3 Hour Outdoor Introduction to Digital Photography Workshop

Eagle Point

$99.00

This is an outdoor workshop for beginners that typically runs twice per month on Sunday mornings from 9 am-12 am. Click See All or this link to see the whole calendar. https://www.meetup.com/Rhode-Island-Photography-Workshops/events/calendar/ Anyone that takes this workshop can take Part II at a discounted price. Click on the calendar link above to look for available dates on Saturday mornings from 9-12 am. Plus anyone that signs up for Part II will get my E-Book, "Learn to Create More Than a Snapshot" for free. I don't run the workshops from December to March because of the extreme weather. Workshops resume in April weather permitting. If you have coupons that are due to expire over this period they will be honored in April. Workshop Fee: $150 but it's now on sale for $99. Please bring your camera and it's manual along with all of your lenses and accessories. Always check that your batteries are fully charged before coming to the workshop. It's also a good idea to bring a tripod but it's not necessary. For your comfort, it's also a good idea to check the weather forecast for the day of the workshop and to dress accordingly. I have found that it's best to dress warmer than you think you need to with layers that can be removed if it ends up being warmer than you anticipated. If this workshop doesn't meet your needs I offer private one on one workshops on any subject, at a time that is convenient for both of us. The cost is $75 per hour for a private workshop and you can contact me at [masked] for more information or click this link to schedule your appointment. https://app.acuityscheduling.com/schedule.php?owner=17421753 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ What You Will Learn: 1.

Lightroom Classic

My House

$60.00

Lightroom Classic The class will alternate weeks covering the Library and Develop modules in Lightroom. If you are the only person registered you can choose which module you want to focus on. This class will run with one person registered. However, please register at least one day before the class so I know your planning to attend. Let's face it, digital photography isn't like film photography. We can't just mail our image to a lab and wait for nice pictures to come back from the lab. Now you are the lab, fixing your images in some sort of image editing program is at least half the job you have as the photographer. Below you will find my plan to help you with this problem. My new favorite quote and I think it definitely applies to learning Photoshop. "People that want to do something, do what's convenient. People that are determined to do something do whatever it takes."
