Take digital image-making to new levels! Adventure out to photograph the landscapes, seascapes, architecture, towns, and forests of the Maine coast. Students collaborate in the field and in the lab to review selected images on camera LCDs and discuss exposure, composition, lens selection, quality of light, and the limitations and advantages of digital image-making. Together, the class discusses aesthetics, printing options, workflow, and explores Photoshop's advanced tools. We will work toward creating heartfelt images with the knowledge and guidance needed to make them more professional.
This workshop blends fieldwork in digital image capture, exposure, and composition, with critiques and lab work in image processing, printing, and presentation - all in a week packed with information and inspiration.
Primary emphasis is on empowering participants to get past technological hurdles and pursue their vision.
