Prep and Complete Your Images for Competition
with Michael Joseph
TUESDAY, AUGUST 7th at 7:00 PM (Rescheduled from June 18th)

We all know that winning image competitions takes a lot of effort from start to finish. The photography has to be a step above beautiful, the right images need to be selected and from there every effort must be made to coax out the best of it through impeccable retouching and presentation. It’s not too difficult to create images that will score between 78-82 but when you want to score big, it’s all about perfection and giving the judges the confidence they need to place your score out of the ballpark. This class is all about “finishing the job”. Including… placement & size of your image… the choice of matting, color, texture and shading… and the creation of strokes and borders! Plus… discussion and suggestions of giving your image just the right title! Class limit 20
