This workshop explains filtering photographs using Photoshop and the sophisticated Nik Suite of filters. These filters alter color, focus and exposure as well as simulating papers and films from the past. We will look at before and after versions of photographs and discuss the value and uses of these filters. Students will edit their own photographs and review them together.
What do these high-tech filters add to photography? When are they useful? Do they make photographs into something else? How do you know when you’ve created your final image? Students should bring 1-5 photos in digital format for transformation and discussion.
Basic computer skills are required for this workshop.
Learn the art of black and white photography as it has been done for over 100 years! Watch as your photos come to life in the wet trays. Students should shoot one or two rolls of black and white 35mm film ahead of time. Kodak, T Max, Tri X or the Arista brands are preferred and can be purchased online. Negatives will be available for students that do not have a camera or 35mm film. This workshop will cover film development, printing basics, and more interesting artsy techniques. This class is for the student who printed in high school and loved it, one who needs a refresher course, or one who has always wanted to learn this art style.
