“If you want a rainbow, you got to put up with the rain.”
Two Days – September 24 & 25, 2021 From 11:00am – 1:00pm & 3:00pm – 5:00pm EST
Sometimes all it takes is slowing down to the speed of life that allows us to see the bigger picture of the world around us. I have found that one of the biggest life lessons is that there is just as much grandeur in a simple plainness, the confines of our backyard, as there is in a sweeping gesture like the Grand Canyon or the Taj Mahal.
The goal of this two-day weekend workshop is to see a small moment in a big way, to learn the considerations needed to capture that moment, and how to create an image from that capture to a file ready for output. It’s taking that moment “that takes you” and making it into an image that causes others to accuse your expression of being “Art”. Simply put, the focus is shooting and then editing images ranging from single capture to multiple captures as we explore just how big a small world is.
These classes will be a shooting intensive/shooting theory intensive workshop with the focus being primarily on capturing and documenting the “art” to be found as close as your backyard. Because in reality, you do not have to travel to faraway and exotic places to create beautiful images. A breathtaking image is as close to you as just opening the back door.
We will endeavor to explore the tools, from the expensive to simple, affordable solutions, the capture techniques, from complex to simple, and what considerations you need to make at the point of capture to generate files to create images that will take the viewer the way the image took you.
*Please note Lightroom will not be harmed in this workshop though that cannot be said for other Adobe products and other image editing software.*
