Presenting Your Photographic Work

Our 9th Year at Stewart Hall!

NEW! Starts Wednesday, March 29, 2017

Pointe Claire Cultural Centre - Stewart Hall

So you have thousands of images on your computer hard drives and memory cards, but now you want to do something with them. This workshop focuses on how to create poster sized prints and canvases, dynamic digital slide shows with music, and stunning photobooks with popular publishers Blurb, My Publisher and Photobook Canada

For this workshop - participants will be shown how to advance their skills with an image processing software, such as Photoshop Elements (11 to 14), Photoshop CS 4-6, or Lightroom 5-6 to make final image adjustments, for presentation and printing. You are most likely shooting in RAW format, to capture as much data as possible to process your images.

Challenging assignments will spark your creativity, to create fabulous prints, a photobook, and/or innovative digital slide show.

On our last night, we will review and provide helpful critique of the project of your choice, be it a dazzling print, canvas, a book or digital slide show production!
