Date: Jul 15-21, 2018
Levels: Advanced, Master
Workshop Fee: $1595
Class Size: 12
Focus on layering techniques in Photoshop in order to create cohesive and convincing digital collages. Maggie Taylor will share her working methods through a series of demos. Learn more about masks, layer sets, and the tools she uses most often in her imagery. Bring your own images to work on as well. Mornings will primarily be spent on technical demos, and afternoons will be creative time with input and advice from Maggie. This workshop is appropriate for advanced intermediate Photoshop users: you should already have a working knowledge of layers and layer masks as well as the blend modes and various layer features. You can bring scanned and photographed elements to composite, as well as works already in progress.
