Layers, Masks, Selections and Blend Modes

Our guest speaker will be Stanton Clay. Stan has taught photography and post-processing skills for many years. He will present an introduction to layers, masks, selections and blend modes using Photoshop and Photoshop Elements as the post-processing apps for demonstrating these features.

The session covers how using these features can be of benefit in restoring old pictures, in creating new images from existing images, and will help you learn to use selections and masks to fix problem images.

Photographer Needed

Hardly a week goes by when we don’t receive at least one request for a referral. Sometimes people need a portrait, other times they want a small event documented. All kinds of photography work is needed and our club is seen a a potential source. We do have a wide variety of interests and experience in our club and many of our members are doing professional work. It would help if we had a list that shows the interests and skill sets of those who can provide photo work and are ready to take assignments.

If you are interested in being in the referral pool, use the form below to help us get started in building a resource pool. If we get enough participants we can ad a page to our website with this information.
