There are no available registration dates at this time.

This workshop will be held in an online format using the Zoom Platform.

The workshop will begin on Monday morning with a review of everyone’s work, and discussion of photographic goals.

Each day Alison will touch on various topics of interest to the group – these will likely include developing your own creative vision, editing your images in the Develop module of Lightroom Classic, and fine art photography. And since photography is very much a meeting of both the creative and the technical, in that vein Alison will also cover shooting settings and tips, equipment demos, as well as workflow from import to export with an emphasis on the Library module of Lightroom Classic.

Early afternoon will be devoted to daily assignments, with time for shooting and editing on your own. We’ll then reconvene mid-afternoon for a daily critique of your new images.

Mid-to-late in the week, Alison will be available for one-on-one Zoom sessions with each participant, to cover topics of their choice as well as give the opportunity for additional image review on an individual basis.

Once or twice during the week a late-afternoon group Zoom meeting will give the class an opportunity, in a more informal setting, to cover additional topics and have your questions answered while enjoying your favorite beverage – it will be along the lines of our own “virtual-happy-hour” version of gathering in the dining pavilion on the Maine Media campus. These gatherings might also include an opportunity for Alison to share some of her personal work with you in the spirit of the evening faculty presentations which are such an important part of the workshop experience in Rockport.

 The week will end on Friday afternoon with a “Best Of” slideshow of your week’s work.
