Photographic Workshop in Cornwall, ENGLAND
with Jean Fogelberg and Patrisha McLean

SEPTEMBER 18th - 27th, 2017

This workshop is limited to 14 participants.


A photographic workshop for beginner and intermediate photographers who want to take their travel photography and Photoshop© skills to the next level.

Patrisha McLean will guide you through photographing people on your travels, confronting your fears of approaching strangers, and then getting beyond snapshots to bring some magic to your portraits. You will learn how to decide who you want to photograph, how to approach them and get their permission, and how to direct them to the best location and light. As we explore magnificent Cornwall, Patrisha will instruct you in photographing people in posed and candid situations and in various lighting conditions. She will also discuss how to take more interesting photos of every subject you are drawn to, from food to flowers and landscapes, by applying a few simple principles.

Jean Fogelberg will instruct the group in post-processing your photos with Adobe Photoshop®, enabling you to fine tune your new photographs and get special effects. Topics covered will include cropping for composition, fine tuning exposure and color, converting images to black and white and HDR, retouching faces, adding vignettes, correcting lens distortion, and adding a watermark. For the first three mornings, Jean will teach the beginner digital photographers in the group about the Aperture, Shutter Speed, ISO, and White Balance settings on your DSLR camera and how they affect your images.





Patrisha McLean is a writer and photographer specializing in portraits of children. Her work has been exhibited in galleries and museums across the country, including the Caldbeck Gallery and Center for Maine Contemporary Art in Rockland and the Silver Eye Gallery in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Her photographs are in the permanent collections of the Farnsworth Museum and Portland Museum of Art.

   

Patrisha teaches The Art of Photographing Children at the Maine Media Workshops and is the author of All Fall Down, a biography of the child actor Brandon deWilde, and two books of portraits accompanied by stories: My Island, published in 2015, and Maine Street. www.patrishamclean.com

 



Jean Fogelberg is a photographer, fine artist, fabric designer, and musician who enjoys teaching as much as creating. She has shown in galleries throughout the Southwest and her paintings and photographs hang in personal collections throughout the world.

Day trips to amazing locations, local events, and shopping will keep our feet on the ground. On the days off there will be plenty of shopping opportunities or a chance to go to the beach. We can also arrange trips to some of the other renowned and mystical spots in the area.
