Upcoming Photo Workshops
I’ll be teaching or assisting in three different photo workshops in October at the Oklahoma Fall Arts Institute at the beautiful Quartz Mountain State Park lodge. This is a beautiful location, teeming with landscape potential, colorful small towns, and interesting people. If you’ve seen my Lynda.com course Foundations of Photography: Composition, then you’ve seen a fairly detailed view of the Oklahoma Fall Arts Institute. Workshop details below.
Photography as Anthropology, October 10-13, 2013. I’ll be assisting Jeff Brouws in this course, where you’ll explore different types of documentary practices and then venture into surrounding townships and the countryside to apply these concepts.
Digital Photography with Dennis Darling, October 24-27, 2013. I’ll be assisting http://journalism.utexas.edu/faculty/dennis-darling”>Dennis in this workshop, which will focus on learning new ways of seeing and composing that will improve your photography regardless of what kind of photographic equipment you use. The use of post-production software such as Photoshop will also be demonstrated. It is suggested, but not required, that the digital camera you bring to the workshop have a manual mode in addition to the automatic and program modes found on the majority of digital cameras. Students are requested to bring a dozen of their favorite personal photographs to be viewed in class. Students at any level of photography are welcome to attend.
Basic Digital Photography with Ben Long, October 31-November 3, 2013. Learn the ins and outs of digital photography, from shooting to editing and printing, in this fun four-day workshop. No matter what your skill level, you’ll learn something new, as we cover all the specifics of your camera’s controls, as well as how to compose and expose a shot. After a lecture/presentation on shooting on Thursday afternoon, we’ll get up Friday morning for a shooting expedition in the area. The rest of the classes will center around post-production, including importing, organizing, and keywording your images using Adobe Bridge; tone and color corrections in Photoshop; dodging, burning, and other localized edits; and finally printing. Basic computer skills required. Students must bring their own digital camera, either digital SLR or point-and-shoot. Whether you’re an abject beginner, a dabbler, or a seasoned digital shooter, this class will help you get your photography to the next level.
