There are no available registration dates at this time.

“Just like magicians, the best photographers are always working to direct viewers’ attention. In fact, virtually all photographic enhancements – analog or digital – are forms of sleight-of-hand, developed to achieve the same goal: to subliminally focus attention on the important parts of the photograph.”
If we all use the same tools (cameras, light, computers), why do some photographers produce consistently exceptional work? Because they understand the magic necessary to transform what’s in front of the camera into a stunning photograph. Weekly assignments and practice time between classes will help you create stronger, more striking images – and master the Lightroom local adjustment tools needed to take your RAW files from “almost” to “WOW!”. Online lessons, critiques, and discussions are lively, friendly, and encouraging. Join us and take your Lightroom work to the next level.
This workshop is grown-up playtime for photographers. Let’s have fun together, going deeper: deeper into the pictures themselves, and deeper into the techniques we use to craft them. Say “yes” to making new friends, new images, and working on whatever the next step is for you, technically and metaphorically. Join us for this 5-week online workshop and learn something new – about photography, and about yourself.
This course is not for beginners. Participants should be familiar with Adobe Lightroom and have a current version installed on their computer. They should be entirely comfortable with computers and Zoom. They will need a digital camera and all accessories (cards, batteries, tripod, etc.), and a selection of 10 favorite images to share with the group in PDF form. Most importantly, participants will need lots of (organized) RAW files to practice on.

Instructor: Jean Miele
Jean "Gino" Miele's photographs explore the borderlands between fiction and reality, and reflect his lifelong interest in perception, spirituality and mysticism. His images remind us that moments of perfection are possible, and that we create our own reality. He believes every photograph is an act of transformation, and that the photographs we make tell us more about ourselves than about what was in front of the lens. Miele's photographs have appeared in thousands of publications. His artwork has been exhibited internationally, and acquired by collectors worldwide. Gino has taught for Adobe, Apple, ICP, Fuji, Anderson Ranch, and many others. His primary goals are to demystify digital technique and empower students to realize their own photographic vision.
