This Workshop is designed for the Photographer who is very comfortable with shooting in manual mode and understands advanced camera settings.   I will be teaching this course using Photoshop.  It is best if students have a laptop with Photoshop.  We will learn how to SEE Artistic images before we take them and use in – camera techniques to create Art with our images in Photoshop. 

As Photographers, we use our creative eye and elements of Art to see and create strong images every day.    We place ourselves and observe, connecting to the moments of line, shape, form, texture and color.  Learning to see your subject before you photograph it and understanding how to create in - camera painterly images and backgrounds will raise your Photography to the next level.  – Gina Zhidov

 How to Pre-Visualize your Photographs and create Painterly images from your photos.

Students will learn how to photograph a subject using in camera techniques such as selective focus and shallow depth of field to create a painterly image.

Students will learn how to look for color, shape and form, highlights and contrast and use in camera techniques such as de-focus to create their own textured backgrounds and build a background library. 

Embrace the blur:  Students will learn how to create overlays in camera by using the de-focus technique.  Looking for highlights, color, shape and form students can create wonderful overlays to use in Photoshop and add the finishing touches to their Painterly images.  

Combining what we have learned to create ART. 

Using the images you have created we will then use Photoshop and layers, blending modes, masks, selective and brush tools to create your vision.  I feel this class is a great way to introduce working with layers in Photoshop.  I make it easy and fun.  

Workshop is held at the Gina Zhidov Photography studio 327 North 6th, Chickasha.
