This class will provide a practical guide to enhancing photos with the most popular creative effects in Photoshop today.
We will breifly go through how to make basic edits in Camera Raw, develop and save color profiles, work with layers and selections, tone and sharpen, and retouch images while retaining their natural character.
The bulk of the class however, is dedicated to creative effects. You will learn how to modify color and light to add vibrance, drama, and emphasis to your images. We will explore some blur effects, which will also include the Photoshop CS6 Blur Gallery and motion blur to increase the ever popular depth-of-field, add a softer focus, or make your still images move.
We will also go through some instagram-esque techniques, such as film grain simulations, vintage monochrome and color effects, and border and edge effects.
And we'll breifly go over how to set up Photoshop's custom brushes and plug-ins for other creative effects.
Please feel free to bring your own digital images to work on during demonstrations.
In short, I'm a Visual Designer at iKreative VC, Governors Island and Beekman, working with both print and web. I'm in love with all things Creative Suite and I've been working with it since I was 13 years old.
