Open Studio in Mobile Digital Art: iPhone and iPad w/ Rita Colantonio and Barbara Braman

Day: Mondays – 6 classes. Class begins Monday, January 6th, 2020
Time:
 1pm – 3pm

Cost: Members $120 | Non-Members $140

Description:

Join Rita Colantonio and Barbara Braman for an Open Studio. Artists at all experience levels, from beginners to the more advanced, will benefit from this ongoing class. The format of an open studio allows participants to bring in and work on their own projects, while benefiting from the different skill sets of the two instructors.  Demos by the instructors on workflow, different uses of apps, basic art principles and other topics will ensure that each student can continue to develop in this new art form.

Mobile Digital Art is a new media which developed directly from the introduction of the iPhone with its touch screen and the Apple APP store.  Artists as well-known as David Hockney have used this media to create paintings, collages, and images based on photographs developed in unlimited ways, fueled only by the artists imagination. Artists with backgrounds in photography as well as painters, printmakers and other “traditional media” artists would enjoy the convenience of a media that is so easily transportable and so open ended.

Barbara and Rita have each been recognized nationally for their work in this media and have taught workshops here at the art center in specific techniques.

AAdvanced Lightroom – Develop Module: Learn My Processing Secrets! w/ Betty Wiley

In this class, I’ll take students beyond the basic editing techniques in Lightroom. Lightroom can do much more than simply adjust exposure, fix blown highlights, open up shadows, change white balance and add contrast!  This class will cover techniques to add advanced and creative effects to images without ever having to use Photoshop or other editing software.

The following topics will be covered (time permitting)

  • Creating dramatic lighting affects for portraits

  • Adding beams of light

  • Using the tools in Lightroom to add creative, dramatic looks

  • Painting with color

  • Use of gradients and the radial filter to add color and other effects

  • Replacing color

  • Minimizing backgrounds

  • Creative effects with white balance

  • Using the range masking feature

  • Creating a pseudo-HDR effect

  • Adding color to bland, boring skies

  • Using the clone tool and healing tool for best results

  • Adding text and mat effects in the print module for a fine-art look

Class Prerequisites: This is an advanced Lightroom class and therefore students must have a working knowledge of using Lightroom, including how to import images and navigate the program. This class will be taught using Lightroom Classic and students must have a recent version of this software installed and working properly on their computers as there will not be time during class to do any trouble-shooting as there is a lot of material to cover.

Understanding Layers and Masks: Learn My Processing Secrets! w/ Betty Wiley

Cost: Members $65 | Non – Members $75

Description:

Proficiency with layers and masks is such an important part of using Photoshop and I always feel that it is the “heart and soul” of what makes Photoshop such a powerful imaging editor. During this class, you will learn how and when to use layers and masks in Photoshop and some the editing tips and tricks that I use when I process my images in Photoshop.  This is one of my most popular classes and one of my favorites because you are going to be amazed at how powerful layers can be and (hopefully!) how simple they are to use once you understand “the basics”.

 

During class I will cover:

  • Use of layers and masks including how and when to use them

  • Editing non-destructively, using layers

  • Use of adjustment layers and other types of layers, including fill layers

  • How to work with masks

  • Other editing “secrets” 🙂

  • Use of blend modes with layers

 

I will be teaching this class using Photoshop CC 2019. This workshop will be an intensive, hands-on class and I will supply practice files for everyone to work with on a thumb drive.  I will provide by a step-by-step demonstration and we will work on files together.  I will also provide complete instructions on everything that is covered to all participants after class so there will be no need to take notes.

Class Prerequisites: This is not an “Intro to Photoshop class” and therefore this class assumes students are familiar with Photoshop, including how to open and access files, how to navigate the program, etc.  Students should have a recent version of Photoshop already installed and working properly as there won’t be time during class to load software or to do any trouble-shooting with software that isn’t working properly. Basic computer skills are required.

Cost: Members $65 | Non-Members $75

Description:

This class will focus on taking images from Lightroom into Photoshop (and back) – otherwise known as making the “roundtrip” from Lightroom.  It’s incredibly easy to take images from Lightroom to Photoshop and I will show you how.  I’ll cover the basic editing I do in Lightroom and review the why and when I need or want to take my images into Photoshop for additional processing.  Once the images are back in Lightroom, I’ll also cover some organizational strategies for quickly finding the images in Lightroom.

