Your excitement will flourish during this class as you begin to transform multiple photos into a creative image!

Using the images shot during Part 1, Munroe will explain and model the editing tools she frequents in photoshop, then guide students as they practice from home. Some editing strategies that will be covered are: “cutting out” objects, adding a different background, creating a dress (or clothing), adding shadows, using the the smudge and blur tool and more. Students registering solely for Part 2 will be provided images to edit. Student who participated in Part 1 may use the images they shot or the images provided.
