Sports Photography Workshop: Softball

June 9th, 2014

With Scott Mumphrey

Have you ever wanted to get those stopped action photos and they turn out either blurry, out of focus, or the subject is too dark? Well, this is the class for you. In this workshop we will focus on the proper techniques used in photographing sports & action both in daylight and lowlight situations. Topics discussed will include shutter and aperture, metering, ISO, white balance, focus modes and drive choices. Composition is a very important factor when photographing high speed action shots as well. In addition, and depending on the camera, there are different crop factors to consider along with their correlation to certain lens focal lengths. We will also examine various lenses and their strengths and weaknesses along with when and where to properly use them. Keep in mind, there are also plenty of accessories available for making your experience a little easier, and there will be a demonstration explaining the advantages they provide.

Those attending will need to bring their DSLR or mirror-less cameras and lens to the workshop. We will meet and will spend an hour discussing settings, equipment used and strategy before we head over to the athletic facility. Make sure to bring a few dollars as this facility has a fee to get in. You are also free to bring a monopod or any accessories you feel could be useful in the photographing process. Workshop limited to 12 students. Class is one hour of classroom and two hours of shooting a sporting event.

Adobe Lightroom at the JCC

June 21st, 2014

With Derek Martin

Taking the photo is only half of creating great photography. If you want to show your work at its best you'll need a good post-editing workflow to help you out. This class will take you through possibly the best workflow and editing product on the market for serious photographers: Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. Unlike regular Photoshop, Lightroom is tailored specifically to the needs of a working photographer, with a powerful library and editing system designed to make your photos look better and help you organize and store them all too.

In this three hour class we'll take you through the basics of getting started with Lightroom. The class is primarily aimed at the current processing version used in Lightroom 4 and 5, but we'll also talk briefly about things that were different in Lightroom 3 if you're still using that. Topics covered will include the Library module, the Develop module and what all the tools do; importing, exporting, tagging, and managing branding.

You should bring your laptop and charger cord (outlets will be provided), as well as a copy of Lightroom. If you do not yet own Lightroom, you can download the latest version as a free trial for 30 days from Adobe here: Adobe Photoshop Lightroom

Note: This class only covers Lightroom, and not traditional Photoshop.

HDR at the JCC

July 23rd, 2014

With Jeff Johansen

This introductory course will help you to understand the art of High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography and how to go about creating bright and colorful images by combining multiple exposures of the same subject or scene. You will learn the process of how to properly bracket your exposure and shoot images suitable to process as High Dynamic Range and discover how to make HDR imagery both in your camera as well as via post processing in Photoshop, etc. A selection of scenes with both extreme highlights and dark shadows will be shown, followed by the post production process to create images true to what the human eye perceives -and- OZ-like surrealistic and painterly scenes.

Photography as art (Photo Art) will also be discussed and demonstrated including ways to turn your HDR and non-HDR images into artistic expressions to further your own photographic vision.

This is a fun and dynamic course and those wishing to attend are encouraged to bring their HDR questions to the class as well as send in any images ahead of the class to the instructor; student created HDR or images potentially seen by the student as a good candidate for HDR treatment. The instructor will endeavor to make comments and suggestions on a select number of images as well as process some in class, as time allows. These need to be sent in at least 3 days ahead of the class date. Prints for comments can be brought in the evening of the class.

Speedlighting class

August 26th - September 2nd, 2014

With John Scott

2 week class!

Speedlighting - A portable and capable lighting solution.
How to get the most out of your hot shoe flash.
The simple truth is that ambient lit environments are not always conducive to making a quality image. Sometimes the light is plain, flat, back lit, terrible color, just ugly, or maybe it needs a little push to make it visually interesting. In this class we will discuss and work with multiple lighting styles in different environments and demonstrate how to create desirable photographs. I will show you how to make the most of using your speedlight on top of your camera and when it is necessary to move it away from the camera to better control your lighting.

The first session will cover the following:

  • on camera - creative techniques with and without simple modifiers
  • off camera lighting - from one to many flashes
  • best mods for each lighting situation
  • fill flash - so it doesn't look like a "flash photo"
  • indoor and outdoor environments

 

The second session is a review and image critique of pictures from the prior week and covers more advanced topics like controlling color between your hot shoe flashes and ambient environments.

1st session - August 26th, 2014 6:30-9:30PM
2nd session - September 2nd, 2014 6:30-9:30PM

This class will be held at:
Palm Studios
9800 Association Ct. Indianapolis, IN 46280 (Just east of 96th & Keystone)

Please bring your camera, memory cards and speedlight(s). Remember to charge your batteries!

