Project Basho Newsletter May '10: Find a Fresh Perspective
Summer Semester Starts in June
Summer is just around the corner and we are looking forward to a busy semester of photography classes and workshops!
The summer will bring a handful of newly-developed classes as well as our old classics. For photographers who are comfortable behind the camera but do not know what to do with all the images they have made, we are excited to introduce a new 5-week class on Adobe Lightroom. This powerful software is an elegant solution the problem of organizing, editing, and exporting large libraries of images. Participants will establish an intuitive workflow that can be tailored to suit the individual needs of their practice.
Building off the popularity of Learning Your Digital SLR, we have also developed Digital SLR in Practice, a one-day shooting-oriented class in which students will be able to integrate key concepts under the guidance of an instructor. Students will have a chance to experiment with depth-of-field, motion-blur, and panning while incorporating compostional elements like negative space and proportion. This dyanamic class is an invaluable experience for students who learn by doing rather than by seeing.
Additionally, we continue to provide our popular series of beginner classes, Photographic Vision I and Photographic Vision Digital I. In these comprehensive, semester-long courses, students synthesize the technical considerations of exposure, camera operation, and printing as means for creative visual expression. Through lectures and assignments students will be pushed to examine their surroundings with fresh eyes while mastering the fundamentals of shooting, editing, and printing.
