Lecture on Zoom: 11am – 12:30pm
Photo Scavenger Hunt/Photo Walk: 12:30-4pm
Post Processing Session on Zoom: 4– 5pm
Join photographer and photo-educator Natasha Calzatti as she shares tips for transforming your photos from ordinary to extraordinary without being tied to your computer. This fun and informative workshop will teach you the skills you need to turn the camera that’s always with you into a powerful photography tool.
Practice seeing versus looking when you put into practice what you learned during the lecture. Natasha will ask you to go out on a photowalk and search for establishing shots to environmental portraits in a photo scavenger hunt exploration. After the photo scavenger hunt you will return for a post processing session. Natasha will combine in-depth instruction with hands-on practice so that you can make your best photos. You will leave with new skills, insider tips, and photo editing techniques using Lightroom for mobile on the go and Photoshop on the iPad and other Apps. Specifically, you’ll learn how to:
- Work with a range of iPhone cameras (in Raw)
- Improving composition, color, and exposure
- Making selective edits to emphasize important elements of your photo
- Retouching and compositing techniques
- Manage and edit your images with different Apps, develop your own personal look and feel
- Share your images with clients, family, friends, and more broadly on social media
What to Have During Class: Have your iPhone and/or iPad available during the lecture. We will email information about which apps to load.
Upon receiving her BFA in Photography from Otis Parsons School of Design, Natasha Calzatti, a photographer and digital retoucher, went on to shoot award-winning photography for THE NEW YORK TIMES, NEWSWEEK, PEOPLE and VIBE, and has been syndicated internationally. Her work is represented in many private collections and has been shown publicly in Los Angeles and more recently in Portland, Oregon’s Black Box Gallery, June 2012. Simultaneous to her photography career, Natasha found herself at the cutting edge of imaging as it transitioned from the chemical darkroom to the digital darkroom where her abilities became increasingly in demand for magazine clients TV Guide, Marie Claire, Time Magazine, The Source, and Vibe as well as advertising clients Midas, MCI and Dreyfus. In 2011, Ms. Calzatti was invited to The Getty Center to share her behind the camera experiences of Cuba as she presented an in-gallery exploration of A Revolutionary Project: Cuba from Walker Evans to Now. Today Ms. Calzatti divides her time between shooting assignments and lecturing on digital imaging issues both in U.S and abroad.
