Adobe Photoshop for Photographers

Learn to use Photoshop CC to take creative control of your photography. You will learn fundamentals from understanding different file types all the way to understanding advanced concepts like layers, masks and compositing techniques. Each class is dedicated to learning a new aspect of digital photo editing like retouching tools, color and detail enhancement strategies, working with brackets and image stitching, while also providing time to review the information from the prior class.

This is a beginner to intermediate class requiring no prior Photoshop or Lightroom experience and it will be using the Adobe Creative Cloud Photography plan versions of both PS and LR.  Although the emphasis is on Photoshop, there will be a discussion of the role Lightroom plays in a photographer’s workflow.

This series of 6 classes is being taught by Braden Chattman, director of digital education at the Hallmark Institute of Photography for 8 years and co-founder of Chattman Photography. Classes meet for 2.5 hours once per week for 6 weeks.

Time: Thursdays, beginning September 14, 6:00 – 8:30 pm
Location: Smith Vocational and Agricultural High School
Cost: $225 for all 6 classes
