We begin at 9:30am and typically conclude between 3-4pm.

After receiving numerous requests, I am finally offering an Advanced Photoshop Workshop! As an Adobe Certified Expert in Photoshop, I love playing sharing my knowledge with others. If you have ever wondered how or why my images look the way they do, then you may wish to attend as I will be disclosing many of my techniques.

This workshop will be geared towards photographers, with an emphasis on efficiency (shortcut keys, actions, presets, etc). We will be working on a variety of photographs, including; wedding, portrait, newborn, family and children. I will also ask the participants to send me one of their images that they would like to transform or improve. I am really excited about the content, sometimes it even keeps me awake at night! Dreaming of curves and droplets. Ha.  Our Photoshop workshop is a mix of instruction, demonstration and hands-on application. Exercise files are provided.

Photoshop is an extremely robust, diverse application, we will not be working with Bridge, Image Ready, slices (or anything to do with website design). As mentioned previously, we will focus on the use of Photoshop as it pertains to photographers.

Advanced is defined as the following:
Familiarity and basic understanding of layers
Working knowledge of Photoshop

These are a few of the topics we will cover:

  • Curves
  • Layer Masks
  • Actions
  • Droplets
  • Color Enhancements
  • Creative Color Techniques
  • Body Scultping

In addition, we will create and save a few of my favorite actions for you to take home! The most exciting of these is my complete retouch action, which includes skin softening and facial enhancements.
