the most important parts of his digital darkroom workflow, taking several 
raw photos and developing them using Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. Ian

Workshop Titled: ‘Unleash your creativity in Camera!’

Led by Piper Mackay
Thursday, March 7 – 1:00 – 5:00 PM

Once most of us develop some of the basic skills of photography, exposure, focus, and depth of field, we begin traveling to exotic places, snapping away at what stirs our souls, but we soon find ourselves stagnating at this level. It seems so exciting when we are pointing our cameras at an exotic subject, clicking the shutter, getting the exposure correct, and taking a sharp photograph, but soon, you find that your images all start looking the same, somewhat mediocre, and your photography is not improving. The magic really begins when you learn how to make a creative image through manipulating your camera settings.

Known for her creative style, Piper will start this workshop off with a powerful slide show of compelling images created in camera by selecting different white balances, over and under exposing to create dramatic light and high key images, working with motion in a still image, and using multiple exposures. She will then work hands on with you to try all these techniques that can have great impact on elevating the style of your photography.

Equipment needed: camera body (any style) and a lens with some range (24-70/105) or 70-200) tripod.

Workshop Titled: The Hidden Gems and Power of the Olympus System

Led by Frank Smith
Thursday, March 7 – 1:00 – 5:00 PM

Join Frank Smith, Olympus Visionary, as he takes us on a journey through the hidden gems and the revolutionary technologies of the Olympus OM-D mirrorless camera system. The game changing technology will provide you with enhanced levels of confidence & creative freedom you have not had before.

Frank will guide us through the menu of the many built in features, modes, functions and settings of the OM-D system including:

  • Focus Stacking/Bracketing
  • Pro-capture (up to 60 frames per second)
  • Live-composite
  • High Res (80 mega pixel images)
  • 5 Axis Image Stabilization
  • HDR (High Dynamic Range)
  • JPG/RAW (both automatic & manual set up options)
  • 4K Video / time lapses

Frank will demonstrate and share imagery from the use of these features and the professional level of capturing images by knowing how to maximize the technology. The Olympus OM-D system has tremendous capacity and power built in to the mirrorless system and is also a top go – to system for many professional photographers based on the light weight construction and advanced technology.

Whether you already own an OM-D series camera or are considering a switch to Olympus this workshop has something for you. Thanks to generous sponsorship by Olympus, loaner camera bodies and lenses will be available for participants to try out. When you sign up for the workshop you will be asked if you will be bringing your own OM-D camera or would like to borrow one. Supplies will be limited so sharing may be required!
