Basics of Digital Photography

Today’s digital cameras offer endless creative opportunities—but only if you know how to use them. Whether you recently acquired your first digital SLR camera or mirrorless camera, or have owned one for a few years, this workshop empowers you to take control of its features and advance your skills.

Designed like a hands-on user manual, this workshop provides you with the knowledge essential to explore all the capabilities of your digital camera. Jennifer patiently guides participants through the variables of aperture, shutter speed, and the various settings and shooting modes. We learn how to incorporate these tools with different lenses, and explore techniques of composition and lighting in order to create more interesting and powerful images. Mornings are devoted to lectures, discussions, and critiques of the previous day’s work, while afternoons are spent practicing newly acquired skills in the picturesque environs of Santa Fe.

This promises to be an exciting five days of mastering the basics of digital photography and cultivating our creativity in an energetic and supportive atmosphere. By the workshop’s end, participants have acquired a solid understanding of manual mode on their camera, and return home with a collection of images that reflect their new expertise.

Adobe Lightroom Intensive: Organizing and Enhancing Your Images

Adobe Lightroom is the ultimate solution for the organization and enhancement of our digital imagery and an incredibly powerful tool for photographers of all levels. In this two day intensive you learn the ins-and-outs of proper Lightroom workflow and the tools that best fit your needs. The goal is strengthening and streamlining your photographic output—simplicity is key!

Luke begins by explaining how Lightroom handles files, then takes us through importing and organizing image files from our cameras and hard drives. Lightroom’s powerful organizational tools make it possible to sort through thousands of images with ease, and a principal goal of this workshop is to teach you how to navigate this essential element of the program. Using Lightroom’s system of Collections, Keywords, Flags, Stars, and Color Labels, you gain a solid understanding of how to simply manage photographs stored on your home computers and hard drives.

From organization, we move onto Lightroom’s powerful developing tools. Using the Develop module, we make adjustments ranging from correcting exposure to creative vignetting, in order to enhance the quality of our images. Luke also demonstrates how to synchronize your Develop settings across groups of images in order to streamline your workflow. We wrap up by learning how to export images for print or web viewing.

After a quick review of the skills that were covered, you’re equipped to get the most out of your digital images using Adobe Lightroom at home.
