    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)

  • 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.

    Everyone

    Whether you're looking at a few seconds or a few minutes (or more), long exposures have the potential to transform a seemingly ordinary scene into something special. Having the right tools and knowing how and when to use them (and getting out to practice) will add another dimension to your photography.

    This session will cover the tools needed and steps to follow for successful long exposures. Jamie will discuss equipment, including neutral density (ND) filters, and techniques and provide ideas and situations to be on the lookout for long exposures. Learn simple ways to calculate exposures, recognize potential for creating ethereal images using long exposures and practical ways to achieve best results. Wherever you are, there are subjects and situations that lend themselves to long exposures.
