Photoshop for Photographers – Intermediate
Dec 8 @ 9:30 am – 4:30 pm

This course runs from 9:30am to 4:30pm on Saturday 8th & Sunday 9th December.

 

This is a follow-on from the “Photoshop for Photographers – Fundamentals” short course. Participants will further develop their Photoshop skills & knowledge and practice its application to enhance and retouch photographs.

 

Content will include; using Adjustment layers & Blending modes, creating composites, automating with Actions, Droplets, & the Batch and Image Processor commands; use Content Aware Scale & Fill; simulate a shallow Depth of Field with Lens Blur, focus stack to expand the Depth of Field, stitch images for panoramas, utilise masks to build a Photo Montage e.g. replace a sky, construct a Picture Package with Smart Objects, utilise Layer blend modes to add depth & complexity into artistic images, employ a range of sharpening techniques, retouch with perspective using Vanishing Point, and create a photographer’s comp card.

 

Adobe® Photoshop CC will be used in class. It is much less applicable to earlier versions of the software.

 

We provide unlimited access to tea, coffee, water, biscuits & lollies throughout the course, however lunch is not provided. While there are a couple of places near to purchase lunch from, not many trade on Sundays, so we recommend bringing something with you.
