My friend Scott Stulberg will teach a class on how to use Photoshop plugins, layer masks, and other retouching techniques to enhance your photographs, whether you wish to extract a more realistic effect or play with extreme effects. The class runs August 29-30, 2009.
Working on your own computer in class and a Wacom graphics tablet, you learn how to:
* Correct color casts
* Add beautiful blurs
* Selectively sharpen
* Dodge and burn
* Convert photos to rich black and whites
* Create painting effects
* Tone down noise
* Master layer masks
* Use blend modes
* Retouch Portraits – make the eyes pop, whiten teeth, soften wrinkles, smooth the skin and more.
The class will also focus on many of the best third-party filters available for Photoshop and cover creating useful actions to speed up your workflow. We will provide trial versions of the software.
Scott brings unmatched enthusiasm to his classes. He regularly teaches at the UCLA extension, leads photo trips for Julia Dean, and is represented by Getty and Corbis.
If you want a broad introduction to enhancing photographs in Photoshop, I recommend two day intensive class. It will be fun.
