One of the biggest frustrations with the modern digital workflows is getting consistency across all our of devices. Every camera, monitor and printer seems to have a mind of its own when it come to color. In this workshop, we will focus on how to get the most out of our color management workflow.  We will start with a quick overview of some of the basics of color theory about how and why we see colors and respond to colors the way we do. Then we will talk about how to use the tools and technologies to create a consistent color managed workflow so that all our images come out as expected on both the screen and in print. Finally, we will cover some the biggest issues photographers run across with their images and how to correct those issues.  It doesn't matter if you are color or black and white photographer, if you want to get the most from your images you will want to make sure that your color management is the best it can be.

Where:  Location will be disclosed by Brian after payment at the conference; it will depend on the weather.  Gear Needed:  Walking shoes as appropriate for weather; FIELD TRIP WILL HAPPEN EVEN IN THE RAIN.

Gear Needed: Camera with 30-second exposure or bulb mode, tripod. Extra battery and disposable rain cover recommended.  Walking shoes as appropriate for the weather.

A location that has been photographed a million times during daylight hours takes on a whole new personality when the sun goes down and the cities lights come up. Light of differing colors plays off objects that during the day seem to be mundane to create surreal pallets that can please and even trick the eye. Join photographer Brian Leary for an evening in Seattle to see how photography, when most people have already put their cameras away, can expand your creativity and teach you quite a bit about your daytime photography, too. The exact location will be announced at the NWCCC conference to the participants. You will need appropriate clothing for the weather that evening, a tripod, a camera with the ability to take a 30-second exposure (often represented on the camera’s screen as 30”) and your widestangle lens. Although you may find other lenses useful during the evening, you will probably find the widest you have on your camera the best choice.
