People have been asking us for a shorter workshop, one that they can attend over a weekend.
With our upcoming exhibition,
"The Yin & Yang of the Outer Banks," at Through This Lens, a photo gallery in Durham, NC, we have arranged with gallery owner Roylee Duvall to run a workshop there.
Durham, NC has many venues dedicated to the arts, from DPAC and Carolina Theater to Durham Arts Council, to the wonderful architecture that came out of the tobacco industry. There are also beautiful, year-round gardens, interesting statuary, and other photographic fodder.
There is much to photograph here.
As noted above, we will be based at Through This Lens in the heart of downtown Durham. As with our regular workshops, there will be both shooting and post-processing time with our signature critique sessions.
You will need not only your camera and lenses, but your laptop and imaging program of choice. For those who already work with Lightroom we will be able to demonstrate what you might do with your photos in post-processing. Those with other programs can watch and gain inspiration for what they might do, and we can offer verbal suggestions.
We start out with some technical information before heading out for our first shoot.
Our workshops include the following:
Opening wine-and-pizza reception;
Primer booklet to help you get started;
Morning and afternoon shoots;
Mid-day downloading of your images and suggestions for processing;
Lots of individual instruction in both the field and classroom;
Daily critique sessions;
Discussions on various aspects of photography, including digital workflow; and
Lots of fun and frivolity throughout!
If you have not already done so, be sure to check our FAQs for questions you may have as well as for equipment suggestions.
You will need your camera and lenses, as well as a laptop computer with your imaging program of choice installed on it.
For those who already use Photoshop Lightroom 4, we can actually demonstrate possible ways to bring the wow factor to your images.
