Explore panoramas & focus stacking as we take our post-processing skills a step further with this advanced Adobe Photoshop 102 course.

Registration deadline: May 5, 2020

In this intermediate hands-on workshop, you will use your own digital cameras, laptop and Adobe Photoshop software to learn the basics of shooting and processing panoramas and focus stacking methods.  Non-destructive, editable adjustments of images using layer masks will be covered for overall settings as well as local adjustments.  File format, size, color space, and the visual aesthetics of adjusted photos will also be discussed.
