Photography – Introduction with Photoshop
Start here to make the most of a digital camera and begin to use Photoshop. Bring your camera to each session to improve on your photography skills and become familiar with all the features offered. As you progress you will start to use Photoshop to manipulate your photos and images. This course is aimed at students with easy-to-use point-andclick cameras. The follow-on course covers DSLR cameras and there are longer Photoshop courses to choose from.
