Denver Photoshop Lessons

Expand your imagination with image editing...

Adobe Photoshop is the undisputed king of photography enhancement. The options which Photoshop can offer you are as varied as your artistic imagination. However, Photoshop is not an easy program to learn. It's one of the more complex programs on the market, and as such, it is best to get started with some proper training.

Big Sun Lessons differs from most by putting you immediately to work on actual "real life" usage of the program ("emersion training").   Within the first hour we will be using Photoshop to manipulate photographs, enhance flawed images and more.  The "sample projects" are specifically designed to introduce you to the basic tools and practices that you'll need in order to move forward toward more complex skills.

The classes listed below cover the basics that you should become acquainted with before venturing into deeper waters.

Your Instructor


My goal is always to teach WHY a technique works, not just HOW it's done. This is the fundamental difference between Big Sun training and most other photo courses who teach only by route. By learning the reasons behind the practice, you are able to move forward on your own, breaking away from the mundane and expanding your creativity.

 As with any service you should research what/whom you are investing in to ensure the right fit.

I encourage you to review my own work before signing up for any photography class.
