This class is for those who are trying to maximize the impact of their photographic images. Professional photographer, Pam Benham, will guide students through the basics of using both the principles of photography and Adobe PhotoShop CC. A wide cross section of photographic abilities will be welcome in this class. The only requirement is that students understand the basics of photography. We will explore lighting and how it affects and empowers images, elements of composition, and time and space in photography. Also included will be the many technical aspects of photography used to enhance images such as f-stops, shutter speeds,
white balance, ISO setting, how and when to use strobes, and how to optimize natural light. An assortment of interesting assignments will be allow students to explore various genres of photography. Students are also invited to use this class to concentrate on an already-existing project. Adobe PhotoShop CC will be explored through digital post-production processing, offering students an opportunity to learn how to alter and enhance images; how to use the tool bar and menu; how to size photographs, get the right color, tones, and exposure; how to use the airbrush, rubber stamp, healing brush, and red eye tool; and more! This fun and interesting class will build both your photography and Adobe PhotoShop skills. Necessary equipment includes: cameras, lens, and thumb drive. Instructor Pam Benham works as a location photographer throughout the West for a wide array of corporate, editorial, and advertising accounts.
