The aim of this beginner level workshop is to improve all aspects of your digital photography image making. It is ideal for anyone who has a digital SLR but feel that they are not getting the most out of it. The five day workshop will guide photographers towards making beautiful photographic prints. Over the course of the 5 days participants will learn about optimising their camera for producing the best quality image and get a chance to make new work on field trips around the Burren. Participants will then get the opportunity to enhance their image with post-production using Adobe Bridge , Lightroom and Photoshop and finally you will get to produce beautiful photographic prints. Use of the College’s large format Epson 7900 printing technology will be available to participants for printing their images with a wide range of photographic paper choices to work with, from Glossy Photo Paper to Enhanced Matt or Premium Lustre paper. However, this workshop will have less of an emphasis on printing, but more on the basic skills required to start working in Photoshop.
This course is followed by another five-day workshop dedicated to a more advanced audience. Both courses are designed to run in conjunction with each other, so participants are welcome to do both or alternatively selecting one they would feel more comfortable in.
Places on both courses are limited, so if you are unsure about which course is for you, why not e-mail Robert Ellis directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
