Is this for me?

Learn the methodology and Photoshop skills to blend fact with fiction and create amazing composite images that live up to your imagination. This is a full days workshop with a large ‘edit along’ practical section.

Your expert, digital artist and ‘Horror Photographer of the Year 2017’ – Clinton Lofthouse will show you the secrets he’s developed over years to create photo realistic composites from fantasy, creative portraiture to horror.

Delegates should:

– Bring their own laptop loaded with a version of Photoshop (not Elements)
– Ideally bring a computer mouse and mouse mat, to make fine adjustment of images easier
– Feel comfortable working in Photoshop Layers

Towards the end, Clinton will do an anonymous critique of your own images.  If you would like to be included, please bring no more than 3 images on a USB and give them to me on the day.  Unless you offer the information, this will be totally anonymous but I think it’s a great way to get some feedback on images.