 

The following topics will be covered:

  • Setting up your Lightroom preferences for editing in Photoshop

  • Why and when to take images into Photoshop for further editing

  • Saving changes back to Lightroom

  • Options for opening/editing images in Photoshop

  • Organizational tips and tricks which will help you find images once they are back in Lightroom

  • Exporting the files from Lightroom

DAGUERREOTYPE MASTERWORKS FROM THE DAWN OF PHOTOGRAPHY

September 6 – October 30
Opening Reception: September 13 | 4:30 – 6:00pm

This exhibition is a comprehensive survey celebrating the art of the daguerreotype- the first successful method of photography. Through the Looking Glass features important examples from America, France, England, and the Middle East. The nearly 150 plates include both cased examples and larger framed plates. All the major collecting genres of daguerreotypes -landscapes, architectural studies, occupationals, erotic stereoviews, post-mortems, and of course portraiture- are represented by superb, often surprising examples.

The daguerreotype was the first successful method of photography. It is a unique positive image that lives in a highly polished silver-coated copper plate. Its invention was announced to an electrified audience in Paris on August 19, 1839, at a joint meeting of the Académie des Sciences and the Académie des Beaux- Arts. A joint forum was the appropriate venue, as Louis Daguerre’s invention would prove equally revolutionary in science and technology, in social history, and in the arts.

Also at the meeting was the “American Leonardo” Samuel Morse, the painter, who was being honored for his invention of the telegraph. While in Paris, Morse learned daguerreotypy from Daguerre himself; back in New York, Morse then taught the art to interested colleagues in both the arts and sciences who would go on to open portrait studios of their own. While “daguerreotypomania” swept both France and America, it was in America that it had its greatest social (and commercial) impact, as portraiture of the common man captured the essence of Jacksonian democracy. The daguerreotype was the dominant mode of photography in France in the 1840s, but in America the daguerreian era would last through the 1850s. By the time of the Civil War it had been supplanted by the ambrotype, the tintype, and especially the albumen print from a collodion-on-glass negative, which would prevail till the turn of the century.

The show is organized by art2art Circulating Exhibitions, LLC All works are from the collection of Michael Mattis and Judith Hochberg.

Creative Digital Photography-Intermediate Level

Making compelling photographs requires the successful combination of two skills: the ability to see a photographic opportunity and the understanding of how to use various photographic tools to capture what was seen in the mind’s eye. This course will deal with both the creative process and the technical skill necessary to make successful photographic images. Students will learn how to use exposure, focus and composition for creative control and to create photographic impact.

This is an intermediate level photography course and students should own and know how to operate an adjustable digital camera (no cell phone cameras please). Students will be asked to participate in three photographic assignments, each of which will be presented and critiqued in class. Student participation in all assignments and classroom discussions will be an essential and important component of the learning experience of this course.

Becoming More Skilled in Digital Photography Workshop w/ John Klingel

Becoming More Skilled in Digital Photography Workshop w/ John Klingel

Location: Offsite in Eastham (Location will be emailed by instructor)

If you have a digital camera and you’re interested in improving your photographic skills and knowledge, this workshop offers an overview of various areas you need to learn more about. If you want to do more than point-and-shoot with a digital camera, you need to learn about various aspects of digital cameras and the techniques used to take a good photo. The primary objective of this seminar is to show you all the various aspects of digital photography that you will eventually need to learn to master if you’re interested in improving your skills. This seminar is for people who don’t use manual settings, don’t shoot in RAW, don’t understand depth of field, don’t understand basic composition and don’t use software to post process their photos. And it’s also a good introduction to digital for people who have always used film.

We’ll start with the camera and talk about some of the important features of digital cameras that many people don’t use but should. Topics will include: An explanation of why cameras don’t see what the eye sees. Why shooting in RAW is important. Why you need to use manual settings to achieve proper exposure and understanding depth of field. What white balance and ISO settings to use and why the quality of light is more important than the quantity of light. You’ll also learn how to read a histogram and why it plays so important a part in producing good photographs.

I’ll also discuss some of the basic aspects of composition along with what’s involved with shooting back-lit objects, motion, bright objects, macros, and other difficult shooting situations. Most shots, even by professionals, can be improved significantly with post-processing. We’ll go through many of the adjustments you can make in post-processing. The focus here will be on giving you an understanding of what you can easily do in post-processing and how to develop skills in this area. And we’ll review various software packages that are available for post-processing .

Creative Post Processing w/ John Klingel

Creative Post Processing w/ John Klingel

Location: Off-site held in Eastham. Instructor will email you the address

Digital photography gives us an opportunity to take relatively normal photos and turn them in to masterpieces. In this workshop, we’ll go beyond normal post processing and look at creative post processing.

