  • Digital Workflow for Event and Portrait Photographers
    10:30 AM-1:30 PM

    Digital Workflow for event and portrait photographers.

     

    Contact Samy’s Camera directly to register. 

     

    Investment: $49.95

     

    This 3 hour class covers everything from capture to end product. We believe that what wedding and event photographers need most, especially those starting out or with a “day job”  but have the least, is time. Time to find new clients by networking with other vendors, meeting wedding planners, marketing, and of course, shooting. Learning an efficient, time saving, safe and secure workflow can be the difference between becoming successful at your new career / passion, or being overwhelmed by it.

    Topics covered: In-camera RAW capture and backup, digital filing system set up, downloading, redundant backup, culling with Photomechanic, correcting and enhancing in Lightroom, creating “finished art” with Photoshop and building online galleries. We will also touch lightly on in-person sales and album design.

    Best Experience Level: Beginner and Intermediate photographers. Basic knowledge of Lightroom and Photoshop is recommended but not a must.

    What to bring: Note taking materials. Cameras are not necessary. You may bring your laptop, but only to take notes if that’s how you like to take notes. Because this class covers a great deal of information and not all students are at the same level of proficiency with the programs discussed, it is a lecture and demonstration style class, not a “follow along on your laptop” workshop.

    Suggested pre-class homework: The more you can familiarize yourself with the programs we’ll be using before attending, the more you will get out of this class.

We’ll have models to photograph at our workshops; these will be couples, for the wedding workshops, and individuals for the OCF and Studio Portrait Lighting workshops. You will photograph the models, and come away with nice images, but these workshops are not meant to be “Portfolio Building Events”, they are meant to teach you how to recreate each situation and give you a better understanding of lighting, posing, photo and lighting gear, and the photographic process.

If you are considering attending one of our workshops but have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email or call us. We’re always happy to chat with you to make sure you attend and benefit from the right workshops for you.
