1st Open Competition Scavenger Hunt

If you could not make it to the Serenbe Photography Center last Saturday -- you missed a great event.  Approximately 50 photographers from the metro Atlanta area arrived with empty memory cards and full batteries ready to tackle the list of six topics.  Shooting began at 9:15 and continued steady until lunch time.  The photographers returned to the center and spent the next hour or so editing their work. 

After editing the individuals or teams submitted one photo per category to the judges.  Then the photographers were off for a great lunch in Serenbe.  The awards and prizes were given out during a slideshow of the winning images and all submitted photos. 

To be sure that you get in on this next time around, sign up for email updates, subscribe to this blog, follow Serenbe Photography Center on Twitter, and like us on Facebook.

Spirits in the Landscape

July 9, 2011 1-8pm

Working with Serenbe Playhouse actors and other models in costume, Robin Davis leads a wonderful exploration of the narrative portrait, creating images that look much like paintings and illustrations.

$165 includes seating at the performance; $150 without performance seating

Robin Davis is known for her elegant and highly creative and on location portraits.  Robin will show how depth of field, natural light blended with flash, rear-curtain flash, and many other basic camera techniques can be used to create mood and mystery.  Robin also shows how to direct models most effectively, especially in classic sculptural poses.  Each participant will have the opportunity to work directly with professional models and actors to create and capture their vision of character and story.

Photoshop Workshop

Photoshop with David Goldsmith
June 26
Session 1 -- 9am to noon
Session 2  -- 1pm to 4pm
$65 per session; $125 for both

Explore Adobe Photoshop's capabilities to modify and edit digital photographs.  Learn how to use layers, channels, masks, and other techniques.  Adjust the contrast, brightness, tonality, color and all other visual parameters of the creative image. 

Session 1 is designed for new users.  This will center on the basic tools -- what they do and what you can do with them.  The second session is for those more advanced users -- but open to all.  In this session you will explore more advanced techniques for editing and enhancing photographs.

Please bring a laptop computer -- either Mac or PC and Photoshop (preferable CS4 or CS5).

David Goldsmith came to Atlanta in 1963 to join the Chemistry Department at Emory University.  He has been an active photographer since childhood and is frequently asked how an early interest and education in art could lead to a career in science.  For David the connection has always been a natural one -- organic chemistry is a science that employs a graphical language and is based in architectural and three-dimensional concepts.
