Photography in Paradise

peeking from behind the sensor

Adobe was back in San Diego with the CreateNow-Camp on March 16 & 17 and was a huge event. It was a chance to improve your technique with adobe products that you already use or try new products that you have always wondered about. The two day event with 18 instructors and 50 classes were both hands on and lecture format at a price that can’t be beat.

The cost was only $29 for a single day or $49 for two days and they both include lunch. It took place at San City College in down town San Diego in the new Creative Arts Campus. A very well designed facility with state of the art computers an class rooms.

Adobe evangelist Jason Levine & Adobe ACP Kevin Stohlmeyer the keynote speakers. If you missed this one will have to wait until next year for the next one.

 

I presented three class on:

Camera System Calibration in the digital world: Lee Peterson showed attendees that just because you have moved into the digital world does not mean you can escape the need to test your equipment. “Fixing it in Photoshop” is only marginally better than trying to fix it in a dark room. In this session, I covered methods to calibrate your camera and what is sensor noise and how sensor size and lens resolution need to be address if you what to get the best images possible. The classes were full and everyone commented that they gained an immense amount of information.

It is difficult to remember it all so I will post some white papers covering mot of the lectures here in the blog a little while later as time permits. Stay tuned and keep checking back to get this information.
