Make Your Photos Look Great With Lightroom! (or Camera Raw!)

before-and-after
Are you 100% confident that your color correction is all that it could
be? Do you often work on photos with the feeling that you just know
there’s a better photograph in there somewhere, but you’re just not
sure how to achieve it?

Then you need this class! This intensive one-day session on raw image
tonal and color correction is based on George Jardine’s Image
Correction Master Class video series. This is a hands-on class, so you
should plan to bring a laptop with Lightroom 5 and/or Adobe Photoshop
to get the most out of the class. We will be using Adobe Lightroom,
but those using Adobe Camera Raw will find that the controls and
techniques are identical. Please join us!

The Image Correction Master Class is not intended to be an exhaustive
look at every feature in the Lightroom Develop module. But rather this
class will focus on giving you the background you need in the core
image correction controls to make great corrections. (We will cover
the Basic Tone controls, the Tone Curve, and the HSL panel.) If we
have time we will touch on the Detail panel, with a discussion of
Sharpening and Noise Reduction.

Class will be Saturday, November 23, at the Lone Tree Civic Center.

Class fee is $69.95. Click here to register.

Lunch will be provided.

Sampling of the Seasons at Roxborough State Park ~ Fall

Roxborough State Park is often referred to as one of the crown jewels of the Colorado State Parks, and deservedly so.  Photographers and tourists alike can’t help but marvel at the towering rock formations and the opportunities to walk among wildlife that is quite comfortable with humans in their midst.  From spectacular panoramic views to small birds and mammals rustling in the underbrush of the oak islands at the base of the rocks, the photo ops seem to be everywhere.  And no two days in the Park are the same!

(Image is one of the winning photos for the 2014 calendar)

The Friends of Roxborough State Park sponsor an annual photo contest and calendar featuring photos taken in Roxborough State Park. The contest opened to the public in 2013 and the photos in the 2014 calendar provide a sample of the photographic opportunities available in the Park.

Sessions will start in the early morning for optimal light and color and last about two hours (any earlier and the sunlight will not have reached over the foothills into the park). Your $7 entry fee is good for 24 hours. You can stay all day or leave and return later in the day.

This Session is the 2nd in a Series of 4!

Duration:  3+ hours per session beginning at the Visitor Center at 8:30 a.m.

Registration Limit:  15 per session

Cost: Cost: $28 per single session or $100 for all four. No refunds. All proceeds go to support the educational and interpretive mission of Roxborough State Park. Spouses not carrying cameras  may join the group for a $10.fee  Registrations are being taken on the Front Range Photography Group Meetup site.

All proceeds go to support the educational and interpretive mission of Roxborough State Park. 

Note: In addition a Colorado State Parks Pass or a $7 day fee is required for admittance to the Park.

Focus: This series consists of four two-hour sessions (sampling the seasons) walking the trails with a seasoned naturalist and a photographer who knows the Park from a winning photographer’s point of view. Sessions will provide insight into locations within the park for great photos of the geology, weather phenomenon, spring wildflowers, birds, bears and other fauna. The purpose is to familiarize participants with the opportunities available in the Park during different seasons, with the assumption that you will return on your own as often as you can when the time and conditions are just right!  Maybe one of your photos will make it into the annual Friends of Roxborough State Park calendar.

Recommended Gear:

Camera

Dress in layers appropriate for the season and check the weather forecasts: Mornings tend to be windy and cooler than you might expect

Comfortable shoes for walking 2-3 miles on sandy gravel trails

Bring your own snacks and water.

Who Should Sign Up?

Anyone who wants to learn more about the seasonal photo opportunities available in one of the most beautiful state parks in Colorado.  If you are interested in submitting photos for the 2015 contest, you will learn about the philosophy o purposeful photography that drives the selection of photos for the annual calendar, and the value of photos that intrigue and tell a story through the flora, fauna, geology and other natural and historic features in the Park.

How to get there:  Google Roxborough State Park. Bring cash and give yourself time to pay the $7 parking fee (cash only – at the self-service kiosk by the park entrance) if you don’t have an annual pass. Parking is limited so car-pooling is advised.

