90 Minute Introduction Course

$ 90.00

Adobe Lightroom 5

" Basic Workflow, Catalog to Develop "

   This 90 minute course will be an introduction into the fudamentals of Adobe's Lightroom 5 imaging software.

The course will cover the install of the software program and set-up  of the Catalog, which is the main feature of Lightroom. From there we will cover the "idea" of a workflow. One of the most important process in digital photography is how to manage the image capture and importing those images to your work space.

We will explore the best ways to import the images to a folder on a external HD and create a " Catalog " of those files so they can be easily viewed in the "Library Module".The Lightroom interface works in specific "Modules", each of which serve a function from the Library to Develop and Print.

You will discover how this helps create "The Workflow" and how that makes the process a more managable and enjoyable experience.

 

Adobe Photoshop Elements 12

   Adobe Photoshop Elements serves all your photo needs. Easily organize and find photos; edit and enhance them.

Sort and manage photos based on people, places, and events using new Organizer views. Find your photos using visual tags that represent people, places, pets, events, and objects.

Easily view and share your Elements photos on your smartphone and tablet. And finally — unlock the photos from your mobile device, and see them in your Elements albums back at home.*

Get the photo fixes you’re looking for with one-step shortcuts that whiten teeth or make skies a vibrant blue. Make unwanted photo elements vanish with one stroke of the Spot Healing Brush, and use Auto Smart Tone for intelligent photo corrections.

Use a variety of one-touch Frames, Effects, and Textures to add depth to your images.

Macro basics, photographing flowers

   These classes are designed to bring auxiliary lights into your photographic experience. You own a camera and you enjoy using it but you want more control of light than your built in camera flash provides. Our introductory classes will introduce you to auxiliary continuous lighting options. Continuous lighting has evolved dramatically over the past 5 years with the introduction of fluorescent daylight balanced Cool Lights and daylight balanced LED lighting systems. The "hot light" warm color temperatures and production of extreme and dangerous heat levels are a thing of the past.

These classes will present a brief overview of continuous lighting vs. strobe lighting and will cover the advantages and proper techniques for using continuous lighting to get the most out of your photography. In addition to still photography, current cameras feature video which demands continuous lighting. Improve your video recordings as well as your photographs!

Learn what it takes to light a product shot, a still life or macro shot, and of course portraits. Our instruction will introduce you to single and double light setups, the use of reflectors and diffusers, and how to use a diffusion light table. Proper light metering will also be discussed. The portrait lighting class will discuss using a soft box or umbrella and use of reflectors to add warmth to portraits or bounce light into shadows. Understanding the exact angle of reflector placement for appropriate results will be discussed and demonstrated.


These classes will be a demo and overview of the various continuous lighting options available to you.

If you are interested in a private lesson in any of these areas, please call for an appointment.

 

Private lessons are by appointment $60.00/hour.

If you have a product you would like to photograph,

give us a call, we can set up a time to go over lighting equipment  choices that would best achieve your goals.

Photomart is proud to offer  photographic classes  We offer entry level classes so anyone who would like to advance their photographic skills can easily do so.We offer  a photographic basics class designed to advance your image making skills.  We also offer classes in entry level continuous lighting.
