This workshop took place in January 2018. We are now beginning to plan for the 2020 workshops week. Please check back later for details.

About The Class

Instructor: Jean “Gino” Miele

Medium: Photography

Workshop Title: Visual Alchemy

Take your photos from “almost” to “wow!” We all use the same tools (cameras, light, computers), so why do some photographers produce consistently exceptional work? Because they understand the magic necessary to transform what’s in front of the camera into a stunning photograph. Understand what you are trying to say, figure out what risks you need to take to get there, and learn to use shooting techniques, Photoshop, and/or Lightroom to create stronger, more striking images, and take your work to the next level. Participants should be comfortable with their camera and with Photoshop or Lightroom.

Workshop Ended

Those of us who call ourselves photographers – we’re in the seeing business. I’m interested in exploring how the way we see the world makes a difference, and in helping all of us see more clearly
