One-Day Workshop: Navigating Photoshop

Joe Lavine

Adobe Photoshop, the professional digital imaging standard since 1990, is used by photographers, designers, and imaging artists who want to perfect their unique visions. Photoshop allows artists to create compelling images, composites and designs, but the platform’s vast capabilities seem daunting to some photographers. This workshop is designed to teach the core foundation of Photoshop, focusing on step-by-step instruction through essential tools and options while learning non-destructive editing practices that maintain image integrity.

One-Day Workshop: Lighting Techniques

Joe Lavine

Tuition $350
Code P0918-23

The camera sees one thing: light. To many, lighting seems overwhelming when considered against the vast array of tools and techniques, not to mention the “expert” opinions. In reality, lighting is a relatively straightforward concept. The key is to build from a foundation, experiment, play, and ultimately unleash a clear vision. We designed this workshop to remove the intimidation that often comes with working with lighting. Cameras today are impressive technological devices that focus, deliver accurate exposures, and even adjust color.

Digital Workflow: Capture, Print and Everything In-Between

Joe Lavine

Tuition $1,100
Code P1221-23

Every photographer has been there: the image looks great on the computer screen, but the print doesn’t match our expectations. The act of printing begins long before the ink is put on the paper; it starts with the initial capture and requires purposeful processing, quality materials, and proper settings. In this workshop, participants gain an understanding of print settings, various papers, and color correction among other important decisions to make before hitting "print". Through demonstrations, lectures, field trips, and group feedback students complete their time here with the knowledge to organize their images and print confidently.
