Intro to Digital Photography
10 a.m. - 2 p.m.
If you love taking snapshots with your digital camera and want them to turn out a little better these two workshops are for you. The class will help demystify the camera settings, give some sage compositional advice and show you how to manage edit and resize your picture files.
10 a.m. - 2 p.m.
Photoshop/Elements Primer is a half day in-depth class for photographers and artists and is intended to give a strong foundation in Photoshop/Elements concepts and tools. This class is more involved then the Intro to Digital classes, which are designed for home users making family photos. The Primer class is an ideal compliment to the 12-week Photoshop for Photographers class for those that have minimal Photoshop and Elements experience and want to get the most out of the longer class.
Photoshop for Photographer
Thursday Nights starts 9-18
7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Photoshop for photographers is a three-month series of weekly workshops that will cover in detail the operation of Photoshop CS for beginning through advanced photographers. The basic operations will be covered in-depth from simple through more complex uses. Each of the classes will have a number of real life examples to help you understand the concepts presented. If you are a beginner at Photoshop the Photoshop/Elements Primer class will help to get you up to speed quickly so that you can get the maximum benefit from this series.
