1.     How to pre-visualize a great photo
2.    How to create a narrative in your photos
3.    The importance of planning a shot
4.    Understanding the importance and fundamentals of great composition, lighting and posing.


Silva-5Why to choose what when: Lightroom or Photoshop

In this workshop, you will gain an understanding of the differences between Lightroom and Photoshop in order to determine why you would choose to work in one as opposed to the other. Denise will demonstrate how to use the powerful tools of LR Develop and PS Camera Raw to improve exposure, contract, saturation and clarity; make selective adjustments; and apply noise reduction, sharpening, B&W conversion, lens correction, and more!

IvanRothman-Hippo 1Practical Advice from an Experienced Wildlife Photographer
As a travel photographer Ivan Rothman will discuss what camera equipment and computer equipment to bring. And how to carry bulky camera
equipment onto a plane and avoid transporting it in checked luggage with the risks of lost or damaged equipment. He will give advice on clothing, sun protection, insect protection, where to go and who to go with. And health concerns for travel.

Ivan will share photographic tips for being in the field as a wildlife photographer.  What makes a good or better photograph. And how to organize images in Lightroom, Photoshop and other software programs. Plus how to share images – printed photos, slideshow, books.


Using his versatile and exciting career of over three decades Parish Kohanim will inspire through revelation.  He will share images and behind-the-scene anecdotes to reveal what it takes to put a major shoot together and execute it successfully.

Parish will share his philosophy about, and passion for, the art of photography.  And how true artists strive for perfection in any field. He encourages everyone to explore, experiment and enjoy, pushing themselves outside of their comfort zone.
