Coming up this September is the Seattle return of my popular one-day photography workshop “Creative Photograph With Any Camera“.

This one-day photography workshop teaches emerging and experienced photographers how to greatly improve their photography experience and their images. Because today’s cameras have creative options, those with compact cameras are also welcome to attend. I’ll cover the best ways to use AUTO and Program modes, and how to use Aperture, Speed and ISO settings when you need greater image control.

Through an inspiring presentation of finding, seeing, composition, position and settings, participants learn how to use their cameras, tune their senses and sharpen skills. Demonstrations, discussions, critiques, essential tips and practice shooting at nearby Seattle Center will anchor the learning. For this time only, it’s just $69., and boxed lunch is included. Seats are limited and will fill.

Please share this on Facebook and with any Seattle-area photography enthusiast you like.

My October workshop “Autumn Photography and Creativity in Lightroom” is just around the corner and will immerse twelve eager souls in the wonders of Maine’s Fall color and the power of Adobe Lightroom 5.

Lightroom LR logo iconThere is no better place to spend a week in colorful October than mid-coastal Maine. We shoot at several great locations (including a few of my favorite secret ones) and return to our lab to edit, interactively critique and learn all about organizing, tracking, developing RAW captures and creating slideshows and web galleries from within the awesome Adobe Lightroom 5. Share yourself, learn from others and enjoy the lively campus with us this Fall. Oh, and our chef’s authentic lobster (or steak) dinner caps the week with our festive slideshow. It’s  “gonna be wicked good,” as they say in Maine.

Please share this on Facebook and with any photography enthusiast you know who loves color and wants to really learn the best of Lightroom 5.

Here’s a favorite image for your use as a photographic Desktop Wallpaper or Screen Saver.

It’s a photograph called “Magnolia Morning” that I made at a favorite place near where I live.

To download this photograph, just click the image below, and it opens to a new window. Right-click and download the full-sized 1920 x 1280- pixel wide-screen image. Once downloaded to your computer, navigate to your Desktop and Screen-saver control panel (or System Preferences, Mac) and select this guaranteed virus-free image file to become your desktop.

If you like these, let me know and I’ll upload more wallpapers to enjoy.

I teach this B+W conversion and split-toning technique in my Maine workshop, and add in this texturing and luminance-masking process in all of my Photoshop-based workshops.
