Saturday March 30th, 9am-5pm • Hunt’s Photo, Melrose
Recommended prerequisite: Basic knowledge of your camera; basic knowledge of editing; interest in black & white
All Skill Levels Welcome
Instructors: Don Toothaker, Emily Hojnowski & Paul Nelson
Group Size: Limited to 12 attendees
Join Hunt’s Photo Education as we workshop how to “see”, effectively compose and create macro images, and finally edit in black & white.
Capture & Edit is an intermediate workshop that focuses not only on photography, but also on the process of editing, this time specifically in black & white. We will begin by presenting some of things that we look for in the process of developing a black & white composition, including such varied aspects from camera settings to choice of subject. We will spend a good deal of time creating and photographing compositions, then move into the process of editing them in the classroom.
Attendees are encouraged to bring their computers–laptops or all-in-ones are fine (iMacs are welcome)–in order to do their own editing. Attendees should have Adobe Lightroom and/or Photoshop on their computer or a comparable program. We will be available to help with the processing of images during this time, but we will also give live editing demonstrations. We will then view these edits, critique, and discuss them with the rest of the class.
This will be a fun and challenging workshop that will walk you through a very unique, but storied process: Black & White.
Approximate schedule for the day:
9am- Introductions, discussion black & white composition, settings, etc
1pm- Short lunch break; quick cleanup of macro setups (Attendees are encouraged to bring a bagged lunch and take a short break during this time) At this time, we will have a short discussion about the editing process in black & white
4pm- Review & critique
5pm- End of day
If you are attending this workshop, we will send out more specific instructions to you a few days prior to the workshop. Please note: Some slight details above can be subject to change. This email will detail any of those minor changes.
If you have specific items that you would like to bring to photograph, you are welcome to bring them as well.
