BC Workshop: Environmental Portraiture and Adobe Lightroom
July 9-13, 2012 Metchosin (near Victoria) BC Canada
This course is an exploration of environmental portraiture; capturing people in their own habitat; where the setting is part of the story; and an introduction to Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3/4, the editing tool of choice for many photographers. Students will photograph subjects in a variety of settings, and then learn to bring out the best in their images through artful but nuanced digital editing.
In 1984 a group of dedicated artists formed and incorporated the Metchosin International Summer School of the Arts (MISSA). That year, five two-week courses were offered. Over the years we have expanded our course selection. The school has developed an excellent reputation for bringing in internationally acclaimed artists and our workshops have expanded from five courses and 53 participants the first summer to over 40 workshops with more than 400 students each year from around North America and as far away as Israel, Brazil and Mexico.
