Photo: ACP on the Canal- $135
Come and discover the power of your camera and learn the elements of good artistic composition during a photo shoot at the D&R Canal in Kingston on Day 1 of this weekend workshop. Day 2 will be spent in ACP’s Digital Studio gaining a better understanding of how to work with software, moving from the newly formed images on the monitor to the realization of the finished print in hand.
DAY ONE Saturday, 10/15 1:30-5pm at the D&R Canal in Kingston
Join Bill Blanchard for a hands-on photography session at the D&R Canal in Kingston. This particular area is one of the more heavily visited spots along the canal’s 70 mile stretch because of its natural beauty, interesting man-made features, and variety of botanical material. Participants will walk at a leisurely pace allowing time to capture images, talk about photography and answer individual questions. Instruction will be given in the basic elements of good photographic composition, including leading lines, pattern, symmetry, rule of thirds, texture, and framing. Along the way students will be guided through shooting manually using Camera Raw, ISO’s, Shutter Speeds, f-Stops, and Depth of Field, among other topics. The intent of the workshop is for participants to have fun, while becoming more comfortable with the operation of their cameras and their abilities to express themselves through it. Please dress appropriately for the weather and comfortable walking shoes are recommended. Rain or shine!
DAY TWO Sunday, 10/16 2:30-6pm at the Arts Council of Princeton
The intent of day two is to give the student a methodology for working effectively with the software side of digital photography, moving from the newly formed images on the monitor to the realization of the finished print in hand. While working in ACP’s Digital Imaging Lab, Bill will guide students through the basics of digital image “Work Flow”, starting with Adobe Bridge to organizing images, entering Meta Data, Key Words, copyright information, as well as renaming of image files. Image correcting will occur in Photoshop and in Photoshop’s “Camera Raw” section, covering, Color Space settings, Color Management, working with Layers, including adjustment layers and layer masks, and the basics of good “Non-Destructive Image Construction”.
