Digital Photography SIG
Talk Adobe with Chris Bryant
7PM, Tuesday, August 28, 2018
Most of you have heard about (and maybe use) Adobe Photoshop. An
extension to Photoshop is Adobe Illustrator. Adobe Ilustrator is
graphic-driven software used primarily for creating vector graphics.
Developed alongside with Adobe Photoshop as a companion product,
Adobe Illustrator is used for creating logos, graphics, cartoons and
fonts for the photo-realistic layouts of Adobe Photoshop.
Christopher Bryant is a local educator at Lafayette High School where
he teaches classes tailored toward the graphic arts. He has obtained
three degrees from the University of Kentucky which includes his
bachelors in Arts and Arts Education as well as his Masters in
Education. Christopher has been an active artist in the digital
community outside of teaching. Previously, he has showcased a variety
of work throughout the community, photographed for various private
clients, created album and poster art for local musicians, and is
currently working with a well renown top designer.
Chris has been asked to share his knowledge about industry standard
programs in an everchanging digital work environment. His skill and
knowledge of the Adobe programs have helped him as well as former
students to compete with other modern designers. His goal for today
is to share his knowledge of these advanced programs and break the
stereotypes associated with their difficulty and complexity.
Our photo contest this month will be "In Need of Repair". Come up with
an innovative picture and email it to email@example.com no later than
August 27, 2018.
Hope to see you at CKCS on August 28 at 7 PM. Bring a friend.
