We are fully ensconced in a time period where everything is Digital. When we take a selfie with our camera phones to share with people it is a quick occurrence. In past eras, a portrait would be time consuming and artisans would pay attention to detail. A professional photographer would set up a shot with proper lighting, posing, and make sure all would be set including an appropriate backdrop.
Today with the tools of Photoshop, we can be endlessly expressive, and the potentials are endless. Whether we hand color, mix various modes of contract, hue/saturation, multiple layers of the same image, texturize our imagery there are creative possibilities. In this class we will work on our own self portraits *(or others) creating unique and different pictures worthy of gallery exhibition.
