Winter Workshops

Learning hands-on in a small group of like-minded photographers creates a synergy of learning and creativity that just can’t be equalled. Maximum group size is 10 to ensure individual assistance. Beginner or advanced, digital or film – these workshops are designed for your learning and improvement.

Nature & Outdoors in Winter

Guelph Workshop – Saturday, January 21, 2012 

Place: TBA – Rockwood CA or Starkey Hill (both near Guelph), depending on snow conditions. The Dundas workshop will be at Dundas Valley

Start Time: All Day! The morning field session will start at 7:30am,  approx. 15 minutes before sunrise.

Dundas Workshop – Saturday, January 28, 2012

Place: Dundas Valley CA

Start Time:  8:30am (when the HRCA gates open).

Both Workshops:

Lunch & Critique Session: After a 3 to 4 hour morning field session, we’ll break for lunch (brought or bought locally “on the way”) followed by an afternoon Critique Session to discuss images from the morning. We’ll wrap up around 3:30pm.

Bring: Typical outdoor photo gear including a tripod, if you have one, and dress warmly! A laptop or other viewing device would facilitate the Critique Session, although I will have my laptop and projector for this, too.

Cost: $95 per person, payable by cheque or PayPal. Maximum of 10 participants.

To help get you started, have look back at my newsletter from January 2011 for an article on Winter Photography (PDF).

Processing Images using Lightroom

Sat 11 Feb & Sat 18 Feb – 9am to 3:30pm

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom is the industry standard for creative photographers. Discover the wonders of Lightroom in this two-part, hands-on workshop:

Part I – Sat. 18 Feb: This is for beginners to Lightroom. In the morning, we will create your LR Catalogue, import images, set up import presets, keyword images and set up collections. In the afternoon, we will work on the rudiments of the Develop module learning the basics of processing in colour and black & white and exporting images to jpeg, Flickr.

Part II – Sat. 25 Feb: Now that you are comfortable with LR, we can get down to some advanced techniques: adjustment brushes, graduated masks, tone curves, lens corrections, split toning and sharpening. In the afternoon, we’ll continue with instruction on the Print Module when you will print a 13×19” fine art print.

Cost: Part I is $100; Part II is $125 Sign up for both parts for $200. Additional prints in Part 2 are $25. Maximum of 10 participants.

If you are just discovering LR, you can download a 30-day free trial from either now, or in time for the LR workshop in February.

    Very interested in your field workshops. January is a long ways away to commit this early as I travel for work a small amount. I’ll keep an eye on this

      Thanks for your interest. This year, with the many irons I have in various fires, I may not be able to offer a Winter Workshop. If I do, I will post it here first.
