$47 for Three-Hour Intro to Photography, Photo Safari, and Photo-Editing Workshop ($95 Value)
The workshop begins with a one-hour overview on operating the camera followed by a one-hour photo safari in Franklin Park Conservatory. Students follow along with a power point presentation, which they can download and keep after class. After the 60 minutes of hands-on shooting, students return for a one-hour photo-editing workshop, where they learn to enhance images using Adobe Photoshop or Corel’s PaintShop Pro. Students must bring their own laptops with either Adobe Photoshop CS5 or Corel PaintShop Pro X5 downloaded. If students do not already have either program, instructors recommend downloading a 30-day free trial available online. Workshops are held on Saturdays between 9 a.m. to noon or 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Admission to the Franklin Park Conservatory is included.
