with Greg Randall
Wednesday, October 6; 4:30–6:30pm CT
Create a covered one-page book filled with your own photographs in this one-night virtual workshop. Learn how to prepare and arrange photographs in Adobe Photoshop to create the desired sequence and orientation of images in your finished book, as well as tips and tricks for at-home printing that can be used in a variety of book projects.
At the end of the workshop you’ll have a miniature book of your own photos—a collection of Instagram images, a portfolio of recent work, and more—your imagination is the limit! Participants need basic computer and Adobe Photoshop skills (placing, rotating, cropping images), along with access to a computer and printer. Basic bookbinding skills (scoring, cutting, and folding) are helpful. After demonstrating each technique, the teaching artist will allow time for participants to perform the step themselves and ask questions. Participants are asked to prepare photos in advance. Instructions are included on the materials list linked below.
