Getting more fun out of Photography

"Photoshop!" So useful it has become a verb.  Lightroom is a great start for improving your photos and Photoshop lets you take it to the next level.

Session 1 - 9:30-12:00
In the morning session we get right into the various tools and take a look at just what each of them does for us.  We will also see how to enhance our photos using Image Adjustment functions.
Session 2 - 1:30-4:00
Session two is a little more advanced.  We'll look a little deeper at some of the tools and dive into using Layers and Actions.  They aren't especially hard and can be really fun to use.

Bring your laptop and some photos you want to work on.

MARCH 28  - DIGITAL BASICS  (Two Sessions) - 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.


This workshop is all about the Hunterdon Places photo project and how to get great documentary photographs.  On April 21st and 22nd photographers will fan out across the county to capture the essence of 12 towns in Hunterdon County.  We will map out the towns and drill down to see just where we will shoot and what to expect.

A big part of the workshop will be to examine what makes a great documentary photograph and how to create it from the planning to the presentation.  We will take a look at some of the great photographers, how they showed us our world and how we can take advantage of techniques they used.

This workshop is offered in Frenchtown at Brokaw Photography during the morning (9-12) on both April 7 and April 14 and then again in the afternoon (1:30-4) in Flemington at the Hunterdon Chamber of Commerce on Main St.

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.

Workshop Sessions are $69 each or $125 for both workshops on the same day.
