Instructor notes: Due to the compressed 6-week schedule, please be aware that this will be an incredibly intensive course. We'll be hitting the ground running once it starts, so please prepare by procuring the following: 1) digital SLR camera with manual and RAW capabilities; 2) hi-speed internet & web access; 3) desktop or laptop computer; and, 4) Adobe Photoshop Creative Cloud or Creative Suite 6 with Adobe Bridge. You may want to access Adobe's Creative Cloud website to consider your options (particularly the Educational Plans). This class focuses on Photoshop's Adobe Camera Raw editing capabilities. Bridge will be used for file management.
