Ken Fisher

It’s great to meet you. How brilliant it is that in this huge enormous internetty world, you’ve found your way to my bit. My name is Ken Fisher. I am a photographer and Adobe Certified Trainer in Photoshop and Lightroom. I am a qualified teacher and teach photography, Photoshop and Lightroom at colleges as well as 1 to 1 private tuition.

My passion is in crafting professional photographs of all types of subject, and enjoy the myriad of challenges that photography provides, from glamour and studio portraiture, lighting a food still life photograph, arranging a group portrait or investigating the ideal viewpoint for a Landscape or Cityscape.

I found many years ago that images despite your best intentions sometimes fall short of what you expected. It was this that set me out on a road of discovery into the world of image editing with Photoshop and Lightroom.

My goals for passing on my passion and skills are twofold:
…. make it easy …… make it fun!

What else can I tell you? I love chocolate. I do like a well-chilled glass of Rosé. I adore the aroma of freshly brewed coffee. Could eat chocolate covered raisins until I burst. Did I say I love chocolate?

I love to watch the American crime dramas. I love to travel and explore new and diverse places and cultures and capture their essence of being, preferably while eating chocolate.

Oh and Chocolate!

Conference Program:

Photoshop Advanced Techniques & Tools

In this class we are going to take a deep dive into Advanced Photoshop, but exactly what do I mean by that, what does advanced mean? Let me explain that in the form of an example – The Driving Test.

When you take a driving test what does that mean? Well it means that you have convinced an instructor that you are competent to perform a series of manoeuvers safely in your chosen mobile killing machine, sorry car. Does this make you a safe driver, well no it means that you can perform a series of simple tasks in a certain order and in a certain time. You don’t start to learn how to drive until after you have passed your test.

Remember ! Before passing test: Hands on steering wheel at 10 to 2.

After passing test: Window open, elbow on window holding can of coke, steering with one hand and listening to your fave tunes at 120 decibels. In short over time you develop your own style of driving. Well learning Photoshop is a little like that only you are driving a computer and not an offensive weapon. You first need to learn the basics, tools and commands and what they do.

Then comes the advanced part, putting it all together to complete a project. This is important because a task can often be achieved in many different ways and with different tools. All will get you to the desired end point but some tools will not suit the task at hand so will take you longer to complete and in many cases be filled with much frustration.

So in this class I am going to show you how to drive Photoshop. How to select the best tool for the job and why. How to take your image editing to the next level in developing your own editing style which we like to call your workflow.
