Paul D. Biederman, M.Photog.Cr.
This is a one-day hands-on workshop for intermediate to advanced Photoshop users. The participant should have a working knowledge in Photoshop of how to make layers, be familiar with the tool bar, be able to create a blank image, create a mask, and know about layer blending options Although there are numerous software programs designed for post-process painting, I have found for me, that Photoshop is the most user-friendly program for painting. Since most photographers already own Photoshop and they therefore do not need to purchase a new software program. At the completion of this workshop the participant should be able to: create a custom workspace, customize their tools and keyboard shortcuts, critically analyze their image, create a corrective image map, become familiar with the tools for painting in Photoshop, create painted backgrounds, create 3D forms, use several techniques for creating shadows and highlights, blend, create and bend shapes and forms, apply textures, and apply aforementioned to at least one of their images. The workshop will be intensive. Bring three images which you wish to analyze and paint. The Wacom tablet is a necessity for painting in Photoshop. The size of the tablet does not matter. We will review how to use the tablet, change nibs, and set-up a custom workspace on the Wacom tablet for streaming your overall workflow. Time permitting, you will create borders and a frame.
Items to bring: Working laptop with up to date operating system, cables; Wacom tablet-pen, cables and nibs (software should be loaded and working); latest version of Photoshop; external hard drive; three images on a jump drive; extension cord.
