  • Like MPW’s Basic Photoshop (#201), this class is entirely hands-on with students having their own computer work stations.  While the Basic Photoshop course emphasizes the tools, the Advanced Photoshop course focuses on photographically useful corrections and enhancements.  Adjustment layers, masking and color blending modes are extensively used for image manipulation and correction.  In addition, students complete an extensive digital retouching exercise in which a portrait is de-constructed into component layers permitting detailed enhancement of lips, eyes, mouth, eyebrows, nose and chin.  Liquefy distortion is then employed to reshape cheeks, chin and neck in addition to sculpting the waist and torso.  Besides correcting photo realistic images, students explore black and white photographic techniques, but using COLOR imagery in the digital domain.  Abstract, painterly and graphic arts techniques are also covered.  Finally, specialized darkroom tricks, such as the Sabattier effect, are duplicated using digital technology.
