During the first 2 hours of the session, you will work through the essential tools and techniques in Photoshop.

The 3rd hour of the session will be spent working on photographs of your choice with dedicated feedback and assistance from me. Please feel free to bring your own images for this section on a laptop or USB key (if using a Maker _Space computer). If you’re unable to bring your own images, I will be providing some example photographs for you to work on.
