Photographer Susie Reed offers Photoshop tips in new SAC class

Saturday, March 19, 1-4 p.m., in the Sedona Arts Center South Classroom, spend an afternoon learning insider Photoshop tips from award winning photographer Susie Reed, who'll demonstrate tools and techniques she uses to create vibrant, beautiful photos.

She'll show effective ways to correct and enhance pictures, including how to brighten and enrich muddy, flat images. She'll help students turn good pictures into great ones by helping them understand some of Photoshop's capabilities. Participants will work with their own photos during the class, so they'll be able to see immediate results.

Please bring up to four photographs on a disk or flash drive to the workshop. If you have a laptop computer with Photoshop or Photoshop Elements installed please bring that as well.

Susie Reed has over 30 years experience as a fine art and commercial photographer. Her critically acclaimed pictures have been in major museums and galleries, in numerous publications and on an array of products. She's taught at California College of the Arts and San Francisco Art Institute, where she received her degree with honors in photography. Some of Susie Reed's photographs of prehistoric rock art are permanently dislpayed in Sedona Visitor and Information Centers through the generosity of a Sedona Arts and Cultural Commission Artist Project Grant. Many of her pictures of rock art and archeological sites are in the Coconino National Forest Archives. In addition to loving photographing ancient rock art and dwellings she also enjoys taking pictures of people, landscapes, flowers, vineyards and Farmer's Markets.
