After attending the Rocky Mountain School of Photography and working as a professional photographer for over 14 years I have frequently had clients, colleagues, friends and family express frustration with their cameras and the pictures they take. After the fun and success of the previous classes I decided to put on another one! This will be a two day class with the first day focusing on camera settings and shooting. We will have a child model to practice on towards the end of the day. On day two we will focus our entire day on editing and the different techniques you can use in photoshop. Knowledge of photoshop is not necessary but will be helpful if you have some idea of an editing program.
This workshop is for anyone wanting to advance their photography skills with a full weekend of learning with hands-on training! This class is designed to teach you to take your camera off of program/auto and have fun doing it! We start with the fundamentals and technical stuff. We will have a wonderful catered lunch, then head out to go on location with a model to try out everything we learned. The last couple of hours will be back at the studio for review and critiquing our pictures. A Q&A and feedback session will wrap up day one! On day two we will be in the studio working on post processing. If you missed day one try to bring in some pictures on a disk or memory card so that you can have a chance to work with your own images. Laptops with an editing program such as photoshop or elements is encouraged but not necessary.
