Where We Go: Every artist sees the world through their own unique set of glasses. Some are rose-colored, some make things brighter, others are black and white. Then there are people like artist, instructor, and Photoshop® visionary Mark S. Johnson, who has many, many pairs of glasses at his disposal. With a mastery of Photoshop’s abilities and his own limitless creative vision, Johnson turns his ideas into works of art. During this week with Johnson in his hometown of Boulder, Colorado, you apply your own vision to shoots in unique places like the scenic Chautauqua Meadow, the eclectic Pearl Street Mall, and a train museum loaded with historic character.
What You Learn: If you’re looking for a photographic experience to expand your vision and snap you out of your current way of seeing, this workshop is it. Through a combination of supportive photo evaluations and field shoots, Johnson not only teaches macro photography, creative motion techniques, and how to use multiple exposure, he rolls out the red carpet for you to explore your artistic side. Using Photoshop, he helps you to create impressionistic images that incorporate various montage techniques, painterly effects, and HDR. He fosters an encouraging environment that helps each participant grow technically and creatively. You’ll leave this workshop refreshed, restored, and energized by Johnson’s teachings and inspiration.
Considerations: You should be comfortable with the manual exposure operation of your camera and have a basic understanding of the latest version of Photoshop.
