Class Size: 12 (Max)
NOTE: This Course will be held in an Online Format using the Zoom Platform.
Would you like your images to have a more refined, artful touch? Are you looking to expand your post-production toolbox beyond the basics? If so, here is your chance to take creative control. In this workshop, we will tackle numerous Photoshop challenges, including color-correction, creative color grading, retouching, masking, and creating complex composites. We will explore multiple strategies to enhance the expression and mood of any image. We will learn techniques for high-end retouching, and how to conquer masking challenges like hair and translucent materials. Putting all of this into action, we will create convincing multiple-image montages, correctly integrating perspective, depth of field, lighting, shadows and colors. Whatever your style or subject, this workshop will help you make the most of your photographs in Photoshop.
We will meet daily as a group from 10:30am–12pm EST for a mix of live and pre-recorded demos & tutorials, then break for lunch and independent assignment work sessions from 12pm–3:30 EST. We will meet again from 3:30–5pm EST for group discussion, review, and a look at work in progress. Throughout the day, Richard will be available for one-on-one instruction via an “office-hours” sign-up sheet.
Basic familiarity with Photoshop recommended.
