Event Description:

Well-known photographer David Lee Myers will share his extensive experience through two intensive workshops at CCC in August. Throughout forty years of teaching college photography, instructor David Lee Myers has enjoyed helping people find their own voices to explore the joys and challenges of life.  In his decade at Clatsop Community College, he introduced a fully digital curriculum.  Myers has lived and photographed in the Columbia-Pacific since 1970.  His work may be seen at  

Digital Processing and Printing is a four-day workshop of total immersion in computer editing of photographs and other images.  All basic adjustments will be taught to maximize the effectiveness of your images and prepare them in different file formats for different purposes such as the web and printing, and actually printing.  Advanced techniques include adding text for posters or storytelling, high dynamic range, and panorama stitching.  Instructor Myers, who has edited and printed digitally since 1995 for photo printing, internet use and offset printing; will share his specialized knowledge for compositing images.  Effectiveness of specific images, and working to improve them, will be a major topic. 

For those desiring to put together a strong body of work, there will be time to select and sequence images.  Attendees will have significant work time on their own images, and their specific needs will be addressed as required.  The course is taught in the college’s Graphics Lab that is equipped with modern iMac computers and Photoshop, and a professional Epson photographic printer.  Skills taught on Photoshop will transfer nicely to most other image editing programs.
