About This Class

In this class you will take a photograph and isolate the background making it black and white in photoshop. This is a great technique to bring life to some of those otherwise bland portraits.

Adobe Photoshop is one of the most useful tools to learn. It has so many applications, and is used by people in a handful of industries including: photography, marketing, illustration, branding, video, and more. 

Required Class Supplies

  • Adobe Photoshop. If you don’t have the program you can download a 30 day free trial here. All class tutorials are recorded on a Mac using Photoshop CC. You do not need a Mac or the most recent version of Photoshop to follow along. Most of the tools are consistent across all versions of Photoshop. 
  • Please note: Photoshop Elements is a limited version of Photoshop and is not recommended for this course.
