Add The “WOW” Factor To Your Photos
The world of editing can take your great images to the next level! This completely practical camp will introduce teens to both two industry leading photography editing software: Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. We will cover all the key tools and creative adjustments in each program so campers can retouch, restore and manipulate photos. Campers will shoot and edit their own images individually and in group settings.
“This was a fun camp filled with education, a fun group and some very cool locations to photograph. I love how much feedback they give on your work.”
– Sophia | GTA Photography Camper 2017
- Key Photoshop tools (paintbrush, clone, liquify, text, dodge/burn etc.)
- Overview of Lightroom workflow, tools and adjustments
- Restoring and retouching photos
- Multiple exposures and overlaying textures
- Photo manipulation
- Creating your own Ripley’s poster with an out of this world image
Campers will learn great tools in Photoshop and Lightroom to make either slight adjustments or massive changes to their images. They’ll learn how to tweak colour, contrast and saturation to take their images from good to great in a few quick steps.
Selections & Layer Masking
When campers are ready to fine tune their images, we’ll show them how they can modify very specific parts of their pictures. They’ll be able to get super creative by compositing multiple images together, changing the colour of objects and overall taking what they see in their imaginations and creating them on screen.
Retouching and Creative Enhancement
The instructor will guide campers on how to edit both landscapes as well as portraits. They’ll learn all the retouching tools in Photoshop so they can remove things from scenes or duplicate them. Teens will also learn how to create their own filters just like Instagram to give their images a creative twist.
