Course #CT01 Lisa Cuchara
High and extended dynamic range photography – not something that every artist does. But, if you're looking to expand your talent and skills, then this is your opportunity! We will go on location, exploring a site that has incredible texture and detail. Spend some time on a photo shoot and then process the images later the same day. You'll learn the right camera set up, explore how to take the best photos, and then discuss the post-processing steps in detail. Come prepared for an educational, fun-filled day as you master HDR! 
Course Date: Wednesday, May 18, 2016 Course Hours: 10am - 5pm
Items to Bring: Camera and tripod image editing session - watch me and follow along on the screen. You may also bring your laptop and practice editing. $10 admission fee for the shooting location.

Course #CT02 Lisa Cuchara 
Editing isn't just a few key-clicks and retouches. To do it well takes skill, talent, and knowledge so that your photos look natural and real. In this class, you'll combine creativity with technical expertise as you learn to edit your images.   Explore layers and masks. Discover how applying textures can enhance your images. Delve into blend modes, as well as artistic uses for soft light, multiply, lighten and screen modes.  Best of all, this class is hands-on! Bring your camera to shoot some images (textures) in the morning. Then, you'll hear Lisa Cuchara's engaging presentation on how to edit, and then you'll start doing it yourself! Please bring a few images of your own so you can continue practicing in the afternoon. Take your creativity and skills to the next level – your clients will love you for it!
