The course runs on Wednesday evenings, 6.30-9pm.
The course fee is £180.

Course Content

This course provides a comprehensive general introduction to digital imaging using Adobe Photoshop. While the emphasis will be on processing photographic images and producing photographic composites, lessons will also cover graphic, typographic and web applications. We will familiarise ourselves with the Photoshop interface, gain confidence with the fundamental tools and methods, develop a solid understanding of key concepts (adjustments, selections/masks, layers). The course aims at covering a broad range of practices while also providing a theoretical grounding (resolution, file formats etc.). The course will culminate in a project to produce a high quality advertisement or poster of the student’s own design.

Haydn Appleby studied photography before taking degrees in the History of Art and in Cultural History.