Do not confuse Roxborough State Park with the Roxborough Park housing development. The State Park entrance gate is just past the fire station and you will soon find yourself on a dirt road.

What others think of George Jardine’s Workshops:

George is a great instructor!  He is very thorough in his presentations and I have learned a lot from his classes.  He is also very personable and very good about answering questions.”  Liz, Meetup member

“As a long-time Lightroom user, I began before I knew how to use it properly.  I only wish I could have had the opportunity to learn from George back then.  If so my data base of images would be in perfect shape! George has a distinct teaching style, I find his lessons relevant to my issues and easy to understand.  He’s really taken the mystery out of this robust tool.”

Hawk Quest – July 13

Front Range Photography Meetup is sponsoring a special photo shoot with Hawk Quest. We will have a total of 6-Birds of Prey in a natural setting to photograph.  The birds will include a Bald Eagle, Falcon, Owls and a few surprise birds.

We are limiting this session to 20 participates in order to give everyone the opportunity to capture the best photos.  (A well-known photo store offers this shoot to 50 people or more!)

Kin Quitugua, is a master falconer and long time environmental educator.  Kin knows how to handle the birds and will instruct us as to what his is doing, how the bird will fly in order for us to be able to capture that “money-shot.”

We will create small groups to photograph the various birds in separate areas of the park.  After a period of time, the group will move on to another location, rotating throughout the morning.

The final setup will be shooting a bird in flight.  All of us will gather at the location, the bird will fly in front of us.  Typically this is done multiple times to allow us a few practice shots!

If you would like to read more about Hawk Quest please visit their website.

Schedule:

7:30 – 8:00 for introductions and to gear up.  Hawk Quest requires each person to sign a waiver.
8:00 Begin Shooting at assigned station

11:00 end of session

11:00-11:30 Hawk Quest offers a table of various items for sale, T-shirts, books, etc. to help support their non-profit efforts.  You might want to do a little shopping so bring extra cash!

Bear Creek Lake Park ~ Map

This is a City of Lakewood Park, there is an admission fee of $7.  Carpooling is suggested.

After the Event – Brunch

Immediately following our shot, let’s meet at the Blue Cow Restaurant in Morrison for brunch.  It will be fun to hangout and chat about the morning and perhaps show our images!

Since we are keeping this group small, we need 20 people to fund the event.  There will be no refunds unless there is someone on the waiting list willing to take your spot.  Typically this event fills up fast, so don’t delay.

Registration is being taken on the Front Range Photography Meetup site.  You must be a member of Meetup to join the Front Range Photography group. (it’s free to join)

Photographing the Magical World of Wildlife – Weldon Lee

Weldon Lee & Diana

Weldon Lee & Diana

Many of us only dream about capturing the kind of images that Wildlife Photographer, Weldon Lee has done all his life!  His images of the wondrous world around us have helped both celebrate nature and protect it.

Weldon Lee is a well known and highly acclaimed wildlife photographer and author.  One look at his images and most will agree he is in the upper echelon of wildlife photographers!  It is with great pleasure that we welcome Weldon Lee as he presents, “Photographing the Magical World of Wildlife.”

Weldon Lee on “Photographing the Magical World of Wildlife”
Registration is $30 for 1/2 day seminar

Lone Tree Art Center Event Hall
May 18th from 3:00 – 6:00 p.m.
10075 Commons Street
Lone Tree, CO

Weldon’s own words, “Wildlife photography is more than capturing an image. It is the opportunity to preserve, on film, the drama of a fleeting moment in the life of a particular species. When I am fortunate enough to capture one of those moments, I begin to realize that I am touching something greater than life itself. Many wildlife species are being threatened with extinction. If they are to survive, then we, as humans must learn to coexist with them.  Photography and writing provide me with the platform I need to foster an appreciation for the uniqueness of my wild brothers and sisters which, hopefully will lead to their survival.”

