Beginning Photoshop for Photographers

Part of a Workshop Series with Randy Collier

In this Photoshop series, Randy cuts through the overwhelming amount of choices. He will dive deep into the handful of tools you will need to know to master 90% of Photoshop. You will learn the “why” as much as the “how” to use each tool, layer and mask, so it becomes intuitive for your methods and choices of tools. By the time you’re done, you’ll be confident in your skills and will wish you had started using Photoshop much sooner.

This series on Photoshop is designed especially for photographers that feel fairly comfortable in Lightroom or Camera RAW, but want to know how to take the next step in creativity and experimentation.  We will move seamlessly between those production tools and Photoshop’s unlimited possibilities. Come, grow and find your true creative potential as you learn to get past the mechanics of the software and begin creating the perfect image that you saw in your mind when you captured that original RAW file – including the finishing touches for presentation!

You will receive a link to all of our class files and several extra items, including actions, textures, and shortcuts.

There are three classes, three Wednesdays in a row, on March 9th, 16th and 23rd from 7:00-9:00 or 9:30 PM. Registration is on line and for members only. The cost for all three classes is $80.
