This four-part series takes you from the beginning. Starting with getting organized, you will learn about each of Lightroom's Modules and have an introduction to the tools available. Each successive class will take you from basic to intermediate to advanced edits of both Landscape and Portrait images and will end with getting your images printed from both your own desktop printer and from a photo lab. Once you master Lightroom, you are sure to find it your go-to place for many of your complete photo edits.

    Class Code: UUU7107

    Skill Level:

    In the world of modern digital photography we often become critical of images that have been digitally manipulated or "Photoshop-ed". This program with Nick Palmieri will review modern methods of digital manipulation and compare it to historical methods of image making.

    We will discuss "processing" versus "manipulation". We will also look at the value of plug-ins, actions, and advanced imaging programs in your photo preparation. We will spend time discussing (and possibly debating) the topic of when "enough is enough" and when manipulation "crosses the line". This program is meant to be fun and provoke thought.

  • Intro to Image Editing in Adobe Photoshop with Joe Brady

    Class Code: UUU228

    Instructor: 
    Joe Brady
    Skill Level: 
    Everyone

    While Adobe Lightroom is an important place to start, there are many edits, enhancements and corrections that only Photoshop can accomplish. This series of classes will take you from the beginning with an introduction to Photoshop tools, but perhaps more importantly, provide you with a workflow to follow when starting an image edit.

    You will learn all about the real power of Photoshop - layers, masks, blending modes, and selections - and how to put them to use with both Landscape/Nature and Portrait images. From basic image edits, to color corrections to reshaping, removing and individually editing selection in an image, Photoshop is limited only by your imagination once you learn how to approach your edits.

    Four classes won't make you a master of everything Adobe Photoshop, but Joe's approach to teaching and using this software will provide you with a firm base that you can grow with and adapt to your image editing needs and desires.

    Includes 4 Wednesday evening classes:
    · Class One: April 25th (6:30pm - 8:00pm)
    · Class Two: May 2nd (6:30pm - 8:00pm)
    · Class Three: May 9th (6:30pm - 8:00pm)
    · Class Four: May 16th (6:30pm - 8:00pm)

    *Specific topics for each class session are detailed below.
    *Classes will take place in the main classroom (not the digital lab). You may bring your own laptop to follow along, but it is NOT necessary.
    *Classes can also be purchased a la carte at $59 per class. To do so, please email university@uniquephoto.com or call 973-377-6454.

  • EXPO: Creative Macro Photography with Jamie Davidson (AIP)

    Class Code: UUU7103

    Skill Level: 
    Everyone

    There's an artist lurking inside every photographer, whether they know it or not. In the arena of "smalls", macro photography has a way of drawing the artist out. Whether you love to shoot flowers, relegated rust, feathers, coins or nuts and bolts, how you choose to design your image can make all the difference. What tool you choose to use is equally influential. The most powerful tools of any artist/photographer are found within – life experience, interests and imagination. Balancing the serious and playful or the technical focus and going with the flow can be challenging. The beauty of macro photography is that it can be done anywhere, anytime, and it serves both the technician and the artist.

    In this session, Jamie will share her approach to macro photography, regardless of subject matter. The key is to "connect," and push yourself beyond perceived boundaries so that your images express your personal vision. Creative tools beyond the macro lens include Lensbaby optics (Velvet 56, Soft focus), making use of diopters (Canon 500D, Nikon 6T) and lighting techniques. Jamie will also discuss extending your vision beyond the camera with tools such as Topaz Impression, Texture Effect, and more. Your inner artist awaits.

  • Understanding Your Camera III: White Balance and Composition

    Class Code: UUU201

    Instructor: 
    Michael Downey
    Skill Level: 
    Beginner

    Knowing all the science and mathematics behind photography can only take you so far. The art of photography is 90 percent seeing and 10 percent photographing. Students will learn the vital aspects and rules of image composition and graphic design as they apply to taking photographs.

    This class will go over the essentials of white-balance and composition. Learn how to analyze the color temperature of light and how it affects your photographs. Your DSLR camera won't always be able to accurately reproduce colors which is where proper white-balancing comes into play. While there might be preset white-balance options in your camera, you will learn how to set up a custom white-balance enabling you to get the proper color in any lighting situation.

    *Please note that this class is NOT for point-and-shoot cameras.

  • Understanding Your Camera III: White Balance (Hoboken)

    Class Code: UUUH105

    Instructor: 
    Michael Downey
    Skill Level: 
    Everyone

    This class takes place at our HOBOKEN location. If you want to register for the class at Fairfield, click here.

    Knowing all the science and mathematics behind photography can only take you so far. The art of photography is 90 percent seeing and 10 percent photographing. Students will learn the vital aspects and rules of image composition and graphic design as they apply to taking photographs.

    This class will go over the essentials of white-balance and composition. Learn how to analyze the color temperature of light and how it affects your photographs. Your DSLR camera won't always be able to accurately reproduce colors which is where proper white-balancing comes into play. While there might be preset white-balance options in your camera, you will learn how to set up a custom white-balance enabling you to get the proper color in any lighting situation.

    *Please note that this class is NOT for point-and-shoot cameras.
