Photoshop Workshops



Three Experience Levels:
…………………………….
PHOTOSHOP CS5/CS6
…………………………….
If you are fortunate enough to own the full Adobe DVD Photoshop package and you understand how to use your camera and have basic computer skills, this is probably the best workshop for you.


Topics include:

  • RAW vs JPG – what format to shoot
  • sizing and saving images for print and Internet
  • correcting exposure
  • enhancing shadow and light detail
  • correcting color
  • replacing and retouching
  • understanding layers
  • sharpening
  • redefining the composition

PHOTOSHOP ELEMENTS
…………………………….
If you own the Adobe Photoshop Elements package and you understand how to use your camera and have basic computer skills, this is probably the best workshop for you.


Topics include:

  • RAW vs JPG – what format to shoot
  • sizing and saving images for print and Internet
  • correcting exposure
  • enhancing shadow and light detail
  • correcting color
  • replacing and retouching
  • understanding layers
  • sharpening
  • redefining the composition


If you are just beginning with Photoshop, I recommend you buy the Photoshop Elements program. Elements is perfectly capable of doing most of the photo editing you will need to do and it is much more affordable. Another consideration is that Adobe has moved to a subscription model for distributing Photoshop which in my opinion is impractical and costly for the individual user. As you can see from the above list of topics, both programs can effectively process an image. A good chart that compares the two programs can be found HERE

DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY TRIP
…………………………….
If you are new to digital photography or you don’t understand how to use all the features of your camera, this is probably the best place to start.


Topics include:

  • MegaPixels and sensors
  • RAW vs JPG – what format to shoot
  • getting past “Auto”
  • understanding ISO
  • understanding f-numbers – depth of field
  • understanding shutter speed – stopping action
  • composition in the field
  • using available light
  • choosing the right lens

My workshops are designed for photographers who want to know more about how to control the creative process – from camera to digital darkroom - how to make photographs, not just take pictures.
