From Capture to Print
Session 1: Thursdays: 10:30 - 1 pm
7/11 to 8/1
Session 2: Thursdays: 10:30 - 1 pm
8/8 to 8/29
Okay. You've learned Lightroom, and perhaps even some Photoshop, but now what? Whatever software you use, the hardest part is figuring out what an image needs. In this workshop we'll travel the journey from raw capture to final output. We'll look at images from each participant, discuss how the image was captured, what enhancements it needs and/or what problems need to be solved. In each class students will present both their process and their final print. Please note: There will be two 4-week sessions of this class. Because the process of editing and enhancing images is ongoing and because the workshop is about practicing skills, you can take either or both sessions.
Defining a Personal Vision
Tuesdays: 2:30 pm - 5:00 pm
7/9 to 8/6
Developing a personal style that blends inspiration, intention and technical skill is essential to the process of making art. In this workshop participants can choose to begin a new project or continue with a project that's already in progress. In our classroom critiques we will discuss how to edit, sequence and present a portfolio of images. Topics will include color, composition, the significance of light, print style and sequencing images for the greatest emotional impact.
Presentation and Marketing
Tuesdays: 2:30 - 5:00 pm
8/13 to 8/27
This workshop is designed for anyone who is serious about showing and selling their work. In a world that's so image saturated, it's difficult to know where to begin. This workshop will cover the who, where, what and when of presenting your work. Lectures and discussions will include: targeting submission opportunities, organizing portfolios for submission, writing an artist's statement, legally copyrighting images and planning a website.
