The Art of Light Digital Imaging Workshops at Ellington School of the Arts


This series of imaging workshops will begin in the Fall of 2017 and conclude in the Summer of 2018. This workshop series is four different classes with two classes per month. Each course is two sessions which are two hours long. The first cycle of workshops will be completed, in March of 2018.

On November, 30 2017, I’ll be conducting the last beta class. This is to work out bugs and make a bunch of mistakes. I have seven seats for the beta class with the 27 inch, 4K displays iMac. If you're willing to bring a laptop/mobile device, there're seven more seats. Plus, I'll demo using your mobile device with the Adobe Lightroom and Google Snapseed mobile apps. All sessions are at the newly renovated Duke Ellington School of the Arts, in the Museum Studies Department's Imaging Lab facilities.

This course is for people new to photography, whether the participant is using a DSLR, compact camera, or their phone’s camera. The photographic fundamentals of selecting a scene, composing the subject, controlling light, and processing the image for final output are the same. Class participants can bring their laptops to class for demos of best practices for organizing their images using the Lightroom photography app.


In this workshop, students will be introduced to the essentials of working with Adobe Photoshop. Whether you’re a photographer wanting to get more from their images or an artist needing to process their images for a variety of final uses, this workshop will make Photoshop familiar and comfortable.


To get the most out of Photoshop or Lightroom, you must first understand “why” you are using the tool in the first place. In this workshop students will go beyond the basics of Photoshop to explore digital image making, for social media use and printing. This workshop will focus on the utilitarian aspects of image making, image preparation, and design.


Artists and photographers are realizing that getting their digital vision off the monitor and onto a sheet of paper is essential. This Fine Art Digital Printing workshop offers advanced hands-on experience in the digital photo lab using Adobe Photoshop and Epson inkjet printers. Students will learn what makes a great print as the workshop explores interpreting traditional photographic language and practice with digital tools.

Workshop students will take a sophisticated exploration `of the fundamentals of the digital imaging process, a recommended workflow, and a variety of techniques and tools to broaden their relationship with making photographic imagery. Plus students will start the process of creating their print portfolio.
