Here are some comments from our last few classes:

“Seth, sitting next to you for the four days was also an unforeseen gift where you were able to respond to my individual questions over the four days. I hope I didn’t ask too many questions. Your reflections also helped nudge and push me to a new level. Thanks again to you and Jamie for fabulous lunches, a dinner that should be highly rated by Michelin (they may not have enough stars) and extraordinary wine. “

“My experience with Seth and Jamie are among the strongest learning opportunities  that I have engaged in over the years. For me the real mark of success in a workshop is not the nuts and bolts knowledge that one gains but how a workshop changes one as a learner and impacts on one’s future efforts. This week with you two exceeded my expectations. I am a different photographer/artist then I was at the beginning of January. All of you have my utmost thanks and appreciation.”

“Seth & Jamie,
You have succeeded in creating the perfect workshop! Relaxed but intense learning opportunity! Being new to Lightroom my goal was to learn one new component per day that I understood & felt comfortable walking away with that knowledge. My goals have been exceeded. For once I felt like the cool geek living in a basement eating Cheetos!!!!!
Thank you for being progressive, opening your doors, sharing your family and teaching in a way that allows learning!
You have my highest respect!,
Oh ya, your artistry is pretty amazing too!”

“Seth and Jamie,
What a full four days! You are both great teachers and your book is very well written.
With zero background in photography, the first chapters gave me enough information to be able to follow the entire class and not get lost. Your sharing of both personal and professional stories intermixed with technical and creative information made the class very meaningful. It is easy to become intimidated in the search for professional growth and your presentations combined with your openness and true intentions put everyone in the class at ease. I look forward to applying your teachings in my already full workflow:)”

“This has a terrific experience.  I accomplished what I was after and took away some “gems”, some of them outside of the main topic, that I didn’t expect.  Thank you for a great week.”

“Dear Seth and Jamie,
THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!!!!!

This workshop far exceeded my expectations! The agenda for the four days was logically organized and the spiral review for each module was essential.

I truly appreciated your “tag team” model. You each bring such a wealth of experience and skill. The “walk round the table” one to one assistance was most helpful for me (as I am sure it was for everyone in the group) as it was truly specific and differentiated for each of us. I also like the “mini quiz” experiences. It helped me cement the knowledge that I was trying to apply each day.

I came with one expectation – that my LR.cat catalog would be correctly organized and easily accessible by Friday! I have that and way more – including a trip to Antarctica in 2016!!! I now understand how the catalog works as well as how to correctly import old and new images.

I feel confident and “more competent” with the development module. Thank you for your fun and relaxing instruction and leadership that did not ever intimidate but always challenged me to improve my skills and understanding!! “

“Seth and Jamie,

This was above and beyond the knowledge I was hoping to receive, thank you for educating me”

”  Thank you for putting together  the best photography workshop I’ve ever attended.  What I really admired about it was that you could have sat up there and blown us away with the greatest images of your career but you chose to educate us all.
Thanks again. “

“Dear Seth and Jamie,

As many people do at this time of the year, I’m looking back to 2014 and what happened to me, what experiences I was allowed to make. I came to the conclusion that this one week in your legendary workshop, was a life changing experience. I learned so much in these days, not just about photography & lightroom but also about myself. Finally you gave me the confidence to give (semi-)professionalism a chance, so I will build up my portrait business next year. ”

D65’s Lightroom Workbook
Whats New In Lightroom 6
LR6coverb;log
We always have loved Lightroom and the good news is that we still love Lightroom but we decided not to write a book on LR6 because while there was a fair amount of work under the engine improving the application, it is really pretty thin in terms of new features and those are covered in this Pdf which you can download for free
http://www.d-65.com/2015_lightroom6.html
Our primary book remains D-65’s Lightroom Workbook Workflow, Not Workslow in Lightroom 4. This is still our Bible and outlines our complete workflow in detail. Soft cover:

A Body of Work

February 14th, 2015 |  by No comments

Almost any photographer can produce 10 to 20 really good images but that in itself, may no longer be enough to gain them the recognition that will take their craft further. Developing a voice or a style and eventually developing a successful body of work may help provide you with the edge to take your work to the next level.

