This photography workshop is an intense immersion into digital photography with one of its pioneers. In five days you will go from perhaps not even understanding what a RAW file is, to making well-crafted and thoughtful prints.
Fieldwork, extensive lecture and lab work will fill our time together. Every student will have full access to their own workstation in the lab. Topics include practical experience with digital exposure, RAW processing, image editing, color management and printing.
We will work in the field and in the lab interacting with what has been done in the field. We will look at the real world, ask much of our work and press on to make it as strong and sensitive as possible.

“Steve is arguably the first digital photographer--I vividly remember the day in January 1994 when he told me that he’d shot his last piece of film. In this sorely-needed book, Steve argues eloquently and passionately that digital photography is photography first, digital second, and places it in the wider context of photography’s history and evolution.” -Bruce Fraser
