This one day, "hands-on" workshop will provide proven, step-by-step Photoshop techniques that participants can apply to discover and utilize the creative tools of this powerful software

Adobe Lightroom, when properly understood, is probably one of the most innovative and intuitive programs for photographers.  It imports captured images, sets up a Data Asset Management (DAM) workflow, works on RAW and image files for both global and local enhancements and exports files (if required) to Photoshop.
Creative Photoshop Fine Arts Techniques - March 19th and 20th, 2011

I will use several of my award winning images as workshop examples to demonstrate a number of styles and finishes as used by leading photographers, here and overseas.  A CD of the images used in the workshop will be provided do that participants can use them during the workshop to follow each individual step during the tuition.

Photoshop Elements Unleashed - Monday Evenings April 12th and 19th 2011
The workshop is suited for photographers having a modest or no working knowledge of digital enhancing software and are keen to 'start from scratch' with a proven and popular entry level digital software.
