Virtual Lecture Series: Establishing a Life in Photoshop – Beginning and Intermediate Digital Imaging Lessons
With Associate Professor Michael Swoboda
Saturday, May 23rd, 2020
Online: 1:30pm – 3:00pm
Michael will demonstrate various creative and professional methodologies of compositing and layering in Photoshop. Application of these methods are in service of commercial photography, digital imaging and editing, animation, restoration of damaged images, and in the generating of more expressive results such as modern Pictorial-style images.
