Join me, professional landscape photographer Andrew Collett for a truly unique photography adventure in beautiful Muskoka. During the workshop we will immerse ourselves in all aspects of nature photography and digital image processing. Our time together will be a combination of in the field shooting and studio sessions and will cover the following topics:
I will be taking you to some of my favourite locations in and around Muskoka where I will be teaching you a combination of technical and creative lessons that will ensure you are shooting for optimal quality while unleashing the creative potential of the scene. Topics covered in the field will include:
* Learning to shoot in manual mode for optimal aperture and shutter speed settings
* Reading and understanding the histogram
* How to choose the best exposure based on the information provided in the histogram
* Learning to manually focus for maximum depth of field
* Equipment selection, what works and what doesn't’t.
* Crafting compositions that recreate a sense of "depth"
* Understanding visual rhythm and balance
* Selecting compelling subject matter
* Choosing the right light and atmosphere
Held at my production studio in Bracebridge, I will be teaching you the digital workflow I use to bring RAW files to life. Using Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom, I will teach you a workflow that produces optimal quality in a simplistic and easy to follow process. This is not about Photoshop tricks, it is about learning how to subtly process your RAW file to bring out their best qualities and express your artistic vision.
* Colour Management and Monitor Calibration
* Raw workflow using Photoshop and Lightroom
* Using Photoshop to subtlety enhance your image

This workshop is open to all levels of photographers but will benefit those most who have a basic understanding of image processing software (does not have to be Photoshop) and who shoot with a DSLR camera.
