Berkeley Art Works Digital Photography Workshop

Workshop: Saturday September 21, 1-4pm. Fee: $45. Pre-registration is required.

The Berkeley Art Works will present a workshop for digital photographers who want to grow beyond the “point and shoot” stage and who want to learn how to get the best results for the images out of their digital cameras. Adobe Lightroom provides a combination of cutting edge technology and ease of use in an affordable software package. Photoshop Elements, the “Little Brother” of the professional version of Photoshop is still a powerful tool capable of serious work.

Photographer Rip Smith will demonstrate the power of Adobe Lightroom for digital image adjustments and discuss using Raw format vs Jpeg format and the advantages of each. Also included in this workshop will be a demonstration of a number of advanced editing techniques using Adobe Photoshop Elements. If possible (but not required), students should bring a laptop computer with the software installed and have some image files available to work with during the workshop. (Free 30-day trial versions of both programs are available by download from the web site.)

Rip Smith is an award-winning fine art and architectural photographer whose work has been exhibited nationally and regionally. He is also a member of the Berkeley Art Works “Artists At The Works” Gallery group.

The Berkeley Art Works is a project of the Berkeley Arts Council and is located at 116 North Queen Street in Martinsburg. Online registration is available here on the Berkeley Art Works web site.  For more information email or call 304-620-7277.
