Amersham Studios is proud to have developed this fascinating workshop on portraiture for the Royal Photographic Society.
Is this for me?
This course is for anyone who has basic familiarity with Photoshop but is looking for new ideas, a wider range of techniques, and the ability to use Photoshop to develop a personal style.
Why will this make me a better photographer?
This is a practical workshop to demonstrate the tools and techniques in Photoshop for producing images that are genuinely distinctive and personal. John Humphrey shows a range of approaches that enable you to apply your creative vision to photographs.
