Workshops

 

The following educational programs are offered for members to develop their skills in photography and image processing.  Most courses are taught by volunteer club members who give their time and talents freely. They prepare for their instruction periods so that you may benefit from them. Some classes are presented in a sequence of parts. To gain the maximum benefit from the instruction, workshop participants should make an effort to follow through and attend each class session as it is scheduled.

 

This season we ask that you register for workshops you plan to attend. This will allow instructors to adequately prepare workshop materials and available workshop space. PLEASE NOTE: Workshops will be available for registration on the first day of the month preceding the scheduled event date. Prior to the registration opening date, a note in the left hand margin will have the message "Registration is Closed". It does not mean that the event is "Full". 

 

To register you will need to be logged into the Grand Photos membership site and then scroll to the class and click on the register button below the workshop title.  Most workshops are free; when there is a fee as part of the registration process, you may pay online using PayPal or a credit card, or you may print out the invoice and take a copy of the invoice along with your payment to the studio and leave it with the monitor.

    7 Photoshop Techniques Every Lightroom User Needs to Know, Part 1


    Photoshop is an invaluable tool for all Lightroom users, and in this workshop we will use Scott Kelby videos to teach/demonstrate the most important Photoshop techniques you’ll need to know to get the most out of it.  Starting off with the basics of moving between Lightroom and Photoshop, Scott moves on to covering the fundamentals of working with selections and layers, and then builds up from there using various projects to demonstrate how it all comes together. Through the class you’ll learn how to remove distractions, how to blend layers with layer masks, how to work with high contrast images, the fundamentals of portrait retouching, how to get started with compositing, and how to deal with all kinds of problems you might encounter in your photographs. By the end of the class you’ll realize that Photoshop is not that hard when you focus on just the techniques you can’t do inside of Lightroom.


    The seven techniques are presented in a series of 14 videos, we will pause between each video and discuss/demonstrate the information covered in the video. 


    The workshop will be split into two session.


    Experience Level: Beginners/Intermediate/Advanced


    Equipment: Optional, if you have a laptop with Adobe Photoshop you may want to bring it and practice the techniques as they are being presented.


    Registration: REQUIRED