We’ll start by looking at post processing in general. We’ll first discuss corrections that might be needed to improve composition. The next goal will be to help you understand how to look at a photo to determine what needs to be done. One of the basic objectives is to determine where you want the viewer’s eye to go. So we’ll discuss how to direct the viewer’s eye. And as often there are distracting elements pulling the viewer’s eye where you don’t want it, we’ll discuss ways of removing elements or reducing their intensity.

Then we’ll review a number of tools that you can use in creative post processing and demo how these tools can be used to maximize a photograph’s potential. These tools will include Photoshop, Lightroom as well as, a number of plug-ins and pre-sets, including NIK, DxO Optics Pro, Topaz, On-One and others. You’ll be amazed at how much punch and “wow factor” you can add to your photographs. While most of the discussion will center on post processing color, the workshop will also cover B&W conversion and combining B&W with selective color.

This session is designed to stimulate your creativity and help you create photos that have that “wow” factor.

A quiet time to create . . .

In the quiet of Sandy Neck Beach Park, the rustic cottage at the halfway point stands in the middle of the dunes, marsh and water.  It provides solitude, scenic landscapes and an endless source of beauty and inspiration. The Town of Barnstable, in partnership with the Cape Cod Art Association, offers day excursions to this unspoiled landscape. It is a special place to create and immerse yourself in the great outdoors. From time to time a Sandy Neck Beach Park naturalist will travel out with the group and share their firsthand knowledge and expertise of this “living museum”.

Who is this for?   This artist experience is for the plein air painter, photographer, musician, writer or anyone who craves some time away to create without the usual everyday interruptions.  The cottage is very rustic.  While out you will be exposed to the elements, and need to dress appropriately.

When can I go?   Trips are often scheduled for September and October as the colors in the marsh are heightened by the sun, as well as early and late spring.  You will be transported by a Beach Ranger for the 3.5 mile drive through the dunes.   The excursions are six hours long, either 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. or a later departure with an after sunset return.  For full details and FAQ’s, visit:  www.CapeCodArtCenter.org or www.HyArtsDistrict.com.

How do I sign up?   The cost of a day trip is $70.  If you are not a Cape Cod Art Center member, there is an additional excursion fee of $25 per trip.   Participants have asked if they can give more and others have donated a portion of the proceeds they made from the sale of one of their art pieces created while out at the Halfway House.  All donations are welcome.  Donations and program fees directly support this program.  Complete the application form and mail or email your form to the indicated address.

 

Applications will be considered as they are received.  Excursion dates will be filled on a first-come first-served basis. A maximum of ten people can be transported out to the cabin for a day. Trips may be postponed or cancelled due to low enrollment or inclement weather.  If this is the case, participants will receive a full refund. Cancellations by a participant up to two weeks prior to date, will receive a refund less $25 processing fee. Cancellations by participant within two weeks of excursion will only receive a refund if spot is filled.  A processing fee of $25 will be charged.

Cape Cod: Light on the Landscape with Mark Bowie
Oct

to Oct 21

Cape Cod: Light on the Landscape with Mark Bowie

Cape Cod: Light on the Landscape
with Mark Bowie

October 2018: Thursday, Oct 18-Sunday, Oct 21- starting at 6:30PM Thursday

Cost: Members $330  Non-Members $400

Program Description

It all starts with the light… and the Cape has a special quality of light.  Here it interacts with the convergence of land and sea, the salty atmosphere, a variety of coastal environments and distinctive subject matter, all of which make this place unique.  In this brand new workshop, we’ll explore Cape light from pre-dawn to deep night, to experience the essence of this place and craft meaningful images — images with feeling, that come from the heart.

Professional landscape photographer and night shooting expert Mark Bowie will lead this power-packed workshop on the innovative techniques he uses for taking extraordinary landscape imagery.  He will lead day and night photography field sessions to some of the Cape’s finest scenery: the ocean, beaches, dunes, coastal waterways, lighthouses and fishing villages.  Our schedule and selection of shooting locations will remain flexible to take best advantage of the weather and lighting conditions.  Indoor instructional sessions will be held at the Cape Cod Art Center in Barnstable.  Mark will explore the beautiful interaction of light and subject that speaks to somewhere deep within us.  He’ll also offer strategies, tips and techniques for the field and the digital darkroom on:

 