Weldon Lee will be discussing his experiences in locating and tracking wild animals, what equipment he uses, plus how to create award winning images of wildlife.

Purchase your ticket online from the Lone Tree Arts Center.

Weldon Lee Biography

Weldon Lee travels around the globe to the world’s most exotic locations photo-graphing wildlife and capturing the essence of their personalities on film. He has a special way of communicating with animals and his images depict that relationship. His commitment to wildlife brings a fresh perspective to photography.

Weldon’s dramatic portrayals of wildlife in their natural surroundings provide viewers an intimate glimpse into their daily lives and is but one reason his images are popular among collectors. His work has been exhibited in the Denver Museum of Natural History and the Carnegie Museum of Natural History in Pittsburgh. A University of Northern Iowa photography professor ranks Weldon among the top five wildlife photographers in North America.

Weldon’s early work focused on wildlife in the Rocky Mountains. His first book, Watchable Birds of the Rocky Mountains, initially published in 1992, contains over 50 photographs depicting a cross-section of the avian species found throughout the Rocky Mountains. Erwin and Peggy Bauer, friends and lifelong wildlife photographers, had this to say about his second book, published in 1996, “No region of North America offers so many opportunities for wildlife photographers as the Rocky Mountains. No one has ever described its wildlife and captured their natural beauty so thoroughly as Weldon Lee in A Guide to Photographing Rocky Mountain Wildlife.”

Weldon’s images have appeared in numerous magazines including Mature Outlook, National Wildlife, Backpacker, National Parks Magazine, Bird Watcher’s Digest, Outdoor Photographer, Petersen’s PHOTOgraphic, and Nature Photographer. In addition, his photos illustrate text and natural history books by Macmillan, Westcliffe, Falcon Press, and Roberts Rinehart to name just a few. Weldon’s work has been featured on all the major television networks including ABC, CBS, and NBC.

In January, 1995, Weldon was elected Chair of the Education Committee of the North American Nature Photography (NANPA) and served three years in that capacity. In addition to being a charter NANPA member, he is also a member of Rock Mountain Outdoor Writers & Photographers and in 2007 received that organization’s Selected Works Award for Excellence in Photography. The American Bald Eagle Foundation honored Weldon as the 2010 Photographer of the Year.

Weldon is actively involved in wildlife preservation and is in the process of launching an environmental organization whose focus is for the protection of wildlife around the world.

“Wildlife photography, to me, is so much more than capturing an image,” explains Weldon. “It’s about connecting with my wild brothers and sisters, looking into their eyes, touching their spirit, and listening to what they have to say. It’s about moments like these.

“Unless we act now, many wildlife species face extinction during this century,” proclaims Weldon. “Hopefully, others will feel the passion I have for our wild brothers and sisters and it will motivate them to become involved in wildlife preservation. Maybe, just maybe, my photography and writing will be the tipping point necessary to make that happen.”

Henry David Thoreau wrote, “In wildness is the preservation of the world.” Let us cherish and protect those wild places and the creatures that inhabit them.”

TOGETHER, WE can save our wild brothers and sisters.

The time to act is NOW!

 

The Beautiful World of Close-Up Photography . . .Jeff Johnson Workshop

The Beautiful World of Close-Up Photography . . .

Photographing flowers close-up can be quite the challenge if not a mystery to some photographers. I will attempt to help de-mystify macro photography by covering proper equipment, exposure, depth-of-field, camera angles and backgrounds. You will be able to experiment with several different lighting set-ups including natural window light, studio flash and more.

8a-9a
A brief overview and demonstration of macro and close-up photography

9a-Noon
In the morning session I will have several lighting set-ups for you to photograph at. I’ll have different backgrounds for your pleasure as well. Macro photography can be quite rewarding once you get past the technical challenges and can just be in the creative state.

Noon-1p
Lunch on your own (we usually go to the same place and chat during lunch!) or if you prefer, pack a lunch.

