Join us Monday April 23rd for a special Photoshop presentation with international renowned photographer and author, Lee Varis. Lee is a photo-illustrator, now working in the Boston area, who has been involved in commercial photography in Hollywood for over 40 years. He started working with computer imaging over 20 years ago doing work featured on movie posters, album covers, and other entertainment industry advertising. He is responsible for the moth on the “Silence of the Lambs” movie poster, as well as photos of the Starship Enterprise for the Star Trek movies!

Spend an evening with Lee, and come away with years of Photoshop expertise not available anywhere else!


Lee will explore a new image enhancement strategy he calls “The 10-Channel Workflow” showcasing several step-by-step projects. You will learn the power of channel blending using the 10 grayscale channels of the three major Photoshop workspaces: RGB, LAB, and CMYK. Discover techniques for:

• darkening blue skies & lightening foliage naturally
• lightening dark skin and darkening light skin
• introducing natural highlights and shadows to enhance 3D shape
• enhancing color intensity using Lab
• de-saturating shadows to enhance 3D contrast naturally
• completely re-shaping tone, contrast, and color for dramatic effects
