Event Details

April 4 – 7 2019 | NYC

New York City screams “URBAN” more than any other city core in North America. Whether it is an inner city streetscape, some of the tallest and most iconic buildings in the world, a compelling city scape, one of the world’s most urban parks, or the potential for street photography and building details, both modern and heritage that are unequalled, New York has it all!

In this workshop, Sharon will be teaching her Photoshop post processing techniques during hands on post processing sessions. Therefore, for optimal results, it is recommended that participants have basic knowledge of Layers, Masks and Selections in Photoshop. 

**If you feel that you would like to learn basic Photoshop or just brush up on your skills, please consider registering to the Photoshop Add-On that will be taught on April 4th. It will provide all the background Photoshop knowledge you will need in order to get the maximum benefit from the workshop.
