SketchUp is a powerful 3D design program that more and more people use for woodworking, blacksmithing, woodturning, and other crafts. This course is for people who have not used the program at all. You will begin with exercises to learn how to navigate the 3D drawing space and use SketchUp's drawing and modeling tools. You also learn the rules for success--essential good practices to ensure that SketchUp does what you want it to. You will apply those new skills and rules to create at least one original model. This will give you the knowledge and confidence to keep using SketchUp profitably in your own artistic endeavors. Bring a laptop (Mac or Windows is fine, but an iPad will not work), with the free version of SketchUp already installed. Go to www.sketchup.com to download the program called SketchUp Make. Ages 18 and over.

Adobe PhotoShop. In the previous sessions of this series, we considered the development of understanding what a camera can do, the skills of using a camera, how to perform deliberate photography, how to begin the process of Rendering of the captured images, and how to illuminate an indoor or outdoor scene most effectively. In this final session, we will practice using Adobe PhotoShop on the participants’ laptop computers to produce the most faithful “straight” photographs and to Render them on a professional printer. We will also demonstrate at least one more elaborate method for enhancing photographs using some of the powerful capabilities of Adobe PhotoShop. The series will conclude with considering some of the legal and business aspects of fine art photography.

This is the last of six individual sessions intended for moderately skilled photographers who wish to begin to develop deeper skills in Seeing, Capturing and Rendering, primarily in landscape or outdoor photography. Attendance will be limited to six participants. For this session, students should bring a laptop computer. Additional study materials will be provided for continuing after the course. Ages 18 and over, a $5 materials fee will be added to the tuition for this first session.

Rendering. In the first and second sessions of this series, we considered the development of the skills of Seeing and Capturing, and in the third session we put those skills into practice in an Outdoor Shoot. The outcome of this is that we now have many Bags of Bits that may eventually be Rendered into stunning photographs. While much of the Rendering process can be automated to produce pleasing results, the skilled Photographer will want much more precise control over the process in order to reproduce for the Viewer the original experience of the scene. In this session we will consider what a digital image file is, how it can be managed – since Photographers produce a lot of them – and how it may be adjusted and manipulated to bring out the essence of what the Photographer saw within the principles of “straight” photography. This will introduce participants to computer programs in the Adobe PhotoShop family and provide an overview of how to use them.

This is the fourth of six individual sessions intended for moderately skilled photographers who wish to begin to develop deeper skills in Seeing, Capturing and Rendering, primarily in landscape or outdoor photography. Attendance will be limited to six participants. For this and subsequent sessions, students should bring a digital camera that they are familiar with that has controls for aperture, shutter and ISO (don't forget to charge the battery and bring a memory card). The final session of the series also requires each participant to bring a laptop computer. Each session will end with a photographic assignment to be reviewed at the following session. Additional study materials will be provided for continuing after the course. Ages 18 and over.

Lighting. In the previous sessions of this series, we considered the development of understanding what a camera can do, the skills of using a camera, how to perform deliberate photography, and how to begin the process of Rendering of the captured images. In this session, which will be lead by Sally Andersen-Bruce, a distinguished professional photographer known for her portraits of people and animals, we will focus on the practical aspects of illuminating the subject, whether a person or a landscape. That is, understanding the role that light plays in creating an interesting scene and how to achieve that lighting effect whether using outdoor or indoor and ambient or artificial illumination.

This is the fifth of six individual sessions intended for moderately skilled photographers who wish to begin to develop deeper skills in Seeing, Capturing and Rendering, primarily in landscape or outdoor photography. Attendance will be limited to six participants. For this and subsequent sessions, students should bring a digital camera that they are familiar with that has controls for aperture, shutter and ISO (don't forget to charge the battery and bring a memory card); for this session a tripod is highly desirable. The final session of the series also requires each participant to bring a laptop computer. Each session will end with a photographic assignment to be reviewed at the following session. Additional study materials will be provided for continuing after the course. Ages 18 and over.

SP6406 Nov 12 2016 (10am-12:30pm) Saturday (River Room)

In the first session of this series, we considered the development of the skill of Seeing. In this second session, we progress to learning the capabilities that the camera offers for Capturing what the Photographer has seen. How can we use the camera to structure and simplify the scene, so that it engages the Viewer’s eye and enables the Viewer to share the Photographer’s experience of the scene? This class will consider how the elements of a camera combine with light to form a chosen image, will demonstrate how to use the many controls of a digital camera to achieve the desired image, and will also discuss how to plan a shoot. Students will also select a location for Session 3 – The Outdoor Shoot.

This is the second of six individual sessions intended for moderately skilled photographers who wish to begin to develop deeper skills in Seeing, Capturing and Rendering, primarily in landscape or outdoor photography. Attendance will be limited to six students. For this and subsequent sessions, students should bring a digital camera that they are familiar with and that has controls for aperture, shutter and ISO (don't forget to charge the battery and bring a memory card).

Session 1 – Seeing
The act of photography is not random. It begins with the Photographer seeking out, or noticing, or even constructing a scene that can be captured and rendered into an image that will engage the Viewer. It begins with Seeing. How do we learn to see as a photographer? This class will introduce practices that help to develop this essential skill and students will try these out on the Craft Center campus.
This is the first of six individual sessions intended for moderately skilled photographers who wish to begin to develop deeper skills in Seeing, Capturing and Rendering, primarily in landscape or outdoor photography. Attendance will be limited to six (?) students. No camera is required for this first session, but for subsequent sessions, students should bring a digital camera that they are familiar with and that has controls for aperture, shutter and ISO (don't forget to charge the battery and bring a memory card). The final session of the series also requires each student to bring a laptop computer. Each session will end with a photographic assignment to be reviewed at the following session. For this first class students are invited to bring one of their existing photographs for use during the class. Additional study materials will be provided for continuing after the course. Ages 18 and over, a $5 materials fee will be added to the tuition for this first session.
