Many of my online students and people who have traveled with me on my photo tours asked me if I would give personal instruction in Photoshop, and this has evolved into weekend seminars in my home. I built an Education Center in the lower level of my home that offers a warm and relaxed atmosphere, and it is here that this two day event takes place. I cover the tools palette, layers and layer masks, channels, compositing images and replacing skies, the best Photoshop plug-ins, and much, much more. Photoshop is many things to many people. Some use it simply to alter color, contrast, and exposure, some photographers use it primarily to beautify skin tones in portraits, while other people use it to clone out unwanted elements in a scene like telephone wires and overexposed highlights. I do all of that, but I take Photoshop to a much higher level in terms of its creative potential. Most other instructors focus on the commands without showing you how to be creative with them. First I teach you the commands, and then I show you multiple ways of turning that knowledge into awesome images.

Even though I start at the beginning, this workshop is not just for beginners. Because Photoshop can’t be taught in a linear fashion, like mathematics, I quickly get into amazing techniques that intermediate and advanced Photoshop users will love to learn.
For a full outline of the workshop, send me a note and I’ll be happy to email it to you. You will need to bring your own laptop, and you will need to travel to Nashville, Tennessee. I will pick you up from the airport if you fly in, and the workshop fee includes two lunches in my home plus a dinner that my wife prepares. I can tell you that about 60% of the compliments I get for the weekend is for her cooking!
I love Photoshop and I really enjoy inspiring you with what this program can do. You will be truly amazed at the awesome creativity with which this program empowers you. You will take your photographs to a new level. I provide a printed handout that gives you step by step procedures for many of the techniques I demonstrate.
Fee: $450, includes 2-day workshop, two lunches, one dinner, transportation to and from airport and to and from your hotel to my home. If you would like to register for an upcoming workshop, CONTACT ME and I’ll give you the details of how to do it.
