Mission Statement for Workshop

As the great black and white darkroom printer Fred Pickard once said, “A photograph is a very sensitive thing and everything affects everything!”

After completing the Picture Perfect Weekend Workshop, you know how to control your camera on full manual and understand how to read your histogram to get a proper exposure, you are now ready to learn how to get the most out of your image in post processing.

We will spend several hours showing you all our secrets in Adobe Photoshop and how we post process our own images. There are multiple ways to do the same move to an image in Adobe Photoshop and the program can be overwhelming and intimidating. We will show you a basic, straightforward, easy to follow digital workflow that you can take home and put to work on your own images.

Advanced Weekend WorkshopDuring the workshop, Todd and Brad will be using their laptop and projector to show you their process. The students won’t be using computers during this part of the workshop, just following along and asking questions.

Advanced Weekend WorkshopIn the Advanced Weekend Workshop, Todd and Brad will also review the 20/20 Vision material for building stronger compositions, and you will have more shooting time in the field than in the Picture Perfect Weekend Workshop.

This shooting time will give you the opportunity to put the knowledge you gained during that workshop, to good use.

There will be a review of images taken by the students during the workshop, and a demonstration of some of the Photoshop techniques learned on with a few of the workshop participant’s photos.

As with the Picture Perfect Weekend Workshops, all ages and abilities are welcomed. Any digital SLR camera is accepted, just bring your camera manual.
