Adobe Photoshop CC: Introduction to Compositing
with Josh Withers
July 6 - July 11, 2014

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.

“I found Josh easy to follow and always ready to help when you misstep. Problems get solved real-time.” Peter Peacock, past participant, Adobe Photoshop workshop with Josh Withers

Jerry Uelsmann brought the creative composite to life with his evocative photographic images, all made in his chemical darkroom. Adobe Photoshop then opened the world of creative compositing to digital photographers who have the experience and skills to take advantage of the software’s many features.

Josh is a daily Photoshop user, and with his guidance, participants learn the Photoshop techniques necessary for success in this creative field. While discovering how to transform concepts and ideas into images, you explore the tools used in compositing, including layers and masking, blend modes, adjustment layers, the properties panel, opacity, layer groups masking and clipping masks. Josh will also cover making complex selections, the Refine Edge command for hair masking, and the artistic approach towards making successful layered files.

Mornings are dedicated to instruction. In the afternoons, you work on your own images to reinforce your understanding of the techniques applicable to your photography—whether you are using these tools for digital illustrations or applying them towards traditional digital darkroom processes. Utilizing a non-destructive workflow, Josh combines creative inspiration with image-manipulation techniques to help you rediscover your enthusiasm and unleash your artistic potential.
