Imparting wisdom from more than 30 years of photography experience, Philip Meadows teaches the craft of capturing light and images to create authentic, original compositions. Four modular-workshop options, 2.5 hours each, offer extended study of four topics in professional-grade moment capturing without Santa sacks full of professional-grade equipment. The studio-photography workshop illuminates inexpensive ways to create studio-quality results, and low-light instruction teaches students how to take pictures at night without having to purchase pricey night-vision paints. The far-sighted can opt for peeks into the world of macro photography with the close-up workshop, and the raw-workflow session imparts the wisdom of digital negative mode and helps students understand the difference between a raw file and a nail file. Pixels to Prints is a 2.5-hour presentation and tutorial dedicated to teaching the best methods to organize photos stored on the hard drive. The workshop also explores basic editing techniques to create high-quality images to share online or print.
One of three instructors offers individual attention to up to 15 students in Roadmap to Your Camera classes, which spend 2.5 hours exploring the functions of cameras and their various roles in creating compelling photographs. Though point-and-shoot digital cameras are welcome, the workshop’s information best works for those with cameras with several functions, such as varying shutter speeds, ISO settings, and a chupacabra-proximity alarm.
