Photography & New Media

Photography has always been a vital part of Anderson Ranch, one in which students explore visual storytelling through a variety of contexts and concepts. The program has uniquely evolved to focus on both traditional photography and new media— making it one of the only workshop settings of its kind. Three floors of the Fischer Photography Center house state-of-the-art equipment, including three photography studios, two Mac labs, a traditional darkroom, and a lighting studio with strobe and continuous lighting for photography and video.

All Photography workshops are rooted in the same idea—powerful art requires rigorous inquiry of techniques and ideas. We focus on technical skills, content and critical dialog. Students have access to color-managed media labs equipped with 21-inch iMacs, flatbed and film scanners, Epson printers, and cutting-edge software including Adobe Creative Cloud. When appropriate, students utilize strobe and tungsten lighting equipment, seamless backdrops, green screen, audio and video recording equipment and Epson large-format printers. We also offer community engagement through events like our Locals’ Clubs “Photography Salon” where artists engage with the Ranch outside of the workshop setting.

The Ranch Photography and New Media team creates an inspiring environment, allowing artists of all levels to explore lens-based media and the journey of artistic discovery in the unparalleled setting of the Colorado Rockies.

Use Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom Classic Together

Jan Kabili

Tuition $450 ‑ $650
Code P05W04-21

Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom Classic are a powerful team you can use together to enhance your photos and create anything you can imagine. In this two-day weekend workshop you’ll learn how and when to take photos back and forth between Lightroom Classic and Photoshop so you can make your photos look their best, use them creatively, and keep them organized. We’ll focus on practical scenarios in which it makes most sense to use Photoshop and Lightroom together, including compositing, retouching, replacing backgrounds, and adding creative effects. Along the way, you’ll practice popular techniques and level up your skills in both programs. This class is for you if you already have some experience with both Photoshop and Lightroom Classic. You don’t have to be an expert, but knowing your way around layers and selections in Photoshop, as well as importing and basic editing in Lightroom Classic will help you get the most out of this workshop. This workshop meets via Zoom Video Conferencing software (download free from Zoom.com). An Anderson Ranch staff member co-teaches the class and coordinates the online platform. Further details will be emailed to registrants.
