Let's spend a fun day together playing in Photoshop! We'll work with layers, masking, textures, backgrounds, selections, filters, LAB color, and more. There will be time for image review, and for helping participants with individual creative projects. The focus will be on creating an individual Photoshop workflow that is fun and that energizes!
Harold Davis states: “I often get asked about my Photoshop techniques in the course of a workshop. In a general workshop that involves photography there just isn’t time to cover the vast multitude of creative Photoshop techniques that I use in depth. This workshop will provide a one-time opportunity to explore Photoshop as a creative medium and artistic partner component with digital photography. I will work with each participant to develop their personal Photoshop style and to process one or more of their own images using the techniques demonstrated in this workshop.”
