During the 1/2 Day Workshop:

Amy will walk you through the editing process of several of portraits, demonstrating the following:

RAW vs. JPEG – what’s the difference and how to know which file type is best?

PPI/DPI – how to crop and deal with resolution of your photos to optimize them for printing or for web sharing.

Storing your photos on your computer, and inexpensive ways to back everything up in case the worst happens.

Layers, Curves, and Color Balance – Three tools that will immediately change the way you handle your photos and take them from good to spectacular.

DURING THE SECOND HALF OF THE WORKSHOP (you must purchase the full day workshop to stay for the second half):

Fixes – Fixing overexposed and underexposed photos, painting light, etc.

Enhancements – brighten eyes, teeth, fix blemishes.

Editing – Learn about my favorite Actions in photoshop and how to find and purchase Actions for yourself.
