Behind the Scenes 2018
with Tracy Sweeney, Anna Aromin, Catherine Lubbat, Mickie DeVries, Sophia Costa
JANUARY 2 - JANUARY 19, 2018
Have you ever wondered how some photographers create their magical images? Surely it must be an amazing location with gorgeous light and magical processing all wrapped up in one image, right? In this Breakout you’ll go behind the scenes with five photographers to see how they make extraordinary photographs with ordinary locations and light! In over ten hours of video, you’ll see how Tracy Sweeney, Anna Aromin, Catherine Lubbat, Mickie DeVries, and Sophia Costa create images from start to finish. You’ll see over seventy images– each image is accompanied by a video that includes the pullback, the straight out of camera image, and a processing video. As an added bonus, some of the videos include shooting footage and an opportunity to listen in as the presenters discuss their thoughts on composition, perspective and more– you’ll even see additional photographs and outtakes in some of the series!

The Language of Light: Understanding The Zone System for Digital Photography
with Kris + Lauren Penland
JANUARY 16 - JANUARY 26, 2018
Did you know that light has a language? It’s called The Zone System, and it’s not just for film! The Zone System is a perfect tool for any photographer (in any genre) who wants to grasp the advanced concepts of exposure. Learn the basics of The Zone System and how to use your camera’s meter to correctly expose in ANY lighting scenario including difficult light such as harsh light, back light, and low light. Then dive into creative exposures and how to expose based on your vision for a scene. You’ll see how Kris + Lauren control their exposures in difficult lighting scenarios, see the important role that mood plays in image-making and learn what to consider when making effective and intentional artistic decisions. Finally, you’ll see Kris + Lauren’s process for editing images and how The Zone System relates to the decisions they make in post-processing.
