Creative Techniques in Photoshop

This is a practical workshop to demonstrate the tools and techniques in Photoshop for producing images that are genuinely distinctive and personal. John Humphrey shows a range of approaches that enable you to apply your creative vision to photographs. Starting with the essential Photoshop tools, John demonstrates how they can be used, often in combination, to produce ‘photographic art’. Basic familiarity with Photoshop will be assumed, although advanced knowledge is not required.

Each delegate will have the use of a computer equipped with Photoshop CS6. However, the techniques explained can be adapted for use on most other image processing software. If you would like to apply the techniques to your own images, bring a selection as jpegs on a memory stick.

The workshop includes:

  • Layer masks, blend modes and layer styles
  • Tips and tricks for effective use of artistic filters
  • Using filters in combination
  • Combining pictures and applying textures
  • Creative toning and split toning
  • Blurring and mirroring to produce abstract and impressionist images
  • Image edges and borders

Bring a packed lunch or use local facilities. Drinks provided.
Times: 10am – 5pm
Address:The Royal Photographic Society, Fenton House, 122 Wells Road, Bath  BA2 3AH


Parking: There is no parking at the RPS on weekdays but there are spaces available in the surrounding streets.  At weekends you can park in the RPS car park (spaces are limited) which is accessed to the left of the building through a gateway.
