That title is exhausting! And so it can also feel making a book, a zine, a calendar, or even a print! There’s so much to the printing process that is foreign and never covered in standard courses, and so in this course, we will begin to cover some of the basics.
In this three session course, we’ll discuss the following topics:
-Organization—how to use your software (ANY software) to work for you to prepare your vision
-Culling your images— reducing the quantity of images you use to strengthen your end result
-Pre-visualization— Begin to develop your storytelling journey by letting the images guide you!
-Exporting & Importing—How do we bring the images out of the program we’re using and at what settings?
-Online options and standalone programs for building books, calendars, and more.
-Layouts—What are some of the basic design elements that we can employee? What can be automated and what do we have to do from scratch?
-Storytelling—This is the glue that holds the book together! (Figuratively, not literally.) How do we keep interest for 20 pages? 50 pages? 100 pages?
Much of the conversation in this course will be demonstrated using Adobe Lightroom Classic, but other programs (Capture One, OnOne, Apple Photos) can also be discussed and just as applicable.
In our final session, we will review work from attendees. You don’t need to be done with your book. (You might not even need to be MAKING a book!) However, the review process is an excellent way to get feedback on your book, and also see what others are doing!
Please note: We will NOT be printing books in this class.
Registering and what is needed
After you register for this class, you will receive a confirmation email that will include information about how to access the online class, including an online ID code that you will need to get into the class. Make sure to save this information. We will also send a reminder email about 24 hours prior to the class time with that same information.
Layout of the class
The class will begin promptly at the time listed. If for some reason you cannot attend one of the sessions, don’t worry! They will be recorded and you will be able to watch them at your leisure! During each class, you are welcome to type in questions in the Question box if you have specific questions as they are asked. We will do our best to answer those questions, but if not, feel free to ask them at the end.
“You Are Being Recorded” (And Other Note Related Items)
We will be recording this class! The video will be available for download about 24-hours after the class for all attendees, so don’t worry about taking unending notes. We will send this link attendees to download and rewatch at any time. In addition to this, we will generally send out a PDF of the presentation (when applicable) and handouts on the topic. If handouts and PDFs are included, we will send it out with the link for the video.
No online classes should be shared and cannot be shared in a public environment, including with camera clubs