HDR - A New Art Form

September 9th, 2014

With Jeff Johansen

This introductory course will help you to understand the art of High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography and how to go about creating bright and colorful images by combining multiple exposures of the same subject or scene. You will learn the process of how to properly bracket your exposure and shoot images suitable to process as High Dynamic Range and discover how to make HDR imagery both in your camera as well as via post processing in Photoshop, etc. A selection of scenes with both extreme highlights and dark shadows will be shown, followed by the post production process to create images true to what the human eye perceives -and- OZ-like surrealistic and painterly scenes.

Photography as art (Photo Art) will also be discussed and demonstrated including ways to turn your HDR and non-HDR images into artistic expressions to further your own photographic vision.

This is a fun and dynamic course and those wishing to attend are encouraged to bring their HDR questions to the class as well as send in any images ahead of the class to the instructor; student created HDR or images potentially seen by the student as a good candidate for HDR treatment. The instructor will endeavor to make comments and suggestions on a select number of images as well as process some in class, as time allows. These need to be sent in at least 3 days ahead of the class date. Prints for comments can be brought in the evening of the class.

Damon Butler

I grew up enjoying the arts, and throughout high school discovered a hidden talent for manipulating and creating art within Photoshop. In 2006 I applied to Ball State University's graphic arts department to pursue a career in graphic design. My passion for images stemmed from many hours behind the screen exacting over every detail until my original vision had become the end result. As time progressed I grew tired of countless hours sitting in front of a computer screen and realized that my creativity was being stifled. In 2008, my weariness of the screen led to my decision to leave the graphic design field and become more involved in the photographic process. Learning photography allowed me to shift my primary focus from being behind a computer to being behind the camera. My previous Photoshop experience gave me insight into pre-visualizing an image in a whole new manner, allowing full control over the entire process.

Shooting photos in the dark seems so unnatural when it comes to photography, an art form that is literally derived from light. This seemingly unexplored realm of night photography intrigued me for its juxtaposition with the average daylight photography that everyone is used to seeing. After experimenting with long exposures on 35mm film I had accidentally walked across one frame with my headlamp turned on. This created a wavelike line so unique that I have devoted my time to finding new ways of using light. Since then my photos always seem to be landscapes at night, using the cover of darkness to introduce my own lighting techniques within the area. Many people refer to this style as “light painting” or “light writing”, however I like to refer to my style as “light sculpting” because it requires operator to use the light in a 3-dimensional way to achieve depth in the photo. Since parting with graphic arts, my photographic knowledge and technique have grown each year helping me find my “photographic voice” and furthering my passion for photography as an art form.

Jennifer Hall

I am a fine art photographer. I have been studying and working with cameras since 2006. I work with the analog darkroom process as well as digital photography. As an artist, I am interested in exploring relationships between objects and human nature through comparisons and interactions of these two concepts. I enjoy shooting still lives and human subjects. I also develop film and make black and white prints in the darkroom. I love being behind the digital camera for weddings, engagement sessions, senior portraits and family portraits. Using the digital camera artistically, I also have the ability to manipulate images in Photoshop. I have a working knowledge of editing for artistic goals and for pleasing portrait images. I received my B.F.A. in photography from Ball State University in May 2011. During my time at Ball State, I had the privilege to show my work in several shows hosted by the university, community galleries and Mid-West shows. Recently, in 2013, I exhibited my work in “Lost and Found” at the Darkroom Gallery in Vermont.

Walt Kuhn

I bought my first camera a age 8. After working for my high school and college yearbook staff I never thought I would make a living in photography. 23 years later I still get excited with every new day and the photographic challenges it brings. Although digital has changed the photography business, I like it because it put a lot of the creative control back in the hands of the photographer. Specializing in portrait and sports photography those creative controls have never been more in demand. I have covered the last 22 Indy 500’s as well as the IndyCar series, Brickyard 400’s, Formula One, Moto GP as well as football, and basketball games throughout Indianapolis. But I have found that being my harshest critic and demanding the best has constantly pushed me to improve my work. Always looking for the unique angle has taught me that there is more than one perspective even from a place like the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The fact that it has been around for over 100 years has made that challenge of finding the unique location even more fun. Working for large corporate clients has been very demanding but the rewards of a job well done make it all worthwhile. It’s a lot easier to love your job when you truly love what you do and enjoy going to work.

