My name is Francisco Vasto (Frank for short) and I recently accepted the leader role for Charlotte Photoshop Studio Meet-Up group.

This is a great group with lots of experience in portrait photography, studio lighting and post production with Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom.

I hope to continue to add new members who are interested in learning more about photography and will value the experience of our core group. I hope to leverage talents and expertise that go beyond the core capabilities we have worked on this past year. In particular, I am hopeful to find members with digital art experience using Corel Painter to add a whole new dimension to our post production capabilities.

I truly enjoy the ongoing learning experience and continued growth.

We now have a wonderful core set of workshops, which are beneficial to new photographers and experienced photographers looking for tips and tricks. Our core workshops include:
• DSLR Basics: Taking your camera out of automatic
• Lightroom Basics
• Photoshop Basics, Intermediate and Advanced
• Photography as a Business: Start-Up, Pricing and Marketing strategies
• Studio Lighting Basics
• Exploring Portrait Posing
• Senior Portraits: Session basics, putting your senior at ease, creative lighting, and post production tips for enhancing images with digital art

We are currently working to calendar 2014 sessions and will have dates posted soon.

For those looking for a ‘personal’ touch – we do offer individual sessions on the following topics:
• DSLR Basics: Taking your camera out of automatic
• Lightroom Basics
• Photoshop Basics, Intermediate and Advanced
If you are interested in an individual session – email me at
