Photography Basics and Adobe Lightroom Post-Processing Guidance with Mike Murray
Sat-Sun, May 21-22, 2022 | 7-10am Sat, 10am-12pm Sun | Deadline to register: May 14
Day 1: Field Day at Parfrey’s Glen State Natural Area
In the field, we’ll cover how to use aperture, shutter speed, ISO, and focusing to perfect your compositions and exposures.
Required materials: DSLR or point-and-shoot camera. We will NOT be covering cell phone photography in this class. Bring waterproof footwear and appropriate walking/hiking attire. Meet at Parfrey’s Glen State Natural Area no later than 7am.
Required class prep: Understand how to navigate to your camera’s aperture, ISO, and shutter speed settings
Day 2: Post-Processing and Adobe Lightroom at River Arts Studio
In the studio, we’ll spend time to process the photos you took on Day 1. Students should bring their cameras and any necessary cords, laptop and charger, and a notepad.
Required materials/prep: Students should have Adobe Lightroom Classic downloaded on their laptops before class begins. A free 7 day trial is available here. If you already have another photo processing program we’ll do our best to work with what you have.
In the event a workshop is cancelled due to low enrollment, you will be contacted immediately and refunded entirely. Please review our cancellation policy here.
Here at River Arts, your safety is the most important thing for us. We plan to run in-person studio classes, but with the following safety precautions added:
- A limit of 7 students in each class
- All students will work at their own 6ft table, maintaining social distancing
- Studio staff will clean and disinfect all surfaces at the end of each day.
- Latex-free rubber gloves, disposable masks, and hand sanitizer will be available to all students free of charge
- Face masks highly recommended for unvaccinated guests
- Subject to change based on most current CDC guidelines*
We plan to keep these measures in place for the foreseeable future, depending on where things are at. It’s very much a day-by-day process at this point. Thank you!
