Digital SLR Workflow Intensive: October 20-22

© Genevieve Russell
This digital workflow course provides a wealth of information, inspiration, and the taste of the weeklong workshop experience in a two-and-a-half day “hands-on” program.

Internationally renowned Workshop’s digital guru Jerry Courvoisier and photographer Genevieve Russell, will inspire participants and share their personal approaches to color management, digital capture, workflow, Raw format processing, and image archiving. Their mutual goal is for participants to become comfortable with their digital SLR cameras and the workflow process so they can focus on making successful images.

Topics covered include digital camera tools; Raw file format and image resolution; successful digital capture; basic image adjustment; batch processing; and Web application features. A photography assignment focuses on capturing the essence of Santa Fe. An evening presentation by workshop leaders Jerry and Genevieve will provide an in depth look at their experiences with digital photography in the field.

Photo-Eye's Photographer's Showcase Presents New Work by Rose-Lynn Fisher
© Rose-Lynn Fisher, 2006
"The first time I saw a bee’s eye magnified 200 times its size, I was amazed to find that the structure of the eye is a field of hexagons corresponding to the structure of honeycomb. I wondered, is this a coincidence or a clue? Does the physical structure of the bee’s eye influence the shaping of the hexagonal waxen cells, or is this simply an example of congruency in form? Is there a parallel kind of encoding, metaphorically speaking, relevant to humanity? What if the union of our spiritual and temporal capacity to see, to know, to do, was essentially in alignment with an intrinsic structuring?"--Rose-Lynn Fisher.
