If you're anything like me, taking your camera off the auto setting can be mildly terrifying. And don't even get me started on photoshop. Sometimes I want someone to just hold my hand through the process of shootings, editing and photoshopping so I can get in and get out and feel more comfortable (and have great images). And that's exactly what this new one day workshop is all about.
Photo Camp: Field Guide is a one day workshop designed to teach you the go-to tools that professionals use to make their photos look great. The workshop is being taught by Laure Joliet (whose name you might recognize from her days as an Apartment Therapy contributor!) who specializes in interior photography shooting for places like The New York Times and West Elm, and Morgan Satterfield of The Brick House, who specializes in beautiful interiors and photography and also getting the most bang for you buck. The workshop is basically a response to requests from friends and family to help them with simple tricks and tools to make their photos go from blah to awesome without having to learn every single tool in photoshop or buy tons of expensive gear.
Here's the skinny about the workshop:
New to Photoshop? No big deal. Don't own an SLR? Who cares! All experience levels and all digital cameras welcome. It's not about having fancy gear, it's about making better photos. We will walk you step-by-step through the process and go-to tricks of editing photos by using the photos you already have. No need to master every tool in Photoshop, we'll show you our top 5.
Have a ton of photo questions? Confused by cameras? Bring it on, we can help. Everyone leaves FIELD GUIDE with a set of their own publication ready photos, a workshop reference book, techniques for getting the most out of that camera you already own and the know how to make better photos from then on.
The class is going to be limited to 15, making it an intimate and ideal situation for asking questions and getting hands on help. So, if you are in LA on March 24th, I'll see you at CAMP!
