Learn about your camera and the simple techniques for getting the most out of it.
Be sure to bring your camera so we can play with it.
Session 1 - 9:30-12:00 The first session covers is primarily about the camera. We look at the features and controls and how they work. It's a machine and this is an "operator's" workshop.
Session 2 - 1:30-4:00 In session two we go more into how to get good shots with your camera, like how to use those controls more creatively. We'll experiment. We will also spend some time talking about composition and how to see with a camera.
JUNE 16th - LEARNING LIGHTROOM (Two Sessions)
Processing your own photos adds a whole new level of enjoyment. Lightroom allows us to quickly and easily polish our photos and make them look much better than the way they come out of the camera.
Session 1 - 9:30-12:00 - Basics
Session One gets us into Lightroom and gets us started on organizing, managing and enhancing our photos. Photographers produce a lot of photos and it can be difficult to keep them organized. Lightroom is designed to make file management more efficient. It is also a powerful editing tool that helps us to improve the shots we get out of our cameras. We will walk through the whole process from importing our photos to doing quick and easy edits that make your shots look just smashing.
Session 2 - 1:30-4:00 - Advanced Techniques
Lightroom's mored advanced tools enable us to fine tune and customize our work. These tools are easy to use once you know your way around and a lot of fun. In the afternoon session we go through the photo enhancement tools as well as geotagging and various outputs including printing, slide shows and web galleries. It can be pretty addicting once you get started.
Bring your laptop and some photos you want to work on.
JUNE 23rd FIGURING OUT PHOTOSHOP (Two Sessions)
Photoshop is the best tool available for customizing and refining your photos. Like most powerful software, it is a vast collection of functions that in and of themselves are fairly simple and easy to use. The goal of this workshop is to give you a firm foundation for using it and learning what it can do for you.
Session 1 - 9:30-12:00 Basic Tools and Adjustments
In the morning session we open up Photoshop and get familiar with the tools we can use right away to work on our photos. We'll also look at how to make some the typical adjustments we are likely to use on our photographs.
Session 2 - 1:30-4:00 Layers and Actions
One of Photoshop's most useful functions is the ability to create and manipulate layers. During the afternoon we will work with layers and see how we can use them to enhance our photos. Actions are shortcuts for that allow us to complete a series of steps with just a single. We will take a look at some actions that come with Photoshop, specialty actions created by other Photoshop uses and we will learn how to make our own actions.
