Digital Darkroom Workshop: Getting more out of your photos
This event will be held in-person at Five Rivers in Delmar, and will also be available live via Zoom.
Digital technology has revolutionized photography in a lot of ways. One of the most striking examples is that now practically anybody with a computer or smart phone can re-touch their own photos in a matter of minutes -- something that, in the film era, might have taken weeks through a lab, and was only realistically available to professional photographers. This workshop will provide numerous examples of simple computer tools (primarily Adobe Lightroom) to help adjust and improve many aspects of digital images such as framing, exposure, contrast, shadows, sharpening, noise, white balance, etc. The emphasis will be on getting the most information out of bird photos, but will also touch on landscapes and "animal-in-habitat" images.
