I’ll be teaching a nine week class on Photoshop at Watkins College, meeting once a week February 7 through April 11. If you are living in the Nashville area and want to learn Photoshop or improve you skills, this class is for you.
Photoshop is not as complicated as you think. With just a few tools, you can adjust your photographs with great precision, unlocking your creative vision. This workshop will teach these tools and the workflow for using them through the process of making prints. But Photoshop is simply an instrument like a piano, so I want to do more than teach you where the keys are and how to press them. I want to teach you to make music with your photographs. Integral to the class will be developing your eye to make refined judgements on exposure, contrast, color, saturation, and the local controls of dodging and burning.
This class is perfect for entry level students to build the foundations you need to keep growing as a photographer, and for intermediate students to learn a powerful and efficient workflow.
I’ve taught this class to hundreds of students of all levels of Photoshop and photography experience. Consistently I’ve been able to help each student improve their skills, their vision, their understanding, and their prints. The techniques have been used on tens of thousands of client files at the former West Coast Imaging, producing prints for some of the most talented photographers working today.
If you have any questions about the class, send me an email and I’ll be glad to answer them.
