The Northwest College Photographic Communications program is offering a weeklong summer photography class in their facilities, which includes Mac computer labs and a daylong photo excursion in the field. The course takes place June 17-21 on the Powell campus.

“No matter your current Adobe Photoshop CC or Lightroom skill level, this summer intensive workshop will help hone your digital photography skill set for the fine details of capturing, downloading, editing and printing high quality digital images,” explained Dr. Christine Garceau, NWC associate professor of photography.

The course, Digital Photography Summer Intensive: From Capture to Print, reviews new Adobe Bridge and Photoshop CC 2019 updates and introduces workflow strategies through Adobe Lightroom Classic.

In addition, the summer intensive workshop will also help photography enthusiasts of all skill levels learn current industry practices including the organizational strategies necessary for file management, color space control, white balance selections, editing, compositing, archiving and printing on Epson P800 printers.

A field day of photographing the Big Horn Basin ecosystem will help students capture plenty of images to work with during workshop lectures and exercises.

By the end of the week, students will have photographed, selected and edited their favorite images to be printed and matted for display in a “farewell” exhibition.

The course begins Monday, June 17. For those interested in registering, visit
