"Overgaard Pro Workflow seminar"
1,500$. One day. Max 3 persons.

For you who want to produce a professional result, but haven't had time to learn all the stuff, the professionals can do.
The Overgaard Photo Seminar

The first part of the seminar is one evening
and takes off in the fact that "all photography has to do with light," which will turn out to be a large enough truth to keep us occupied for a while – because light exist in different colors, strengths and comes from many sources.

The seminar will make it easy to see which parts in photography are essential, and which are cool, but not even remotely essential. Also, which camera should you choose - and how do you gain enough control over a camera to produce the pictures, you learn on this seminar, that you can in fact take?

Schedule
Fotoseminar i København
DAY 1: We start the first day at 18.00 and continue to around 23.00. The first evening is in our seminar location where we go over camera theory, photography history, the rather important basics to understand the essence of photography, and we usually have a lot of equipment and lenses floating around on the table.

DAY 2: We go out as a group the next day (usually 6-9 persons). We cover small places, large squares, people in the street, portrait photography, use of lightmeters and available light with reflectors, how to get the white balance right, how to go about unnoticed ... and we stop for coffee, lunch, more coffee, and then dinner for those who can join.

DAY 3: We meet in the morning and start with workflow theory. How do you set up computers, harddrives, backup, color management, systems to archive and find images, and then we edit the photos from the day before in Lighrroom or Aperture.
We select the best and do reviews as a group, and after lunch we do portrait photography and advanced theory (the Overgaard Advanced Workshop takes off where we leave here; in the advanced theory).

The seminars tend to be new networks as we share the same passion in photography, and the participants usually have quite a lot more in common than just photography.

Your own camera:
In reality, you can do this seminar without your own camera, but do you own one or more cameras, then bring them, because we often stumble into things on specific cameras, that can be solved at once. On top of that, there's plenty of gear to look at, so as to get an idea of what we're talking about.
And in fact, don't go buy a new camera for the seminar if you're in doubt. After the seminar you will know a lot more about which camera suits you.
The majority of attendees tot he seminars tend to be Leica shooters, and those who aren't, tend to become. Then you're warned!

Overgaard Pro Workflow Seminar

We start off with getting in control of the colors, including calibrating your screen with a Pantone eye-one calibrator, so that the colors on your monitor are correct in the future. On top of the fact that colors look beautiful when correct, it will improve your work because the contrast, the amount of light and all will become adjusted to meet the industry standards.

Workflow seminar in London
Workflow seminar in London, Sept 2010

When having put the professional foundation there, so to speak, we start creating your personal digital workflow: Import of pictures, archival of pictures, DAM (Digital Assets Management), selection of pictures (being an editor), preparing of files for several types of final (picture editing and adjustment) and then strategic archival of those (DAM).

This seminar will give insight into how you work with MANY picture files every week and in many years, without ever loosing the overview and without loosing valuable pictures. And another important thing; is how to complete the cycles of work so that you don't have tons of work piling up for later.

You will be equipped with some few, effective tools and trick that will enable you to make those dull, but in some way great pictures look good and sparkling, simply by using a small, but effective check list. And you will learn to FINISH pictures so that you have them ready for future use on web sites, in magazines and other print.

Your own computer:
Ideally you bring a computer with some software (you'll get a list in advance of free trials to download). However, you will leave the seminar with a checklist for all future, why the seminar can be done without your own computer (you might not have one, or it's a huge one).

Dates:
Please ask via e-mail thorsten@overgaard.dk or telephone (+45) 8870 7300