CAN YOU DESCRIBE YOUR OWN WORK OR STYLE?

20140407_chefchaouen_0111If you are a painter there are words to describe the style of painting that very clearly communicates the type of work you produce such as Impressionism, Realism, Photorealism, Fauvism, Surrealism. If you work in ceramics, or glass or just about any form of art other than photography the outside world gets a pretty good idea about your art. Yet, when it comes to photography, most folks just call themselves a photographer, which leaves the door wide open for interpretation. When I say that I am a photographer, I am routinely asked if I do weddings and when I say no, I am asked if I do wildlife and when I say sometimes, they are already confused. When I add in that I also photograph people and landscapes and produce commercial work for magazines, and fine art for galleries they are clearly even more confused.

Lightroom Develop Tip
Did you know?
The Alt (Option) Key has many specialized uses in the Develop Module. Here I am using The Alt (Option) in the Noise Reduction panel to better see the Luminance, Detail and Contrast sliders. Using Alt (Option) for removing noise converts the image into a black and white image so you can see the effect of the adjustments more clearly. You can also use Alt (Option) for Sharpening, Lens Corrections with the Color Tab as well as for the Exposure, Highlights, Whites, Shadows and Blacks.

In our 4-day intense workshop, D-65 will teach you detailed workflow utilizing the 7 modules of Lightroom, to vastly improve your digital asset management, processing and image delivery skills.

You’ll learn the fundamentals of Lightroom and become an expert in keeping every image you shoot organized, edited and archived through keywording, metadata and collections.

Art of Creativity Workshop

January 29th, 2015 |  by No comments

Folks who have taken our Art of Creativity Class are typically asked by others if they shot good pictures?They are surprised when they learn that the person never actually shot a photograph during the workshop. How can one take a photography workshop and not shoot?

The Art of Creativity

The Art of Creativity

We teach two photography workshops that do not incorporate shooting. The Art of Creativity and The Art of Processing are very rewarding to teach and our participants take their work to new levels yet they don’t actually shoot.  So what exactly do we do in our program? We just finished teaching the Art of Creativity and below are just some of the topics we covered with the students. We spend the majority of our time on creative exercises to develop and enhance a personal distinct vision.

Picking words from the back of tickets to give new ideas

Picking words from the back of tickets to give new ideas

There are in depth reviews of work which include things like every person supplying 10 ideas to further develop a body of work. This in itself gives each participant more than 100 ideas. Some of the topics we covered were:

 

  • Describing your vision
  • Elevator Pitch
  • Keywords for yourself and your images   
  • Your photographic influences
  • Guiding Questions
  • Titles For A Body Of WorkWhat’s missing? 
  • How could you add something to make “it” more complete/successful?
  • What could you add to a complete body of work to extend it?    
 

It is beyond rewarding as a teacher when you can get students to find major life answers to questions that connect to their work. Tears, hugs and laughter are all experiences that we share as a group.

 

It is tradition for creativity to extend to food and wine

Ironically, when deciding on a workshop many people simply assume that they are already creative and they really are only interested processing. If we look at the work of many of the worlds respected photographers both living and dead they all had a very distinctive style and voice. It is not hard to know a Jay Maisel photograph or Greg Gorman, Eric Meola, or John Paul Caponigro. The same is true of Ansel Adams, Henri Cartier-Bresson and just about every other well known photographer. Their signature goes well beyond the physical one on the print. The entire image becomes a signature and this is what we teach in this workshop which just about every photographer finds beneficial.

 

In the end we ask all the students to rate various factors of the workshop on a scale of 1- 10.  It is truly humbling and rewarding to to review our own grades and see that we with with a possibility of 60 from each of 10 students our lowest grade was a 53 and 8 students gave us 60. This gives us a average score of 58.7 in satisfaction and expectations from a possible 60.

 

Our next Art of Creativity Workshop has only one space left and it is August 6-9 in Maine.
