On Monday (May 15th), I’ll be teaching a full day at Creative Live’s annual Photoshop Week. Think of Photoshop Week as an online conference of sorts. While it’s held in Seattle, WA – you can watch online from anywhere all week long (yes, and it’s free to watch the first time around while it’s live).
Anyway, this is my 3rd year teaching PSW and it’s always a fun time. While you’re most likely watching online, Creative Live also has a live audience in the room with me. So I’m actually talking to people I can see, which always makes it nice 🙂
So, if you can tune in on Monday, here’s my schedule. All times are Pacific Time since CL is located in Seattle, WA.
9am-12pm: Portrait Compositing from Start to Finish (with a break in between)
I’m really excited about this one. I’ve personally been working on a compositing course for Photoshop. My Photoshop Compositing book is one of my best-sellers and it’s time I follow it up with a video. So this course will be a fun way to introduce people to the world of shooting and editing a composite image where you place a person from a simple background, in to something different.
NOTE: I will be shooting this in the studio with lighting and a clean background. If you want success in compositing you have to start with success in mind and that’s the best way to do it.
1:15pm: Cloning, Healing, and Removing Distractions in Photoshop
In this class I’ll be going through all of the different ways to remove distractions from your photos. We’ll go through the tools, but then I’ll go through some real-world projects and you’ll see first hand what tools work best for certain situations.
3:00pm: The Power of Lightroom Presets
There’s so many things we can do with Lightroom presets, and this class goes over all of them from start to finish.
As I mentioned earlier, all of this stuff (included the entire week’s classes) are free to watch the first time around. You can sign up right here, and jump in on Monday to see the classes. Also, be sure to say hi in the comments. They read a lot of them and it’s always nice to hear a familiar name while I’m up there teaching. Have a great weekend!
