The professional shutterbug at Dumbo Photo Workshops nudges image apprehenders on picture-perfecting journeys via photography and postproduction classes. The 90-minute introduction-to-digital-photography workshop unearths each student's digital-camera settings and entourage of ghosts. During the class, small groups of up to eight students will explore camera master settings and snap in-studio shots to practice newly learned techniques. Alternatively, the 90-minute digital-postproduction workshop focuses on the aftereffects of portraits, candid shots, and artwork painted by elephants. The curriculum centers on retouching and workflow techniques, output for web and print, and using popular software such as Adobe Photoshop CS5, Adobe Bridge, and Lightroom 3. For dual dabbling, the combination class melds the two workshops, creating a thorough, two-hour delve into each end of photography. Classes are scheduled several times throughout the month.