1p-5p
The afternoon session you will work on your images with your computers with the tips and techniques that I use to create my style of fine art imagery. Some of the topics and techniques I plan to cover include:

Image pre-visualization
Composition
Adjustment layering and masking in Photoshop CS6
NIK Software
Topaz Labs
Texture overlays & Graphique Authority templates
Lots more as time permits

This workshop is limited to 20 attendees and is ONLY $99 for ALL day! You will also receive a certificate for a FREE 16×20 print from Nichols Photo Lab in Salt Lake City, UT. Nichols is one of my generous sponsors. I will also have plenty of Graphic Authority products on hand for sale.

Workshop to be held at the Lone Tree Civic Center.

Registration at Front Range Photography Meetup.

About Jeff Johnson

ARTIST STATEMENT:

Fine Art photography has been the very passion of my life. I’ve been fortunate to make a living doing what I genuinely love. From creating timeless portraits of children & families, to capturing the spirit & emotion of a wedding, this has truly been a rewarding
career. I couldn’t imagine doing anything else.??? Spending time in the “creative process” of capturing a fine art image, whether it is with Mother Nature or Mankind can be a very spiritual experience. I’ve realized that my deepest desire is in the challenge of creating a
visual impression of a mere moment in time. More than just an image of pleasing composition, but one that inspires, one that will spark an emotion and stimulate the viewer’s senses.

Each of my images has it’s own story infused with my emotions and memories. Yet my hope is that each image will evoke an emotion, trigger a memory or inspire you in some way that creates or defines your own stories of my imagery. I trust that as you enjoy each
image they become a part of your soul as they have mine.??????

“Images From The Soul” is more than a conceptual description of my fine art photographic collections. Each image is an expression of what I was feeling or experiencing at that moment, deep within my soul. Please enjoy my imagery at Soul Images Gallery and JJ Portrait Art.

BIO:
Having been a professional photographer for over 34 years Jeff has earned the PPA Degrees of Master of Photography, Photographic Craftsman and Certified Professional Photographer. Jeff has also been honored with three Fellowship Degrees from the
Professional Photographers of Colorado. He earned the title of Master Photographer of the Year in 2006, 2010 & 2011. He received the prestigious PPA National Award in 2011 for his continuous contribution and service to the photography industry. Jeff has
also been honored by several Loan Collection selections thru PPA. He was a two-term President for the Professional Photographers of Colorado and currently the Director of the Imaging Workshops of Colorado, a PPA Affiliate school.

You can spend a day or two, or even a week with Jeff on one of his photographic workshops and road trips at various locations around the US including Death Valley, Canyonlands, Yosemite and more. These workshops include hands-on photography and classroom opportunities. Find out more at Soul Road Trips.

Creative Processing in Adobe Lightroom with Dan Ballard

Change the way you think about image processing!!

Ansel Adams himself said that half of photography is in the processing. That is still true today, and one of least understood aspects of photography is how to correctly edit an image to make it shine. Internationally known travel and landscape photographer Dan Ballard has been using Abode Lightroom to edit his images since the first beta version was released 6 years ago. He now uses the program almost exclusively. Dan has a very unique approach to editing and we feel this technique will change the way you edit and think about image processing forever.

Dan always gets rave reviews about his classes and presentations and we guarantee you will go away inspired and with new tools to edit your images. This class will teach you how to create powerful, jaw dropping images and basics tips for managing and sorting files.
Dan will cover his workflow from camera to final output. Although the bulk of this class will focus on the artistic side of processing images, many tips and tricks about using the program will also be shared. This class is suitable for all levels of photographers and Lightroom users, from those who have not yet purchased the software to those that have been using it for many years. This class is also suitable for those who prefer Adobe Camera Raw as most of the editing tools are the same.

After the class you will be dying to go back and reprocess older images….who knows, you may find a hidden masterpiece!

You can always go to adobe.com and download the 30-day trial if you don’t own Lightroom and want to check it out so you have it for this workshop. Bring your laptop with LR installed and a few images you want to work on as we will be doing a lot of hands on editing. We may need some extra power strips, so if you have one, please bring it.
