Printing your photos will make you a better photographer. The first step to creating a great print is by understanding how to create a great photograph in the field.
Capture-To-Print is an intermediate workshop that focuses not only on photography, but also editing and printing! Half photo workshop, half editing and printing, we will take you through the whole process–from Capture to Print— to demonstrate what is important in the field, how to effectively process photos, and why printing is a necessity.
We will begin at Goldmine Brook Falls in Chester, Massachusetts for a morning of shooting waterfalls, streams, flowers and more. We will emphasize how to get the best results in the field for the best end result, including focus, exposure, and more. At 11am, we will break from shooting and make our way back to the classroom at our Holyoke location, about 30 minutes away. We will reconvene at 12pm. (Attendees are encouraged to get lunch in the meantime.)
We will then transition from photographing to editing, which will include discussion of certain techniques. 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. Shortly after noon, we will view these edits, critique, and discuss them with the rest of the class while also creating 13×19″ prints.
This will be a fun and challenging workshop that will walk you through the full process of creating a photograph. The process of printing is integral to developing one’s photographic vision.
