Advanced Photo Editing Techniques Part 2  (watch me edit your photos live)

Sunday, June 3rd, 2018, 12:00pm - 4:00pm $45

One of the best ways to learn something is to watch and listen to someone who knows it well.  As you see the process and hear the explanation, your brain has an easier time creating an understanding of what’s happening.  Not only that, but the ability to ask questions to refine that understanding is also very important.  In this class we’re going to do just that.  I’m going to demonstrate many different editing techniques in Photoshop and Lightroom – Live!.  Bring in an image (or a small project) you would like to learn.  I’ll use it as one of the class demonstrations.  All the editing I do on the computer will be recorded as a screen shot video.  These videos will be available to you after the class so you can re-watch the processes we go over!

Mastering Flash Photography

Shooting & Stitching Panoramas and Wide View Images

Monday, June 25th, 2018, 3:30pm-5pm, $35

Stitching is a valuable technique that allows you to take very wide angle shots without the distortions and expense of extreme wide angle lenses.  You'll learn the shooting and processing techniques and software need to produce images you never thought possible. From multi-row shooting to ideal focal lengths to tripod leveling, you come away armed and dangerous.  You'll also learn how to find the nodal point of your lenses so you can create the perfect point of rotation.  There's more to it than just moving the camera left to right!
