Photoshop For Photographers TUITION, 5 WEEKS

THIS IS A 5-WEEK PROGRAM. $80 FEE, NOT FREE! THE LAST CLASS IS ON OCT. 9. 5 Tuesdays starting Sept. 11.

This 5-week program will give participants core skills in bringing out the best in their images. We will visit some Photoshop basics, but the THRUST of the course will be in intermediate-to-advanced topics. We will start with the [b][u]powerhouse combination[/u][/b] of "Adobe Bridge + Camera Raw + Photoshop actions." Understanding how these tools relate to each other is fundamental to successful photo editing productivity. We will then move on to: Layers and layer opacity Layer masks Layer blend modes Adjustment layers Layer effects * Making and managing Selections * Smart Objects * Lab color CMYK color in portraits * Filters and strategies Sharpening and enlarging * Grayscale conversion * Retouching skin Clone tool and patterns Healing brush * Calibration and hardware profiles Color profiles, obtaining, installing, using, and understanding Soft proofing Gamut warning * Automation This is an ambitious topic list. Anticipate STRONG involvement from every member of the class, with many discussions and lots of examples. Participants must bring a laptop computer with Adobe Photoshop installed, and their primary camera/lens combination. A trial version of Photoshop is OK, but it will not last through 5 weeks.
