I recently visited Carlisle, to run a days Photoshop training for The Northern Counties Photographic Federation.
The Northern Counties Photographic Federation (NCPF) is one of fifteen organisations that between them cover the whole of the United Kingdom.
To be asked to deliver the Photoshop Workshop for them was a real honour, and they were a great bunch of friendly people on the day. There were around 80 people that attended the workshop, and the large room was pretty full.
We started the morning off with a look around Photoshop, checking the tools out, the context sensitive menus, and purpose of each of the tools.
We later progressed onto layers and masks, and looked at the different blending modes and purpose and operations of layer masks.
After lunch we looked at Camera RAW and began to edit images live from a RAW file to finished image.
We finished off looking at dodging and burning, sharpening, a quick look around Lightroom and the way Photoshop and Lightroom interact.
Following a short Q&A session we wrapped the day up and I headed off to park on The M6 for a while in standing traffic.
A thoroughly enjoyable day, and the hospitality shown to me by The NCPF was first class.
