Instructor: Alan Whiteside
Class Availability: Open but an on-going class
Class Duration: Start January 8,2019 and ends June 2019
Where: Room 11
Sign-up: FULL
Description: This class will be focused on a thoughtful approach to capturing an image and some workflow decisions/considerations to fulfill your initial expectations as much as possible. While not a software editing class, the results of software enhancements made to RAW photos will be used as examples of moving toward the initial vision. The class requires submitting images and discussing the thought process for creating them, as well as explaining enhancements made to achieve final images.

Two goals for participants: be able to (1) describe what’s in your mind’s eye for the final output prior to taking the photo and (2) enhance the initial capture to approximate your initial vision.
