830 – 9 Welcome and opening presentation

9 – 10 Compelling Composition

_DSC1779 - Version 2

Line, shape, form, and flow are only a few of the components which work together to create compelling composition. In this presentation, many compositional techniques are illustrated and discussed, the point being to help you to think in terms of distilling the subject down to it’s essence.

10 – 11 Flower Photography


Spring is right around the corner. Flowers are a favorite subject with photographers, and visual artists in general. Soft lines, curves, color, and translucency lend flowers to infinite interpretations. Along with many image illustrations, equipment, lenses, and set ups are illustrated.

11 – 12 Panoramic Photography

 Stitched Panorama   

The world of panoramic photography is at your finger tips. First off, it is possible to create great panos hand held, with no tripod. Photoshop’s photomerge can create the composite and you’re good to go. However, for more advanced panoramic photography, hardware is needed and will be addressed, as well as nodal points, amount of overlap needed @ different focal lengths, metering, and multi-layered stitched pans. It is a panoramic world out there

12 – 1 Lunch Break

Images from attendees will be taken from the original, unoptimized state to a finished version using various software (plugins and photoshop) and processing workflow techniques (Lightroom or Aperture not needed). Each image will be discussed in terms of it’s issues and what is needed to enhance them.

230 – 330 Adding emotion with Texture Blends


Texture blending will be illustrated, taking images shot with texture blends in mind and discussing the texture selection process, then illustrating the texturing process.

330 – 4  Special In-camera creative effects


Although, software is one of the great driving forces in modern digital photography, there are manly creative effects that can be accomplished in-camera, depending on the camera’s capabilities. Techniques such as multiple exposures, swipes, directional movement, and extreme long exposures will be illustrated.
