Photoshop Beginning and Advanced
I've always believed that the process of working on images in Photoshop can be a way of becoming a better photographer. Taking the time to observe and alter the visual relationships on screen over time informs how we see when we go out to shoot. For a lot of photographers, it can be a virtuous circle. Photoshop classes are about learning techniques to solve aesthetic problems: for example: how do we create the illusion of space in a photograph, how do we identify the subject, how do we use color expressively, how do we keep the viewer's eye engaged within an image? In other words, the decisions made in image processing and manipulation are inseparable from our ideas about structure and meaning.
