Photoshop is the engine that drives digital photography today. This four-hour course will introduce the basic operation and functionality of Photoshop’s toolbar, menus and pallets. We will answer questions and help resolve some of the frustrations many experience while trying to get Photoshop working to its fullest potential. Don’t miss this opportunity to receive hands-on instruction to ignite your digital creativity!

This course will not be using a digital lab, however participants are encouraged to bring their own laptops loaded with Photoshop to follow along with the processes that will be demonstrated on screen. (This is not mandatory.)

Instructor Lou Adzima is a former Navy photographer whose assignments have included both still and motion picture work. Working as a ground and aerial photographer, his naval training included both B&W and color processing and printing and camera repair. At the time of his retirement, Lou served as the Pacific Fleet Imaging Command Departmental Head of Imaging and Information Systems. He concluded his 38-year Navy career by teaching Photoshop to U.S. Navy Photographers for seven years. Lou currently operates his own studio in Jamul, California.

Fee: $60

4th of July

Deinna & I wish you all a Happy & Safe Holiday. We are finishing the remodel of the garden shed and looking forward to relaxing by the pool this summer.

But, as we enjoy this day's celebration, please remember all of our service personnel serving away from their homes today, and their fallen brothers and sisters who have given their lives for our country.

Our prayers are with them as they gallantly stand watch for us.

God Bless America, today and always.
