Photos to get the dynamic touch in Louisville

August 12, 2013 by  

An introductory class on photo editing will see in the weekend at the Block Party Handmade Boutique, 560 South Fourth Street, Louisville.

Ideally for any graphic designer or print company worker who wants to build their skills, the class will offer instruction on basic photo editing information, and guests can learn how to make adjustments to color, contrast and tone, and learn how ordinary photos can often be made better using good cropping techniques which can often change the focus of the subject in the picture. Students will also discover how to make touch ups on photos and take an average photo from drab to spectacular.

Students may bring their own laptop with photo editing software to work on. The workshop is being led by Mickie Winters, who was a recent winner for her work on Lou Magazine by the Professional Society of Journalists.

It takes place at 5:30 pm on Friday, August 16. For more information, call (502) 589-1133.

Locals can also expand technical skills by learning how to solder and create a Freeduino at a workshop at 6:30 pm on the same evening at Lvl1, 814 E. Broadway, Louisville.

The concepts of basic soldering and basic micro controlling will be covered. A Freeduino USB kit will be completed, which can be taken home and is a programmable device operating via a USB A-B cable provided in class.

All materials are included in the cost of admission. Students are encouraged to bring their own laptop and soldering iron, but they will be available in class if they do not have them.
