This course is held for 4 consecutive Tuesdays 7pm to 10:00pm to (October 29th, Nov 5th, 12th, 19th.)
In this intensive hands on computer workshop, longtime Photoshop instructor Natasha Calzatti will cut through the complexity in Photoshop and help you to master it as a photographic tool. The class meets three hours per session, one night a week for four weeks. Natasha will show you the fundamentals of Photoshop and the power of Adobe Bridge. If you stumble around Photoshop like you learned to type (hunting and pecking) then take this opportunity to re-learn your fundamentals for this complex program that has replaced the chemical darkroom.
This class takes place in our state of the art computer lab where each student is assigned a brand new 27-inch iMac 2.7GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5 equipped with an Intuos graphics tablet. You do not need to bring a laptop.

Student Quote: "The Adobe Photoshop for Photographers, Level One class taught by Natasha Calzatti was much more than I expected. I’m a full time commercial photographer and to be honest, I stumble around in Photoshop doing some basic things. But I decided it was time to learn the fundamentals and see how many bad habits I had developed over the years.. . . Natasha was very informative, a great communicator and obviously knows her Photoshop. Right out of the box we were learning about the power of Adobe Bridge- things I never knew Bridge could do. By the end of the first class we had learned about; setting the white and black points in an image using levels, working with the patch tool, spot healing brush and proper layer order. . . . If you’re a photographer and think you know enough Photoshop to get by, I recommend you start at the beginning and learn the proper ways to work in this extremely deep program." - Jim Wimberg
"This was a great class. Natasha was an amazing instructor. I learned so much practical information that I can apply immediately to my workflow. She was very thorough in covering all of the functions available in Lightroom. I would highly recommend this class and others with this instructor. Thanks and keep up the good work!" - Carolyn Ozimok
"I thought the class was first-rate and the teacher was spectacular… I plan to take several more of your courses, and could not be more satisfied with my experience." - Chris Wilkinson
