Registration deadline: January 27, 2023

In this introductory hands-on workshop, you will use your own laptop and software to learn the basics of photographic post-production workflow using Adobe Photoshop.  You will learn how to make basic non-destructive, editable adjustments to your images both in specific areas of your photos as well as global adjustments.  Additionally, we will dive into file formats, color space, and the visual aesthetics of adjustments.


Photoshop classes for photographers differ from the traditional learning flow used for graphic designers and other creative positions – that’s why instructor Tom Klare has designed this course specifically for the digital photographer.  This workshop is ideal for individuals who are just starting out in photography and want to learn basics in post-processing or those needing a refresher course in basic post-production.  Join photography instructor and Adobe Photoshop expert, Tom Klare to begin your journey with Adobe Photoshop.

Workshop includes:

  • Photoshop instruction
  • Boxed lunch
