Photoshop Layering Photography Meetup

Photoshop Layering Photography Meetup

Saturday 08 June
Sunday Road, Stockbridge, GA - 11:30am - 2 Hours
Helen Thomas
This is a two hour meetup to practice working with layers in Adobe Photoshop. The biggest issue many photographers tell me they have with Photoshop is understanding how to work with layers. Layers allow you to make adjustments without altering the original image and be able to make changes to those adjustments at any time during the editing process.


This class will be held locally in the Sunday House Studio.

    The instructor, Helen, was awesome and the farm house setting was excellent for a photography club meet up. My objective for taking the course was refamiliarizing my self with controlling off camera flash. She did that for me while also having to teach photography fundamentals to a less experienced participant. I look forward to doing more in depth classes and meet ups with Helen and the APC!

    I thought it was great. Getting out of the classroom, so-to-speak was a real fresh change. Actually applying all that has been learned was a great opportunity for me. Helen is a great teacher.

    Lone Joshua tree in the Arizona desert. Captured in Date Creek Ranch just off the Joshua Tree Parkway, north of Wickenburg. It's this city's glow causing the light pollution on the horizon.Wickenburg was once called the "Dude Ranch Capital of the World". It still has several ranches and a decidedly western vibe. It's a great place to check out if you wanna get some old west dust in your lungs. Stack of 4, 15" photos. Sony A7RIV, 14mm F1.8, ISO3200.

    The weather forecast for the night Friday the 3rd May looked very good and because the last time I went to Portland Bill I didn't manage to get home with anything good, I thought of giving it another go.

    Saturday night, 5/11/24, I went out to the St. Charles Parish Wetlands Watchers Park wanting to capture some photos of the Northern Lights as the Solar Storm made the aurora visible down here in Louisiana. It was a cloudy night so we didn't get to see any of it. But a thunderstorm was was approaching and "heat lightning" was seen in the distance. As it got closer, the lightning strikes were getting more and more visible even though the storm was still miles away. So I repositioned my camera and

    I went on a hike in Yosemite Valley and unexpectedly found this tree that had a heart shaped hole in the trunk. I stayed until dusk and used my red light on my headlamp to cast the red glow inside the heart. I was inspired by my then girlfriend. I love LOVE!
