Bring your laptop with Adobe Photoshop loaded so you can work along with Ric's demonstrations and then apply them to your own photographs with guidance from a pro. You'll gain valuable knowledge and experience from this 4 hour workshop that you can use to restore any of those old beat up or faded photographs. Emphasis is on old BW photos. Lessons learned can be applied to color restoration as well.
Attendees will receive a complimentary copy of Ric's book, The Golden Hub, Sacramento. The book includes two hundred and seventy-nine restored historic photos from the 1800's, one on each page. The text is compiled from first person accounts taken from journals, letters written home and news clippings from the era along with the writings of 19th Century historians.
Note: Details on the best procedure for scanning your old photographs will be provided to those who sign up.
