 FOTOshoot 219

The Everglades: Capturing Our Natural World with Robin Loznak

Document the landscape of Florida's unique flora and fauna on a journey through the Grassy Waters Everglades Preserve, a 20 square mile wetland habitat, with Nature photographer extraordinary Robin Loznak. Robin loves all things big and small but especially the macro, he will show you how to isolate and enlarge elements to tell a story. The special unique terrain and mixture of creatures, with its beautiful prairies, marshes, and canals, offer numerous opportunities to create powerful and intimate landscape and nature images. As a bonus, there is potential to observe and photograph many wildlife species on their own. Such as bald eagles, herons and snail kites, as well as turtles and alligators. Push your creativity to a new level as you focus on alternative framing and compositions; assess lighting, color and contrast conditions, and creative camera control.

Size Matters! with Stan Sholik

Stan will share the techniques he used in his best-selling book: Macro & Close-Up Photography Handbook. Stan will show how macro and close-up photography allow photographers to explore a world that few people ever experience: the delicate stamens of flowers, crystals, the texture of a butterfly’s wing, stamps, or minute details on a piece of jewelry. With careful attention to the techniques taught in this class, you will learn how to capture these highly detailed, small-scale subjects, creating fascinating images of features too small to be adequately observed by the unaided human eye. With Stan's advice on selecting the latest 35mm equipment, and field versus studio considerations like focusing, lighting, film, and filters, consistent results will come easily to both the novice and professional photographer.  Come away with some great close-up pictures, and have fun too.

Using the Local Adjustment Tools to Make Extraordinary Images with Lewis Kemper

Learn how to use the Graduated Filter, Adjustment Brush, and the Radial Filter to set your images apart from the crowd. Ansel Adams used to say, “The negative is the score and the print is the performance.” In today’s digital world, the raw file is the score and your post processing is the performance.  Learn how to use the tools found in both Adobe Camera Raw and Lightroom to turn your score into a performance that will dazzle your audiences! Learn how to use these tools to accentuate the stars in your pictures and to control the lighting of your images.  Lewis will demonstrate his technique for “flipping the light” to make your subject the strongest visual element in your pictures.

 Community Event 613

The New Americans and Glasshouse Installation with Jill Enfield

“The New Americans” is a physical display of heritage, genealogy, and homeland. I was brought up by immigrants and wanted to create a project that honored immigrants’ integral role in our society while simultaneously representing the hardships they still experience to this day.

The process used with this project references the same technique used to record immigrants who traveled in the 1800’s. By fusing the elements of old and new, I created portraits that reflect both historic technique and the reality of contemporary existence, which unfortunately parallels that of some of the first immigrants. My goal was to communicate concepts of heritage and immigrant hardship into tangible form by utilizing the original process in which immigrants were photographically documented.

 Master Workshop 421

Portraiture with J Tomas Lopez

Lecture, FOTOshoot, Review in Computer Lab

Additional Fee: $30.00

Ansel Adams famously compared the photographic process to music, with the negative being the score and the print the interpretation or playing of that score. With that said, it makes sense that to adhere to the obstinate philosophy that cropping, restaging, burning, dodging, blurring is heresy or somehow not kosher is absurd. Picasso said that “An artist makes the lie believable.” In this class, we will take the portrait through a rigorous evolution. Beginning with the shoot, which will take into consideration manipulations that are possible in post production to editing the image and finally to the fine art print. This workshop will give participants an excellent re-learning of fine art portraiture.

Going Local, The Ever Improving Local Development Tools in Lightroom Classic 2019 with John Reuter

As Lightroom has evolved over the years, local adjustments have become a larger and more important part of the photographer’s Develop Module workflow. From Spot Removal to the Graduated and Radial Filters to the very powerful Adjustment Brush many photographers no longer need to move into Photoshop to process and prepare their images for printing.  

New technologies have been added to the graduated and radial filters, allowing more precise masking of your selection than the simple broad selections previously.  The Adjustment Brush remains the most powerful local selection tool with the entire range of the Basic Develop Module available with the great precision of painting and masking of your effects.  Going local allows you to make the most of Lightroom as your image editor of choice and expanding the creative potential of your digital photography.

Niagara Falls: Photo Icon of the Americas with Dr. Anthony Bannon

Niagara Falls is probably the most photographed site in history.   It was Canada’ first photograph, made in 1841 by the British explorer H.L. Pattinson.  The image of Niagara became synonymous for the majesty and dangers of the New World. Yet soon enough, the Falls were made crude - only to be rescued in one of the few victories culture can claim over industry. Niagara stood for environmental rescue - and for freedom. The NAACP had its roots at Niagara. And through the centuries, The Falls have been characterized through every photo-media and movement – from Daguerreians to highly collected contemporary artists.  Dr. Bannon will expose the Falls’ glories and follies.
