The workshop "Basic introduction of Photoshop, with combination of collage technique"
given by Ai Sato (www.studioaisato.com) is focused on:
Understanding the possibility of what could Photoshop does to help achieving to create the visual with altered images, which could be the original photography or found images in internet, to be able to give another perspective than being mere standard images.
In order to be able to handle the program from more focused on artistic point of view, it is important to understand basic composition, sense or idea of depth within 2-dimensional surface. The workshop focuses on the importance of technique of collages, which method is related to the layering process of Photoshop. I would like to introduce the program as one of a "tool", as equal to any of the physical methods to achieve artistic visual. Thus, learning the composition, color combination, creates depth within 2D surface would be the important focus points during the workshop, not only just learning to manipulate images.
