Welcome

Hi! Welcome! My name is Chris Orwig. You know, for me--the camera, it's a passport. It's an excuse to get out into the world and have experiences like this. And you know, the art and craft of photography, it requires equal amounts of skill with your camera as it does with your post-production work as well, and that's where Photoshop comes into play. We'll take a look at how we can work with Bridge and Mini Bridge in order to access and open our files, and also how we can use Adobe Camera RAW to apply non-destructive adjustments to our photographs.

We'll look at how we can work with layers and blending modes and also how we can make selections so that we can modify specific areas of our pictures. We'll look at how we can convert our photographs to black and white, and also how we can create rich and vivid colors in our pictures. We are going to cover all of these topics and more. So without further delay, let's begin.
