with Meg Loeks

4 WEEK WORKSHOP BEGINS JAN 18

$300 Full Participation | $150 Study Along
Click-Photo-School-Workshop-with-Meg-Loeks-2

Transform everyday moments into classic works of art.

We’ll cover color, learning how to utilize it in order to strengthen images and to add depth. We’ll discover how to manipulate light to enhance images – both indoors and out – from rim light to challenging forms of light (like full sun!) to golden hour haze and backlight. We’ll explore how to make important decisions about what to include in the frame for stronger compositions. Finally, we’ll learn some post processing techniques to enhance the images that we’ve created.

From day to day activities to getting in the frame, you will be encouraged to slow down and document life in a purposeful and beautiful way.

PREREQUISITES

To get the most out of this workshop, you should have the ability to control your exposure, basic understanding of white balance, and some knowledge of either Adobe Lightroom and/or Photoshop.
