Photographic workshops taught by Skip Schiel in the fall 2018 term at the Cambridge Center for Adult Education

An Introduction to Adobe Lightroom

An exploration of this powerful, relatively easy to learn photographic software. With it you can organize files, develop, print, and make them into a slide show, web page or book—and post to social media sites like Flickr and Facebook. This workshop requires laptops (not tablets or smart phones) with the latest version of Adobe Lightroom installed (Adobe provides a free downloadable trial copy for Apple or Window’s systems. Standalone version for $150.). Demonstrated on an Apple computer, commands easily converted to Windows' systems. Students must have basic knowledge of their computers.

Fall Light Workshop: Photographing Greater Gloucester

Work photographically with fall light, interpret and portray earth-oriented experiences, and reveal truths about the land through a combination of examples, exercises, coaching, and writing. BASIC PHOTO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED, preferably with manually operable equipment. Be prepared to walk in inclement weather. For the first session, bring your camera (thoroughly tested, batteries charged) and up to five photo PRINTS showing your interests, level, and experience.
