Description: 

Adobe Lightroom Classic CC (formally known as Lightroom CC (confusing isn't it?!)) is becoming more and more popular with photographers and is increasingly being seen as the main retouching program. Lightroom goes hand in hand with Photoshop and together sets the industry standard of image editing. 

The software allows you to sort, rename, edit, tag, as well as make exposure and other batch image adjustments, non-destructively. 

This course will take you from the setting up of this affordable piece of software, looking at importing your images, to editing and organising them. The Develop module is where you can correct and process RAW and JPEG files, as well as apply a range of effects, all covered in detail.

The course will also look at how images can be exported directly from Lightroom to websites, Facebook, used in album design or made into prints.

Building Your Own 4x5 View Camera with Drew Nikonowicz

Description: 

Join photographer Drew Nikonowicz for a two-day workshop intended for photographers interested in learning about large format photography, while building their own 4×5 View Camera – courtesy of Standard Cameras. This DIY approach will lead to a deeper understanding of image-making both inside and outside the camera. Regardless of your background, this workshop will leave you with all the knowledge and tools you need to successfully shoot with a large format camera. Drew founded Standard Cameras in 2018 as a platform to empower photographers everywhere to improve their skills through affordable equipment and valuable educational content.

Participants will begin by assembling their own Standard 4×5 as a group, while familiarizing themselves with their new 4×5. After assembly is complete, they will have an opportunity to practice making photographs with both a standard film back and Polaroid film back. Large format is a slow process, which forces the user to focus on each image in a radically different way. With Drew’s guidance, participants will receive advice on how to approach image-making with large format through hands-on practice, and later discussions on compositional and conceptual considerations while shooting. Participants will take home a hand-made Standard 4×5, several Polaroid photographs, and information on large format equipment.

Film, lenses, and additional equipment will be provided.

Drew Nikonowicz (born in St. Louis, Missouri, 1993) earned a BFA degree from the University of Missouri-Columbia in 2016. His work employs analog photographic processes as well as computer simulations to deal with exploration and experience in contemporary culture. He has exhibited both nationally and internationally. In 2015 he received the Aperture Portfolio Prize and the Lenscratch Student Prize. In 2017 Nikonowicz completed a one-year residency at Fabrica Research Centre. He now lives and works in the United States in Saint Louis, Missouri as an artist and owner of the company Standard Cameras. His first photobook, This World and Others Like It, was co-published by Yoffy Press and Fw:Books in 2019.

Film for this workshop has been generously provided by Kodak Professional.

Tuition for this two-day workshop is $700 and includes one Standard 4×5 Camera. Tuition also includes 4×5 sheet film and Polaroid film, and lunch and light refreshments for both days.
