  • Editing and Enhancing Landscape and Nature Photography with Lightroom

    Class Code: UUU236

    Instructor: 
    Joe Brady
    Skill Level: 
    Everyone

    Oftentimes the best digital capture doesn’t look that great on the back of your camera. Why is this? Protecting the highlights in a high contrast scene makes the midtones and shadows appear murky and flat.

    Getting the best capture possible is a great place to start, but you need to know how to shape light, contrast and color to bring out the full beauty of your images. In this course, Sony Artisan Joe Brady will explain how to use all of the tools in the Lightroom Develop Module to turn good images into great ones!

    *Please note that class does NOT take place in the digital lab.
    *You may bring your own laptops with Lightroom installed if you'd like, but it is not necessary.

  • Fall Foliage and Covered Bridges of Lehigh Valley with Ron Wyatt

    Class Code: UUU514

    Instructor: 
    Ron Wyatt
    Skill Level: 
    Everyone

    The history of covered bridges in Pennsylvania can be traced back to European roots. The first covered bridge is thought to have been built in the mid 1300s between Germany and Switzerland. German immigrants brought the idea and design to this country. Covered bridges were usually named after the builders, local residents, or nearby businesses, which often were working gristmills along the waterways in the vicinity of the bridges. Bridges were covered to keep the plank roadways dry. Some also say the bridges were covered to resemble barns so that horses would be less hesitant to enter.

    Join Ron Wyatt and Unique Photo for a day of exploring and photographing some of Pennsylvania's covered bridges in the midst of Fall and its vibrant foliage!  Of the 200+ covered bridges still standing in Pennsylvania, seven excellent examples are community treasures in Lehigh Valley.  Capture the romantic quality of a time when life moved more slowly.

    *Limited to 10 registrants.
    *Van transportation is included and leaves promptly from Unique at 6:00am.
    *There will be some walking at each covered bridge stop, so please wear comfortable clothing and shoes.

Tiny plums, cherries, and paschal lambs appear in the display cases of pasticcerias. And in the old quarters of the island’s medieval cities, a week of processions and reenactments culminates in the bright festivities and folk dramas of Good Friday & an Easter Sunday inflected with ancient traditions. Experience the light and warmth of this cultural melting pot of an island on a trip especially designed for the photographer’s eye.
