Have you recently jumped on board with the Adobe Creative cloud or own both photoshop and lightroom?

Do you use Lightroom but would like to learn Photoshop or vice versa?

Kate silvia and Kenny Mckeithan are going to walk you through the entire Lightroom and photoshop process step by step to make you a much better photo editor and creator.

Photo editing has always been a part of the creative process. Years ago, and still today for some, the darkroom was where their compositions came to life.  I was never content to drop my film off at Walgreens and have a machine make all the color and contrast decisions for me. Nor am I satisfied with what my camera says an image should look like. I make those decisions, and now you will too!

who should take this workshop?

This weekend is ideal for someone who owns both Photoshop and Lightroom and has used one of these programs for a while and has a relatively decent comfort level with it, but isn't confident in the other program. If you've owned Lightroom and recently signed up for the Creative Cloud, you get Photoshop automatically but nobody showed you how to use it. This workshop is for you...and vice versa with the programs. If you are simply dabbling in both programs and can't figure out a good workflow, this is for you! 

Don't worry...we're going to go out and play with our cameras a bit too!
