Here is a unique, two-part workshop where you will learn and practice all aspects of photographic image capture, and then, in a follow-on session, learn to use Lightroom to turn your images to works of art. These sessions will be jam-packed with training and experience for every photographer at all skill levels. ALL your questions will be answered, and you will be able to go forward to photograph with confidence.
In the first part of the workshop on Saturday January 12th, professional photographers Fred Silber and Steve Rosenbach will be your instructors, guiding you to help you home in on interesting subjects and walk you through all aspects of image capture, including shooting in RAW, exposure, custom white balance, composition, HDR, and other techniques. By the end of this session, you will have some really good images in your camera.
For the second part of the workshop on Wednesday January 16th, from 6 to 9pm, you will bring the raw images from the first session, and we will walk you through how to use Lightroom to turn your very good images into extraordinary ones.
For the first part of this workshop on Saturday December 15th, we will be shooting at Housewerks Salvage in the Pigtown section of Baltimore. This business has an enormous and eccentric collection of items of all kinds of salvaged architectural and industrial items - their collection of both common and unusual objects, from the mundane to the magnificent, make great photo subjects!
The company's building itself, built in 1885 as the headquarters of The Chesapeake Gas Company of Baltimore City, is visually intriguing by itself, and a subject for great photos. We will be able to photograph pretty much anywhere in the building, and if weather permits, we will go into their yard to photograph the substantial number of items there (see Fred Silber's photo above, taken in the yard.)
In the second part of the workshop on Wednesday evening December 19th, we will use your own RAW images, captured at Housewerks, to teach you to be a competent and creative Lightroom user. We will work in a comfortable location near BWI airport (attendees will get the address and directions after registering.)
