Beginner's Photo Shop
Group will meet in the Focus Room of the Attic. This group will only study Photo Shop and no other post-processing program. Program to be used will be CS 6, but any version of Photo Shop is acceptable. (Please know which version you have).
Meeting will not last over 2 hours, preferably 7 - 8:30 pm
First meeting will be May 1, with meetings continuing on an every other 2 week basis.
Laptop with any version of Photo Shop must be downloaded on the computer.
Meetings will consist of part video, part discussion, and part hands on utilizing individual laptops. And, specific members in the club, highly skilled and willing to help teach, will be asked to join this group to help teach, help with hands on, and help answer questions, provide explanations an clarifications, etc..
Group will learn as a team, at a slow pace, and will not move forward until everyone in the group is comfortable with and knows the subject of the day. The hope is that everyone in that group, in time, will be able to maneuver around in Photo Shop easily and will have a clear understanding of all the tools available.
When individuals of this group (the team) feel they are ready to "fly on their own", a club "Post-Processing" Focus Group will be initiated on one of the opposite Wednesday evenings at 7 pm and all from this group and others from the club who have Photo Shop experience and knowledge will be invited to join, creating the new Post-Processing FG. This will consist only of those with PS knowledge at that time, but the newly formed Photo Shop FG, will be blended with the next Beginners FG on Elements or Lightroom once those complete their series of meetings and are comfortable. In this manner is how this FG will grow.
Each Beginner's group, as a team, will decide when it is ready to "move on" to the next step, and when ready to move away from the Beginners Level.
The Post-Processing Focus Group will evolve and it will become one with many PP programs. Whenever at least 5 members are ready for a Beginners FG in the futue, one will be started again.
If you missed this first "forming the focus group" meeting...and meet the criteria stated above, please join us on May 1. But, you will need to notify me early to make sure I have enough seating for everyone.
