For this month’s meeting, we have arranged for Jonathan Vaines to demonstrate some key Photoshop techniques including the use of some of the blend modes for lightening, dodging and burning and halo removal. Jonathan will then show how to use layers to add elements, apply textures, etc and how to use the ‘Blend If’ feature. Blend modes are one of the most powerful tools in Photoshop, so the evening will be very instructive and there will be something for everyone to learn whatever type of photography they do.
The results of the second of our post – Christmas pdi series, held on 3 March 2021 are now available on our Competitions page or just Click Here
