Course Overview:

This four-day workshop is limited to a maximum of 24 students.

Exercises will include working with still images and working directly with video files with Adobe Photoshop.

Throughout the entire workshop, recommended best practices will be used with non-destructive processes employed whenever possible.

Students must provide their own laptop. If it doesn’t already have Adobe Photoshop or Bridge, the demos versions can be downloaded on day one of class.
