This workshop is perfect for emerging and experienced photographers who are driven to make better photographs. Our week is a marriage of guided fall color shooting and learning the best of Adobe Lightroom. Through presentations, demos, reviews and patient coaching, students immerse themselves into an exciting week of inspired play, practice and deep learning. On shooting trips to record the light and textures of mid-coastal Maine, David shares many tools, options and favorite techniques for capturing each subject in the changing light we encounter. Returning to the digital lab with fresh images and excitement, participants learn how to convert, edit and organize captures, and expertly control qualities of color, lighting, sharpness, noise and distortion, precise split-toning and artful B+W conversions. Lightroom's fully-editable presets allow the automation of favorite techniques and 'brilliant mistakes' with a single click. Creating organized image collections, and transferring images between computers is also covered.
We spend our week learning, shooting, discovering, dining, sharing and mingling with other amazing creatives on campus. With our best images, we learn how Lightroom's presentation modules can create slideshows, web galleries or prints. Students end the week with a deepened understanding of creative possibilities, efficient workflows, unforgettable memories and a refreshed passion for personal and professional photography.
Bring any camera that shoots in RAW mode, energy, curiosity and anything awesome to share. A free trial of the latest Lightroom can be downloaded online. For all content and skills-related questions, contact Dave at: firstname.lastname@example.org
