Follow the Light – Charleston Spring Photo Workshop

I arrived home on Saturday from the Charleston Workshop in time to enjoy the holiday weekend with family and friends.

The weather and shooting conditions were great in Charleston and everyone captured some great images. Over the course of the workshop I could see the students grasp a better understanding of how their cameras function, which will allow them to capture better images in the field.

More important than camera functions is the understanding of Composition and use of natural Light to capture an image. By the end of the workshop I was glad to see every one had a better understand of composition and how to use natural light to capture their images.     

When we were not shooting or taking time to exploring Old Charleston we were able to go over some of  the basics photographic software used in processing images.  There are many great programs to choose from to process your images. My preference has always been to open my RAW images in Camera Raw in the Photoshop CS5 or Elements 10 programs for a few basic adjustments. After the basic adjustments I use Nik software to fine tune my images.

About europeanimages

Light is both the photographer's palette and brush. Harnessing available light is a skill learned through the study of technical theory and then applying it in the field. My goal as a photographer is to search out the images that interest me artistically, then once I have found the essence of that place I use composition and light to enhance the images.
