PPSDC Online – August 11, 2020

August 11, 2020 @ 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Join PPSDC online for a talk by Irene Bowers entitled Creativity During Covid.

Evening Program

Whether you are a practicing professional or a passionate hobbyist (or both), the global pandemic has physically impacted our role as photographers. Social distancing, however, does not need to mask our identity as creatives. In this presentation, Irene Bowers reaches beyond the shutter and into the world of Photoshop demonstrating the tools and techniques she incorporates in developing timeless pieces of art. During this fun evening, she will take the mask off of how she created a few of her images. Let’s have fun! We’re all in this together!
