The vast majority of photographs that are taken today are taken with camera phones, the new point and shoot camera. For those with modern DSLR (Digital Single Lens Reflex) cameras, the vast majority of photographs are taken using the camera's auto settings which adds layer upon layer of problems. Lightroom is a dumbed down version of Photoshop and don't offer the quality standard required by the photographer/artist or someone trying to fix their photos. Photoshop Elements is the consumer version of Photoshop and is a very powerful program capable of doing 70% - 80% of what is possible in Photoshop CC and is often less than $100.00.
The Photoshop classes will give the student a solid foundation, the tools needed to explore and work with their photographs independently. It is also a great starting point for you very brave and adventurous souls to take on the Magnificent Beast - Photoshop CC.
Cost for the 7 hrs of classes: $750.00 ( $100.00 discount through February 28) Once enrolled your costs will stay the same for a long as you want to continue.
These private sessions are arranged to fit your schedule, held at your home and are designed to address your goals, work flow and creative questions...
In a recent class with a Photoshop student I was asked to help them understand the selection / extraction techniques. They sent the link for the YouTube video that they had spent hours trying to work with. Upon opening the video I noted the date it was created three years old which is several lifetimes in the world of Photoshop CC. With the conversion to the cloud these YouTube videos are outdated as soon as they are posted.
