ASSEMBLING A SHOT OF YOUR OWN

This class will be based on enhancing your regular pictures by blending and creating dynamic images in Photoshop. We will explore contrast control ideas, HDR, focus building solutions with photo stacking software and building panorama photographs. In-class demos will also cover color and monochromatic conversions along with many blending/compositing solutions. Our classes are based on the philosophy that students learn more by doing than simply by being instructed. You name it; we will help you build it.

This is an intermediate/advanced level class where a working Knowledge of Photoshop is very helpful.

Class is limited to 12 students. (Minimum enrollment of 4 students). Students should bring a lap top computer with Photoshop installed.

Instructor: Rodger Newbold
Thursdays, 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm
April 20 - July 6, 2017 (12 weeks)

PHOTOSHOP / DIGITAL IMAGING — LEVEL 1

Today's photographers live in a digital world. We no longer "snap pictures" and send film to the labs for processing. Today we "digitally capture" images, process them on our computers, distribute them online, and print them on our desktop printers.

This is a hands-on-computer class designed to help students with little to moderate prior digital experience learn the tools needed to produce professional-quality results. Instruction emphasizes Adobe Bridge, used prior to Adobe Camera Raw and Photoshop. Adobe Bridge is the organizational suite, Camera Raw is the global correction suite and Photoshop is the enhancement suite. Discussion will involve all pertinent file types, selections, layers, masking and blend modes, plus much more.

You are invited to bring your own laptop computer with a version of Adobe Photoshop software already installed. The new Creative Cloud version can be purchased at a discount monthly rate by going to the following link: www.adobe.com/creativecloud/photography.html.

THE STORY OF THE PHOTOGRAPHY SCHOOL

The Salt Lake Art Center was founded in 1931 as a private, non-profit institution to champion contemporary visual arts in Utah. The Art Center was originally located in The Art Barn, near the University of Utah, where the first classroom and education program was offered to the public.
Over the years, the Art Center School has maintained its commitment to provide quality art instruction for adults through an outstanding curriculum in Ceramics and Photography for all skill levels. In addition to regular classes, special workshops covering various topics in both Ceramics and Photography are frequently offered. Regular classes run approximately 16 weeks, coinciding with the University of Utah and Salt Lake Community College semesters.