  • The quality, direction and color of light
  • Reading weather and shooting the light
  • The interaction of light and subject matter
  • Shooting at sunrise, sunset, twilight and at night
  • Photographing the night landscape in relation to the celestial skies
  • Seeing from different vantage points
  • Designing and fine-tuning powerful compositions using the principles of visual flow, dynamic tension, balance, leading lines, shapes and patterns
  • Using exposure to control mood and atmosphere
  • Determining exposure at night
  • Achieving critical focus-day and night
  • Using Live View
  • Working creatively with your full suite of lenses
  • Varying shutter speed for artistic effect
  • Targeting color and tonal palettes
  • The artistry of long exposures
  • Creating expressionistic abstracts
  • Shooting multiple exposures — layer masks, HDR’s, panoramas, star trails and time-lapse sequences — and blending them with state-of-the-art software
  • Focus stackingto maximize depth of field
  • Processing images for maximum impact

Informative and inspiring, this workshop is geared for both amateur and advanced photographers who want to take their landscape imagery to new levels.  Join Mark to explore the wonders of Cape Cod light.  “Find the light and shoot what’s in it.”

 

Bio:

Mark Bowie is a professional nature photographer, writer and much sought after public speaker.  His work has been published internationally in books, on calendars and posters, and in advertising media.  His first two coffee table books, Adirondack Waters and In Stoddard’s Footsteps have become landmark regional publications.  They were followed by The Adirondacks: In Celebration of the Seasons.  He is an expert on night photography and has produced two comprehensive e-books on it: The Light of Midnight: Photographing the Landscape at Night, and After Midnight: Night Photography by Example.  He has also produced an e-book on his remarkable Finding November project, his search to find the hidden beauty of this under-appreciated month.  For more on his work, see www.markbowie.com.

 

What To Bring

For questions contact Mark Bowie at mrbowie@earthlink.net

Photo Equipment Suggestions

In addition to all your basic equipment like cameras and lenses, I consider the following items important.  You can learn more about them at the workshop, but I made this checklist as a reminder to bring them if you already own them.  Items essential to this workshop are in bold:

Camera  – and extra camera body if you have one, just in case.

Lenses – Lenses from wide-angle zooms to telephotos will be of use on this workshop.  Also consider bringing your other favorite lenses, including macro and fast super wide-angle lenses in the 14-24mm range, especially for night photography.

Tripod – Light levels are usually too low early in the day and at night to photograph properly without a sturdy tripod.  If you need to purchase one, I can offer recommendations.  Hunt’s Photo often offers discount specials to my students.

Lots of Memory Card Storage.

Camera Battery Charger and Extra Batteries.

Non-abrasive Lens Cleaning Cloth and Wipes.

Polarizing Filter

Neutral Density (ND) Filters, Graduated Neutral Density Filters – To extend exposure times.  I use Tiffen 3- and 6-stop IR neutral density filters.  See www.tiffen.com.  Lee Filters also makes quality filters.  See www.leefilters.com.

Graduated Neutral Density Filters – Primarily for daytime use.  I use Singh-Ray 2-stop soft and 3-stop hard-edge graduated filters.  See www.singh-ray.com/grndgrads.html.

Shutter Release ­­– You can use a locking cable release, a wireless remote, or the camera’s self-timer (usually good only for exposures up to 30 seconds).  Shutter releases are available for specific camera models, from simple units that only trip the shutter, to more advanced units that allow the photographer to program exposure time, count down the exposure, shoot multiple exposures and timed intervals. These are available from photo retailers, including Hunts Photo and Video.  I use a wireless remote shutter release, the hahnel Giga T Pro II, about $99.

Intervalometer – For time-lapse photography.  If you are a Canon shooter, consider the Canon TC-80N3 Remote timer, or an equivalent. See

http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/164271-REG/Canon_2477A002_Timer_Remote_Controller_TC_80N3.html.

 

Here’s a less expensive alternative, but identical in structure and function: http://www.amazon.com/Cowboystudio-Timer-Remote-Control-Shutter/dp/B003PFYKGW/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1378831815&sr=8-6&keywords=canon+remote+timer.

 

 

Many Nikons have a built-in intervalometer, or you can use the Nikon MC-36A Multi-Function Remote Cord, about $190.  See http://www.huntsphotoandvideo.com/detail_page.cfm?ProductID=27032&mfg=Nikon&show=yes.  My hahnel Giga T Pro II remote has the same features for about half the price.

Flashlights &/or Headlamp – preferably with a red light, or cover with a red filter to prevent stray light from distracting others during night photography sessions.  Bring both small and large lights for light painting.  Bring other light sources, like LED’s or glow sticks, for painting with wild colors.

Rain/snow Cover – For camera and lens protection.  An inexpensive plastic shower cap works well in many instances.

Heat wraps – placed around the lens barrel to inhibit condensation.  I use Therma-Care heat wraps and similar brands.  About $5 for a box of 3.

