In this one-day class, we’ll go over the basics of great things you can do with your photo AFTER you click the shutter. We’ll look mostly at Adobe Photoshop, but if you have Elements or Luminar, we can take time with those, too. You’ll need a software program that supports layers. A laptop and software are not required, but if you have these, you’ll get a lot more out of the class by working “hands-on.” You’ll be playing with a few of my favorite painting plugins and textures and learning how to use layers and masking for maximum effect. Limited to ten people.

The venue is perfect: Graner House, Wakamatsu Farm, 941 Cold Springs Road, a few miles north of Placerville, El Dorado County.

The workshop, a benefit for the American River Conservancy, takes place from 1 to 5 p.m. at the Graner House, Wakamatsu Farm, 941 Cold Springs Road, Placerville (about two miles south of Coloma and a few miles north of Placerville). $85 ARC members, $95 non ARC members. To enroll, email Questions? Call American RIver Conservancy at (530) 621-1224.

Laptop with any version of Adobe Photoshop, Elements or Lightroom, plus some sample images. Images with simple backgrounds (such as sky) preferable. If you don’t have a laptop and/or Photoshop, that’s okay; you’ll just get to look at someone else’s work. Or you can bring a flash drive or CD with some images. I’ll have a few sample images for you to work with as well.




Cost of this workshop is $85, $95 non members. The workshop is limited to 10 people so that you get individualized attention.
