This two-part workshop series offers lessons for enhancing your photography skills. Choose from sessions in photographic capture and post-production editing, with both workshops offered in Fall 2023 and Spring 2024. Participants may choose whether to take one or both sessions.
Camera Controls and Lighting focuses on the basics of camera settings, whether on a phone or digital camera, and the importance of managing and knowing how to manipulate light. Participants’ existing photography practices will undergo constructive peer review, crafting strategies to enhance product representation on websites and social media. Explore creative strategies for product and editorial photography, enriched by practical demonstrations of cost-effective styling solutions.
Photo Retouching is dedicated to demystifying the post-production process, focusing on basic photo editing and retouching skills using both free and subscription-based editing software. The workshop aims to empower participants with the essential tools necessary to elevate and refine their company’s images and visual assets, enhancing and correcting them effectively. Participants will learn how to correct common problems with color and contrast as well as object removal, and are encouraged to bring in their own images to practice with during the session.
Both classes will take place at Pratt Institute’s Manhattan campus. Participants are welcome to join one or both sessions.