Small towel, cloth or gaffer’s tape for covering the viewfinder to prevent light leak during long exposures.  Most cameras come with a viewfinder cover, but they’re often inconvenient to use.

Battery-powered Alarm Clock/Watch

Cell Phone.

 

Computer Equipment Suggestions

Laptop Computer – I highly recommend bringing your own laptop computer for downloading, processing and viewing your images.

Processing Software – Good choices include Adobe Lightroom, Elements, and Photoshop. We use Adobe’s Creative Cloud Photography Plan, about $10/month.  Free 30-day trials of these programs are available from Adobe.

To create time-lapse movies you may also want the following software:

  1. Lightroom. A free trial version is available at https://www.adobe.com/cfusion/tdrc/index.cfm?product=photoshop_lightroom

 

  1. QuickTime Pro: $29.99. Available at: http://www.apple.com/quicktime/extending/
  2. LRTimelapse: The free down load will allow you to load up to 400 images: http://lrtimelapse.com/download/.This software is particularly good at reducing flicker.

Back-up device – Such as an external hard drive.

Clothing & Outdoor Gear Suggestions

Warm Clothing – It is preferable to dress in warm layers for field trips as temperatures can change significantly and quickly.  Night can be very chilly at this time of year.

Warm Jacket or Coat.

Fleece Underlayer/Wool Sweater – Can be added or removed as the temperature falls or rises.

Rain Jacket & Pants – For wind as well as rain protection.

Warm Gloves/Mittens, Hat, and Hiking Boots or Sneakers.  Several pairs of warm, moisture-wicking socks.  Two pair of footwear is wise, in case one gets wet.  Sandals or muck boots are great for getting in the ocean and streams.

Hand Warmers.  Foot warmers.

Dress for the indoor sessions will be casual.

Other Suggestions

Water bottle.

Energy bars or other snacks.

All Levels Welcome.

Explore the quiet side of Acadia National Park: Uncrowded | Unexplored | Unexpected

The 2,000-acre Schoodic Peninsula offers a wide array of opportunities to experience Maine’s rugged coast from the cliffs at Raven’s Nest to the summit of Schoodic Head along a spruce and fir trail to the giant slabs of pink granite that extend into the open Atlantic at Schoodic Point.

Nearby the seaside villages of Birch Harbor, Prospect Harbor and the quaint Corea will be an opportunity to photograph classic downeast Maine.

ABOUT WORKSHOP:

“The question is not what you look at, but what you see” Henri David Thoreau

The art of seeing is the active process of observing the world around us with deliberate thoughtfulness. In photography it’s what you do with what you see that counts. Subject matter provides the building blocks while composition acts like glue holding it all together, and light sets the stage for capturing a moment capable of conveying a sense of being there.

The workshop begins on Thursday with an orientation and power point presentation on “The Art of Landscape Photography” covering the aesthetics of photography and technical aspects of digital imaging.

The workshop features approximately 15 hours in the field with 3-hour sessions beginning each day in the pre-dawn and in the afternoons until twilight. Ronald had an intimate knowledge of these regions and designs an itinerary based on habitat, tides, and weather. Walking distances will vary from roadside vantage points to moderate trail hikes.

Complimenting the field experience will be 8-10 hours of classroom time where we will meet each day for an open dialogue covering subjects from capture to post processing and how to create a digital workflow using Lightroom and Photoshop. In the digital age our ability to teach has been considerably enhanced. Individual instruction, viewing images and group critiques to evaluate results is done in an environment that seeks to help you build confidence in your creative and technical skills and become a better photographer.

Expressive Photo Editing with Snapseed w/ Barbara Braman

Expressive Photo Editing with Snapseed

Instructor: Barbara Braman

Day: Saturday, July 28

Time: 10am-1pm

Cost: Members $70 | Non-Members $90

Description:

Wondering how you can edit your smartphone photos to be more expressive? Or maybe you want to edit your photos to create and straighten the horizon, highlight your subject, or create mood? Snapseed is the app for you. It is super easy to learn and you can use it for complex creative images. It is the “little black dress” of apps. Whether you just want to adjust the color or exposure on a landscape photo, tweak the colors on a multi-layered digital collage or drawing or use it to create a fantastical digital collage, Snapseed has the tools.

This workshop goes well beyond basic editing. We will start simply and then explore how to use the more advanced features, as well as how to use the app in creative ways. For photographers with smartphones capable of taking RAW images, we will discuss how to get the most out of Snapseed’s RAW editing function.
 

All that you need for this class is a smartphone, the app Snapseed, and a sense of adventure!
