Creative Rural Photography: A Mobile Adventure Workshop With Sony Artisan Caroline Jensen

Sony Artisan Caroline Jensen will take you off the beaten path for this workshop on Creative Rural Photography with Maine Media and sponsored by Sony. Throughout the week of June 9-15, the workshop will cover:

  • How to use your point and shoot cameras for capturing rural scenes. Caroline uses a Sony super-zoom, point and shoot. Mirrorless and DSLR cameras are welcome, but editing will focus on mobile platforms: phone or iPad.

  • How to break down the shooting process for easy editing later: shooting plates for backgrounds and skies as well as composition and lighting considerations.

  • How to creatively visualize your image in your mind using the elements you shot.

  • How to pair your vision with apps and mobile programs that bring your images to life.

  • The main themes of editing that can be paired with existing apps and be ready for apps yet to come: exposure and light manipulation, dodging and burning, compositing, using and/or merging layers, texture enhancement, removing unwanted objects, color manipulation, problem-solving techniques, printing considerations, digital painting, day to night transformations, etc.

  • The ethics of rural street photography.

  • How this sort of work is broadly suitable for print as thoughtful gifts or more formal venues, such as galleries or exhibitions.
