The Art of Photography – Old Becomes New, instructor Abbey Chamberlain, CPP
Don’t we all have thousands of photos taken over the years that we intend to work on to improve or possibly uncover a masterpiece? This 5-day module provides the time and personalized instruction that will help you achieve that goal.
You can use your own camp photos or work on improving old favorites. Evaluate your images for their artistic potential: correct and adjust the color, balance and intensity, but also composition. See how to use selective treatments to improve impact, narrative, and style. Grow your artistic vision by shooting three optional assignments and assessing them in a friendly, fun, and supportive class environment.
Abbey will teach “Photoshop 101” where beginners will learn the basics in a patient atmosphere, while intermediate users will learn how to take their art to the next level. Everyone will learn why “layers” are important and how to become proficient.
