We'll shoot in and around Croton-on-Hudson, NY, where I run my Rick's Backyard Workshops. We'll process our images and experiment with different creative effects.

We'll also learn how to paint with light and create dramatic black-and-white portraits.

I teach artistic imaging on all my workshops, but this workshop will focus more on processing images in Photoshop and using creative plug-ins. So you'll need your laptop, Photoshop and the following plug-ins: Nik Collection by Google, Topaz Adjust, Topaz Perfectly Clear and Photomatix by HDR Soft. Info on these plug-ins on my Save on Plug-ins page.

Of course you can also use Lightroom if you are skilled at importing and exporting images to plug-ins and back. This is not a computer class. :-)

I am looking at dates for Spring 2014. Shoot me an email if you are interested in joining a small, fun group for a creative weekend. Private shooting/processing lessons in Croton-on-Hudson are also available. Private on-line portfolio reviews  - my Tough Love sessions - are also available.

Stay tuned for info, dates and cost.
