Recommended prerequisite: Basic knowledge of your camera; tripod; interest in editing and printing
All Skill Levels Welcome
Group Size: Limited to 6-8 attendees
Printing your photos will make you a better photographer. The first step to creating a great print is by understanding how to create a great photograph in the field.
Capture-To-Print is an intermediate workshop that focuses not only on photography, but also editing and printing! Half photo workshop, half editing and printing, we will take you through the whole process–from Capture to Print— to demonstrate what is important in the field, how to effectively process photos, and why printing is a necessity.
We will begin in our classroom with lighting setups and a variety of flowers, which we will photograph over the course of the morning. We will transition from photographing to editing in the early afternoon. Attendees are encouraged to bring their computers–laptops or all-in-ones are fine (iMacs are welcome)–in order to do their own editing. Attendees should have Adobe Lightroom and/or Photoshop, or a comparable program on their computer. We will be available to help with the processing of images during this time. We will then view these edits, critique, and discuss them with the rest of the class while also creating 13×19″ prints.
This will be a fun and challenging workshop that will walk you through the full process of creating a photograph. The process of printing is integral to developing one’s photographic vision.
Approximate schedule for the day:
9am- Introductions, discussion of lighting and macro techniques
9:30am- Photographing of flowers, macro
12pm- Begin editing (Attendees are encouraged to bring a bagged lunch and take a short break during this time)
2pm- Review, critique, and printing