Derek Martin

In addition to being our resident web manager at Roberts, I am a practicing fine artist under the moniker "Zed Martinez" with works in oil paint as well as digital photography. I graduated from Ball State's College of Arts with a BFA in Visual Communication in 2006 and have been with Roberts since the following spring. I am a loyal advocate for digital photography, a whiz behind a computer, and the head blogger on our Raw blog.

My long experience with computers, technology, and digital photography--as well as my life spent in Adobe's various software suites--make me an ideal choice for teaching about the more technical and detail-oriented side of the digital imaging world we find ourselves in. I have 14 years of experience in Photoshop and Illustrator, and have been using Lightroom as a dedicated workflow solution for five years now.

As an artist, I have been exhibited several times around Indianapolis, including at Oranje and for RAW Artists. As well as previously working with Midwest Emerging Artists and have been hung at the McFee Gallery.

Scott Mumphrey

I attended Herron School of Art and IUPUI from 1994-1998 studying photo journalism and visual communications. After which I was hired by Roberts Camera and I have been there for the past 14 years as a salesman. Assisting Jim Hysong, an Indiana based wedding photographer, I photographed weddings from 1999-2002. After a few years of assisting, I started helping my wife with her business of photographing products and store front images for advertisement in our local newspaper. In the fall of 2002, I decided to go out on my own doing commercial photography, weddings and sports. During this time I also worked for the same newspaper that my wife and I advertised through, the Noblesville Daily Times, as a stringer from 2002-2007. I assisted with covering high school sports and events in the Hamilton County area. While sports photography is my first passion, I decided to branch out a little, and I got involved with the commercial side of the business. Working as a commercial photographer, I have had the opportunity to work with companies such as Kite Realty, Chase Bank and Eaton Investments, by doing employee head shots and new properties real estate photography for advertisement. In my spare time I enjoy landscape photography and taking pictures of my kids in their school sports and events.

John Scott

The power of capturing a singular moment of time has captivated me since putting a camera in my hand at the age of ten. When I began working with a local photo studio in 1997, midway through high school, I was completely smitten and quickly transitioned my creative outlet from drawing and painting to photography. My approach to making pictures is with the understanding that images can inform a viewer generations down the road. Simple snapshots that are created today can become valuable images 50 years from now. To me, photography is a truly powerful medium.

I began seriously learning photography on a Mamiya RZ system in 1997 and purchased his first digital camera shortly after I started working at Robert's in July of 2003. After apprenticing for nearly 5 years, I started my own photography business in 2001. Photography is a life's passion for me and I enjoy helping others expand their ability and knowledge.

Jarrid Spicer

I have been practicing fine art photography for over twenty years. Earning a bachelor’s degree from Indiana University in 2002 I then completed a master of fine arts degree in photography at Savannah Collage of Art and Design in 2008. I have taught photography to students of all age and ability levels in after-school programs, professional and amateur workshops, and graduate level college courses. My students appreciate my vast experience, limitless patience, and contagious enthusiasm for photography.

My expertise comes from both constant practice and work with leading photographic experts. As a teaching assistant at the Maine Media Workshops, I had the opportunity to assist artists such as George Tice, one of the greatest photographers practicing traditional black and white printing techniques today, and Dan Burkholder, whose digital darkroom techniques are renowned by the photography community. I have also learned alternative processes, including platinum and albumen printing and cyanotypes from authorities like Christopher James.

In addition to shooting and darkroom techniques, I am also a digital printing expert. After studying with leading inkjet printer Craig Stevens at Savannah College of Art and Design, I was hired to run and maintain the college’s computer and inkjet facilities.

My work has been hung in gallery shows in Indiana, Georgia, and Colorado and is featured in a number of collections. Additionally, my photos are included in domestic and international publications.

I joined Robert's in 2011, working in the print lab and making artistic contributions with the digital restoration of customer's images. Then in early 2012, I joined the Robert's sales team and, thus, found my home at Robert's.

Prior to joining the Robert's family, I took an early retirement from a successful 28-year career in the business world. In my free time I enjoy all types of photography on both a personal and professional level.

My official college training was completed well before the advent of personal computing and the explosion of digital media (I'm young at heart). As such, early in my retirement I enjoyed the role of student once again, immersed in learning the "ins and outs" of digital vs. film photography - but I also consider myself a lifetime learner, always looking for new ways to be creative. I am also proficient in the use of the Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop products for retouching, image restoration and graphic design.

It's very satisfying to help Robert's customers find the photography equipment that best meets their needs - and to help them learn to capture the images they want.
