Create your own Masterpiece - Lighting and Editing beautiful still life

Looking for a unique and personal holiday gift? Create your own Masterpiece!

Cathy Nocera is coming back by popular demand to share her incredible expertise in both studio lighting and editing. This workshop sold out within days the last time we offered it!

Learn how to create photographic art worthy of framing and hanging on your walls.

$149 early registration through November 7
$169 regular price November 8 through 17

Students will bring to class elements for a still life from their own home - vase, fruit, material, etc. that would go well with their decor and personal style. Each student sets up the still life and photographs it (with guidance for exposure, composition, etc), post processing and art work applied after lunch break.

Class will include:

- rules of design; color harmony, creating pleasing leading lines, shadow ratios, composition
- photographing your personal "treasures" with studio lighting.
- post processing using Photoshop/Elements techniques
- texturing with flair - adding "paint" to your piece
- explore cropping for maximum effect

Basic knowledge of Photoshop or Elements is essential. This will be a hands on class with one on one guidance, limited to only five students.

Please bring your laptop, power cord, mouse and pad or wacom tablet (if you have one) and Photoshop or Elements installed, registered and working.

BONUS: Free Photoshop brushes and textures will be provided at no additional cost.

10 a.m. to 3 p.m. with break for lunch your own.
