SEEING COLOR & ENHANCING CREATIVITY
” what are the ingredients that make images work”
Seeing Color & Enhancing Creativity is a creative program that seeks to reinvigorate your capacity for creativity. Creativity is fueled by experiences, sights, sounds and smells. Sitting still won’t bring new ideas in; experimenting and trying new things will jog your creativity. Becoming a better photographer is really about training yourself to make your mind’s eye more creative. It’s about how to look for, see, and create better images. While some of this is intuitive, other parts of this take training. Rather than just taking pictures, this seminar will help refine your creative vision and help you create more effective and compelling images bringing your creativity to a new level. We will explore why some images work and why others don’t, and work on specific exercises and techniques to improve your overall creative process.
CREATING DYNAMIC IMAGES TO PLEASE YOURSELF AND THE CLIENT
The Road from Journalism to Fine Art
This lecture is a creative lecture about the highlights and frustrations of 35 years shooting journalism, corporate, advertising and now fine art. Sitting still won’t bring new ideas in; experimenting and trying new things will jog your creativity. Practice, practice, practice. Creativity is like a muscle that you need to flex regularly. In much the same way that our bodies get out of shape without using our muscles, as a photographer our cognitive and visual capabilities decrease if we don’t try new thing. We must push boundaries to succeed and continuing pushing boundaries even when there seem that there are no more to push. This lecture will seek to balance what the client wants or needs and the visual voice of the photographer.

DIGITAL WORKFLOW LIVE
No one ever accused a creative mind of being organized. The two don’t usually go hand in hand. But when you’re a photographer, being organized is invaluable. And if you’re shooting digitally, it’s crucial. Utilizing the 7 modules of Lightroom 4 Seth Resnick will demonstrate detailed workflow, digital asset management, processing and image delivery. You’ll also learn to tag, name, size, and sharpen your images so they’re perfect for reproduction. Plus, you’ll become an expert in keeping every image you shoot organized and archived.
Many photographers assume that the switching to digital simply means changing equipment and using a digital camera instead of film. This philosophy couldn’t be farther from the truth. The entire process of digital is different from analog. This lecture sponsored by Canon’s Explorer of Light Program will provide valuable information to those of all levels of experience in digital imaging. It will feature a format that is taught in English not Ubergeek and will focus on the “Hows” of digital capture, file prep and delivery. Some topics include: Lightroom, Photoshop CS5, Camera Raw, Bridge, raw vs. jpg, color space, white balance, understanding histograms, interpolation, digital exposure vs. film, digital problems and answers, sharpening, metadata, archiving and digital negative format. Resnick is a rare melange of inspiration, business acumen, creativity and tech-no-fluency. He is considered a leader in untangling the snarl of digital issues that frustrates many film and digital photographers. Seth has been working hand in hand with Adobe as an alpha developer aiding in making workflow a breeze for photographers.
