Photoshop Basics Workshop is designed to teach you the basic processing tools of Photoshop so you can bring out the best quality in your photographs. I will guide you in a workflow that starts with uploading your photograph to Photoshop and then exploring many of the different tools that are essential for bringing the best out of your photograph. Crop, Levels, Rubber Stamp, Spot Healing Brush, Lasso, Brightness/Contrast, Burning/Dodging, Hue/Saturation, Exposure and Sharpening are the tools you will learn to use. You will learn about layers. And if you would like to convert your color images to black and white, we can explore that workflow as well.

Photoshop Basics Workshop Fee: $125

You decide what you would like to learn

Nancy LeVine can work closely with you to identify your photographic subject and to develop a plan for exploring it in greater depth and breadth. If you are just starting, or have a series of ideas or beginnings, we will set a course for expanding your project and discuss what might constitute a ‘complete’ exploration of your subject, or, if you have a long-term work in progress, we will look at your bank of images in connection with your goals to help you understand how to edit your work, and fill in gaps in your photographic project. If you have just returned from a trip where you have taken many photographs, this class can help you select the photographs that best speak to your experience. There are always many stories within a journey. Please contact me for more information about private instruction.
