Steve Weinrebe is an Adobe Certified Instructor, award winning photographer, and author. Steve created the Photographic Toning presets for Adobe that have been part of Photoshop since CS6. He was one of the first instructors ever to be certified by Adobe to teach Photoshop, and he has won a Videographer Award for Photoshop tutorials. With his 35 year background as a professional photographer and 25 years teaching Photoshop to adult professionals, Steve enjoys poking holes in the notion that one must use conventional tools and techniques for either photography or for post-production in order to make great images. Steve shoots stock for Getty Images, and has produced an award winning children’s video. Steve is the author of “Irreverent Photo Tools for Digital Photographers”, and “Adobe Photoshop & the Art of Photography” (both published by Cengage).
This advanced workshop offers expert guidance for Photoshop users who have mastered the fundamentals and want to explore Photoshop’s most powerful, lesser-known features. If layers and masks are second nature and intermediate workshops no longer excite, this workshop opens the door to: advanced retouching techniques, silhouetting and advanced selection techniques, luminosity masks, clipping masks, vector masks, advanced blending options, masking with the gradient tool, extending tonal range by combining images, the relationship between masks, alpha channels, selections, paths and quickmasks; actions and automation (w/stops & interactions), and more!
Step-by-step demonstrations in MMW’s state-of-the-art digital lab and individual attention help students with specific areas of interest. Since no MMW workshop would be complete without fieldwork to collect new images for lab practice and hone shooting techniques, students in this workshop will explore, enjoy and photograph the beauty of Midcoast Maine.
This course is for Intermediate to Advanced students who are completely comfortable working with layers and masks in Adobe Photoshop.
