Who is this for?: Participants should arrive with a working knowledge of their preferred programs. Some assistance can be offered to Mac users but Chris Oaten doesn’t soil his fingers on the Windows platform, so those users are on their own. Ability to use manual setting on your DSLR and, preferably, a solid understanding of your camera’s histogram. This workshop will cover a lot of information and put participants’ skills to the test in a collaborative workgroup. Be prepared to work.
