Description: This class will focus on the various techniques that I use in Photoshop when working with color and light in my images. Students will learn how to maximize the potential in their images by adding dramatic light and how to use different color grading techniques. I will show you how to use the various types of adjustment layers to add, modify and change the colors and/or tones in your images as well as how to “paint” with color and how to use color gradients and color fill layers. I will also cover fixing problems such as color casts in your images and how to use selective color to modify existing colors, such as turning a summer scene into fall. I will also cover ways to modify, shape and add light in Photoshop to add interest and depth to images and I will show you my preferred method for dodging and burning and adding custom vignettes. This is a repeat of a popular class from earlier this year and I hope you can join me. Please note that due to Covid, this class will be taught on-line using Zoom.

Betty Wiley is a freelance photographer who resides in Massachusetts on Cape Cod in the beautiful, little town of Yarmouth Port. Originally from Las Vegas, Nevada, she moved to Massachusetts over 30 years ago and bought a home on the Cape with her husband in 2006. She quickly fell in love with the natural beauty of the area and since then, she has spent countless hours exploring the Cape with her camera. She believes that good light is often key to a successful photograph. Often, the storms that move through the area create dramatic light and beautiful clouds and when that happens, she usually grabs her camera and hops in her car as the skies begin to clear. Betty is a frequent contributor to a number of magazines on Cape Cod and the South Shore. She was featured in a photo essay which appeared in the July (2011) issue of Cape Cod magazine which showcased her images taken on Cape Cod and the islands. She has numerous magazine assignments and covers to her credit and is an experienced speaker, instructor and workshop leader and has received numerous accolades for her teaching and on-location workshops.
