Photoshop CS6: The Creative Composite
July 3 - July 6, 2013

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.


Jerry Uelsmann brought the creative composite to life in the 1960’s with his evocative photographic images, all made in his chemical darkroom. Then Adobe Photoshop opened the world of creative compositing to digital photographers. But to create competent composites requires the experience and skills to take advantage of the software’s many features. This workshop with Jerry Courvoisier, a Photoshop power user, gives each participant the advanced techniques needed to be successful in this creative field.

During our four days together, Jerry helps you discover how to transform concepts and ideas into images. You master the tools used in compositing, including layers and masking, blend modes, adjustment layers, the properties panel, opacity, and clipping paths. To accomplish these concepts, you will be instructed how to use Smart Objects and Smart Filters, making complex selections using channels and the pen tool, and creating knockout layer effects using advanced blending options, clipping masks, Layer Groups, and the Refine Edge command.

Mornings are dedicated to instruction, with time set aside in the afternoon for you to work on your own images. This is the chance for you to reinforce your understanding of techniques, discover how they are applicable to your photography, and engage in individual critique sessions. Using the most flexible, non-destructive editing process imaginable, Jerry combines creative inspiration with image-manipulation techniques. Join him, rediscover your enthusiasm, and unleash your potential!
