshop/Photoshop Elements/Affinity or can be used as stand-alone programs.

Among the programs are amazing filters and effects that can turn day into night, make your image look like a vintage print, or make a single image into an HDR image.

The programs are extremely easy to use and relatively inexpensive (it's a one-off Payment ) and there is a 30-day trial available.

The Class includes working with

NIK Colour contains filters for tone, colour and contrast as well as special effects and filters to replicate film.

NIK Silver Efex black and white software that can turn any boring image into a masterpiece of Film-Noir, Includes filers to replicate almost every film type made from the beginning of photography to recent years.

NIK Analog Efex-Make your images look like they were taken with cameras from, the past (you can even add scratches and water damage!

NIK Viveza-Colour boosting software

NIK Define-One of the world's best noise reduction programs

NIK HDR Efex-Creat inspiring High Dynamic Range images from one file rather than taking a series on location (The preferred file type is RAW but the software can work with JPEGs as well)

Who am I

My name is Alwyn Hanson, I have been teaching photography for over 30 years in Melbourne. I have worked with and taught over 30,000 people including new users as well as training groups such as Victoria Police,  MFB and many Government Departments. 

I believe in teaching photography in a simple, logical way rather than boring lectures. My classes are short, practical and complete. Most are three hours long (My experience is longer classes don't always achieve good results)

I teach photography and software based on classes that have run with great success in my previous position as manager of Michaels Media School in the Melbourne CBD. 

I am passionate about teaching and want you to use YOUR camera to take great photos.

I can teach you in a class or if you prefer at your home, cafe or local park. 

You tell me what you want and I can make it happen.

Why Alwyns Photo School is different.

We believe in working WITH all the special features on the camera,NOT turning them all off and going manual. The camera companies have spent millions in development, so why reinvent the wheel. We can teach YOU how to take great photos on YOUR own digital camera.

Alwyns Photo School, making great photography easier.
