About This Class

     In this class, I hope to inspire students to use their personal photography, as the raw material for botanical motifs and pattern designs.

In this Photoshop class, you will learn:

- How to isolate the focal element from it's background, with the use of Selection Tools, Adjustment Layers, and Layer Masking

- How to easily create Silhouettes from your selections, and turn them into Photoshop Brushes

and MORE!

     Please do not hesitate to ask me any questions, I will respond as soon as possible.

     I will also have 2 follow-up courses in this Series, with the creation of Pattern Designs in both Photoshop and Illustrator.

     I hope you'll join me, so I can share my passion and inspire new ideas.
