Wednz Scene: Digital Photography…

January 17 / 18

It’s time for workshops. I find all kinds of workshops in the world of creativity. Have you heard about Santa Fe Photogenic Workshop? I’ve posted a few workshops from Santa Fe before. Found two upcoming workshops you might be interested in…

What is Santa Fe Photogenic Workshop about?

We share our passion for photography, offering world-renowned instructors, cutting-edge technology, and dedicated staff.

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.

Shadow Spotlight: The Untitled Space

Shadow Spotlight: The Untitled Space

January 16 / 18

Hello everyone! Hope everybody enjoyed their three-day weekend in the U.S. This week will be plenty busy, plenty busy. When I do a Shadow Spotlight post, it takes time and research to put together a great piece. It can be a person, group, or a place. So this month’s spotlight focuses on a place. There are many go places to go for great art. The Untitled Space in New York City is one. If this place seems familiar, I’ve posted last week about an exhibition that is taking place this week. What is Untitled Space? I’ll let them tell you…

 

Photo was taken by Dustin Wayne Harris.

The Untitled Space art gallery, located in Tribeca, New York, was founded by artist Indira Cesarine in 2014. The gallery specializes in emerging and established contemporary artists exploring conceptual framework and boundary-pushing ideology through mediums of painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, video and performance art. The Untitled Space is committing to exploring new ideas vis-à-vis traditional and new mediums and highlights a program of “Women in Art,” as well as special events aligned with our creative vision.

Recent exhibitions include “SHE INSPIRES” a group show honoring inspirational women curated by Indira Cesarine, “UPRISE/ ANGRY WOMEN” a group show of 80 female artists benefitting the ERA Coalition, “LIFEFORCE” a group show of 23 female artists curated by Kelsey and Remy Bennett, and “In The Raw: The Female Gaze On The Nude”. Special events include “Project Literacy” and “SciConvo” a TEDX talk on Science and Culture.

Here are two videos from two exhibitions from last year.

 

Exhibition Title: SHE INSPIRES / Exhibition Dates: MAY 2 – 20, 2017

 

Exhibition Title: SECRET GARDEN // The Female Gaze on Erotica / Exhibition Dates: June 27– July 30, 2017

The Untitled Space is part of the TRIBECA ART DISTRICT.

I love it when you go to a gallery that can explore all aspects of life, especially with what’s going on now. Speaking of that the next exhibition will be held today, ONE YEAR OF RESISTANCE, January 16, which is open reception. Preview, by invitation 4pm till 6pm. The exhibit dates are January 17 – February 4, 2018. 

For more information on future exhibitions and how to get your artwork displayed, please go to untitled-space.com for details.
