Image Capture at Housewerks with Lightroom Add-On Training
*** NOTE: BEFORE YOU RSVP TO THIS MEETUP, PLEASE GO TO TO TO REGISTER AND PAY *** OVERVIEW Here is a unique, two-part workshop where you will learn and practice all aspects of photographic image capture, and then, in a follow-on session, learn to use Lightroom to turn your images to works of art. These sessions will be jam-packed with training and experience for every photographer at all skill levels. ALL your questions will be answered, and you will be able to go forward to photograph with confidence. In the first part of the workshop on Saturday December 15th, professional photographers Fred Silber and Steve Rosenbach will be your instructors, guiding you to help you home in on interesting subjects and walk you through all aspects of image capture, including shooting in RAW, exposure, custom white balance, composition, HDR, and other techniques. By the end of this session, you will have some really good images in your camera. For the second part of the workshop on Wednesday December 19th, from 6 to 9pm, you will bring the raw images from the first session, and we will walk you through how to use Lightroom to turn your very good images into extraordinary ones. SHOOTING LOCATION For the first part of this workshop on Saturday December 15th, we will be shooting at Housewerks Salvage in the Pigtown section of Baltimore. This business has an enormous and eccentric collection of items of all kinds of salvaged architectural and industrial items - their collection of both common and unusual objects, from the mundane to the magnificent, make great photo subjects! The company's building itself, built in 1885 as the headquarters of The Chesapeake Gas Company of Baltimore City, is visually intriguing by itself, and a subject for great photos. We will be able to photograph pretty much anywhere in the building, and if weather permits, we will go into their yard to photograph the substantial number of items there (see Fred Silber's photo above, taken in the yard.) LIGHTROOM TRAINING In the second part of the workshop on Wednesday evening December 19th, we will use your own RAW images, captured at Housewerks, to teach you to be a competent and creative Lightroom user. We will work in a comfortable location near BWI airport (attendees will get the address and directions after registering.) Want to Attend Just the Capture Workshop? As an option, you can attend just the Image Capture Workshop session at Housewerks. Please see the separate “add to cart” section at the bottom of the webpage linked above and below. Please note that those who register for both sessions get a significant discount. *** NOTE: BEFORE YOU RSVP TO THIS MEETUP, PLEASE GO TO TO TO REGISTER AND PAY ***

    What we're about

    Do you have an interest, or even a passion for photography? Would you enjoy photographing in a vibrant, urban environment, along with other friendly and engaging people who share your interest? Are you a beginner, intermediate, or expert/pro photographer? Then you belong with us! Our mission is to photographically explore Baltimore and its environs. Our vision for our Members is to learn from someone who know more than you and teach someone who know less than you.

    Our goal is to have at least one free photo event a month, concentrating on photo walks. We will also offer some photo workshops for fees that will be good values.

    There are so many extraordinary places to photograph in and around Baltimore... can't wait to shoot them with you!
