Adobe Photoshop Workshop with Stephen Burns
Saturday, April 26, 2014 from 9:00 AM to 1:30 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Join us for an exciting half-day BYOD* Photoshop workshop!
Registration extended!! Only a few hours left!
Photoshop artist Stephen Burns has designed a seminar that will challenge you to find your unique artistic voice. Come and learn approaches to creating with your digital tools that will take your work in a more expressive direction. As part of our series of meetings on "Visual Storytelling in the Digital Age", this hands-on workshop will help you learn new approaches in Photoshop to create more expressive images: for example, a photo montage for your e-book cover page or for your new website or mobile app.
Stephen will share how to approach image creation from a painter's point of view, in that we are not limited to the single image. The goal is to create from your heart.
This seminar is designed to get you in the habit of applying possibilities that extend beyond the obvious approach to image creation. The presentation will go beyond tips and tricks or simple workflows designed to showcase the capability of the software. We will create artistic concepts from beginning to end using the internal vision to guide you toward an end result.
*BYOD: Bring your own laptop and be ready for an inspiring few hours of creative work!
Snacks and drinks will be provided, parking is free, and there will be raffle prizes too!
If you sign up to attend online, the Adobe Connect Meeting Room URL will be provided to you prior to the meeting.
Sponsored by the Orange County MultiMedia Association (OCMMA) and the Adobe Creative Cloud User Group - Orange County.
