Sedona AZ (July 23, 2013) – Learn to create top-notch photos this summer with award-winning fine art and commercial photographer Susie Reed in classes designed to help photographers of all levels better understand and get comfortable with their cameras and Photoshop.

She’s starting with “Photo Shoot Fundamentals” on July 25th from 1- 3.

Next, on July 28th, from 10 5, is “Photoshop Basics For Beginners”, the first of three classes being held in the computer lab at Yavapai College where they have full versions of Photoshop and Photoshop Elements for students to use.

In Reed’s “Photoshop Best Tools” class on July 30th from 10 5, she’ll demonstrate and help students use a set of very effective tools to enhance and correct most photos, even challenging ones. Knowledge of these tools can help people use Photoshop without getting overwhelmed by its many options.
