Upcoming Classes and Workshops for 2015-2016

Pittsburgh

When I'm not out shooting or back in my studio processing and printing images, my next favorite thing about photography is sharing my enthusiasm, knowledge and experiences in the classes and workshops I teach. For me, photography learning never ends and that's one of the most enjoyable things about photography. If we don't constantly hone our “craft,” our skills and our vision, we grow stale. On my website I've just posted the "classes and workshops" that I will be teaching over the next number of months. Here are the highlights:

LightroomLightroom 6 Overview
September 19th, 2015

This seminar is an overview of Lightroom’s 7 modules, with emphasis on the Library, Develop and Print modules. This is a demonstration and presentation, rather than a hands-on workshop. (If you want a comprehensive, hands-on, 3-day LR workshop, see "Lightroom Intensive" below.) After attending LR Overview, you will have a thorough understanding of Lightroom’s features and capabilities and be in a better position to decide whether Lightroom is an appropriate digital asset management tool and a raw image processing tool for your purposes. More information about the "Lightroom Overview" class can be found "HERE."

Sislen - Epson 9900 - StudioPrinting the Fine Art Print
October 10th, 2015

In this age of the internet and smart phones, the darkroom has all but disappeared and fewer and fewer prints are being made. I don't believe the true beauty of the photograph can be seen until a quality print is made. This mini-workshop will help users get the most out of their digital printers and printing materials. The quality of the print is directly related to one’s knowledge of image processing and image preparation prior to printing. More information about "Printing the Fine Art Print" can be found "HERE."

Matting and Framing
October 17th, 2015

You’ve taken your award winning photograph, spent hours processing it to your total satisfaction and now it’s time to take it to the framer or for you to mat and frame your masterpiece yourself. In this workshop you’ll learn how to mat and frame, but also about the materials (mat board, frames, glass, backing, etc.) used in framing and matting photographs and the sources and costs of these materials. More information about the "Matting and Framing" class can be found "HERE."

LightroomLightroom Intensive
October 23rd, October 24th, October 25th, 2015

Lightroom (LR) is THE software program of choice for both organization and management of your thousands, or tens of thousands of digital images, as well as for image editing. If you’re new to LR, you will leave the workshop with a full understanding and hands-on experience using this extremely powerful, but user-friendly software. If you’ve been using LR, but not taking full advantage of all of its power, you will gain a greater in-depth knowledge of LR and learn many of the short-cuts and tricks that will enable you to become a power-user of this amazing program. More information about the "Lightroom Intensive" workshop can be found "HERE."

LightroomLightroom - Beyond Lightroom Intensive!
November 21st, 2015

This workshop was created for those who have taken my "Lightroom Intensive" workshop, or who are advanced Lightroom users. If you want to take your Lightroom skills to the next level, this workshop is for you. The purpose of this workshop is to go beyond LR’s basic capabilities and focus on advanced LR features that you may not even be aware of. Many tips and tricks will be discussed and it will be an great opportunity to ask all those questions that are are keeping you from becoming the ultimate power user of this incredible image management and image editing program. More information about the "Beyond Lightroom Intensive!" workshop can be found "HERE."

Photoshop logoPhotoshop - Adjustment Layers, Curves and Masks
December 5th, 2015

The three Photoshop tools that I use in editing each and every one of my images are adjustment layers, curves and masks. If they are not an important part of your image editing, and you’d like to take your image editing beyond where you are, gaining a thorough knowledge and understanding of adjustment layers, curves and masks is the answer. More information about "Photoshop - Adjustment Layers, Curves and Masks" can be found "HERE."

LightroomLightroom 5 Import and Develop
January 9th, 2016

The two most used LR capabilities are the "Import" and "Develop" functions. "Importing" brings information about your images into LR's catalog, and "Develop" is the incredibly powerful image editing module. This small, hands-on workshop is for the LR user who would like to be able to better edit their images using the full capabilities of LR. There are many advanced features of the Develop module that can make your average image into an outstanding photograph. More information about the "Lightroom Import and Develop" workshop can be found "HERE."

Belvedere at DawnPanoramas - From Shooting to Processing
April 16th, 2016

For many subjects that we shoot, the panoramic format adds a degree of realism and impact. Panoramas require a different way of seeing, a different approach to composition, specific shooting and camera setup techniques and software knowledge to “stitch” together the multiple images that will ultimately make up your composite photograph. This workshop will be a combination of classroom instruction, in-the-field shooting and then returning to the classroom for instruction on stitching and image processing. More information about the "Panoramas" workshop can be found "HERE."
