Digital Workflow From Capture to Output
Goal: Give people a concrete, repeatable digital workflow from capture to output focused only on the tools and techniques they need to get the job done.
Topics will include smart image capture, saving, archiving, labeling, organizing images, proper processing in Lightroom or ACR, fine tuning in photoshop using layers, masks, blending modes and refined selections, obtaining a color managed workflow from capture to output, and advanced techniques (HDR, panoramas, photoshop techniques, etc.).
Developing and achieving your own style, vision, and voice
Goal: Encourage photographers to develop their own distinctive style, voice and vision, give them the tools, techniques to get there, and teach them how to shoot strategically in order to achieve those goals.
Topics will include art vs. craft, what makes a great photo and what it takes to give them something extra, learning how to visualize your images and tell stories, learning the basic compositional rules for nature photography and then how to break them for maximum impact, how to shoot at the edges of the light, and the nuts and bolts of achieving those images along with a constant focus on shooting strategically. We will include techniques on shooting landscapes, wildlife, motion, abstracts, night and sky, as well as how to visualize output and end use at the time of capture.
We'll be meeting at the Trinity River Audubon Center - a world class facility with large PR staff. Sean is their official photographer with his own key to the front gate. No food services available, bring your own lunch, drinks, and snacks.
