How to Make Money with Photography (3 Sessions)
Wednesdays, May. 5, 12, 19 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
People are one of the most popular subjects for photographers. Back in the film days things were simple - you simply chose your film stock and the print lab took care of the rest. Today's digital photography simplifies many things but many people find Lightroom and Photoshop daunting when it comes to photography of people. This three-session course simplifies the use of Lightroom and Photoshop for people photography.
