14th Sep – RPS: PHOTOSHOP ESSENTIALS FOR CREATIVE PHOTOGRAPHERS with JOHN HUMPHREY
Amersham Studios is proud to have developed this fascinating workshop on portraiture for the Royal Photographic Society.
Is this for me?
A one-day workshop for photographers who would like to use Photoshop to develop their creative skills in photography, but are not sufficiently familiar with the range of tools and techniques in Photoshop. You will need to bring your own laptop with a version of Photoshop installed.
Many photographers recognise that their pictures could be enhanced by tweaking in Photoshop, but lack the skills and the confidence to make the necessary adjustments.
Why will this make me a better photographer?
This workshop covers the basic techniques needed to import pictures into Photoshop and to make creative and artistic enhancements. The day will be hands-on and delegates are required to bring their own laptops loaded with a version of Photoshop.
Key Learning points:
– Creating and working with layers
– Resizing images
– Applying layer masks
– Using layer blend modes
– Layer styles
– Adjustment layers
– Selections and strokes
– Working in Camera Raw
– Transform tools
This workshop focuses on the essential tools and techniques. Individuals who are already confident with the above topics would probably find the ‘Creative Techniques in Photoshop’ workshop more relevant since it covers the ways in which the tools can be used to develop personal creativity.
– 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
