After The Adventure

After The Adventure

After The Adventure is an alumni-only, intensive three-day workshop designed to transform some of your best raw files created during a Within The Frame Adventure into beautiful photographs and prints, while learning more about editing, post-processing, and Lightroom’s Library, Develop, and Print modules. (While we will talk about Lightroom, the information is the same for other post-processing applications.)

This isn’t a classroom-type workshop. It takes place at Jeffrey and Winslow’s home and is limited to just four participants.* It begins the first evening with a home-cooked dinner and discussion on choosing the right raw files for post-processing and continues through large-format printing the final afternoon.

*A special After The Adventure will be hosted by Within The Frame alumna extraordinaire Mamen Saura in San Francisco, CA (actually Palo Alto, CA) from April 30 to May 2, 2018.

Participants must bring a laptop with Lightroom (a 30-day free trial is available if one doesn’t already have Lightroom; click here for a link to that “Free Trial”) and the raw files they wish to process. Bring 50 raw files. From those, we will select which to post-process. We will supply Epson Ultra Premium Presentation Paper Matte for your prints. This is a beautiful archival paper that is great for learning to see your prints.

You do NOT need to be an expert in post-processing to participate in this workshop. Jeffrey and Winslow will work with you on every step of the process.

Day One 

We will begin with a slideshow of Jeffrey’s and Winslow’s photographs (with before and after examples) followed by a home-cooked dinner and a discussion on What Makes a Great Raw File for Post-processing.

Day Two 

The morning session will begin with Editing 101: Selecting Which Photographs to Post-process, after which Jeffrey and Winslow will help each participant select an initial 5–10 photographs for post-processing.

The second morning session is an Overview of Lightroom’s Library, Develop, and Print Modules. Any participants already familiar with Lightroom can skip this session and begin working on Post-processing.

We will break for a home-cooked lunch (outside under the Tulip trees for the Maryland editions, if the weather cooperates).

The afternoon session will concentrate on Post-processing, Preparing Files for Printing, and Printing some of your beautiful creations.

We will finish the day with a home-cooked dinner, complete with wine and laughter as we admire the day’s prints before heading outside to sit around the campfire (for Marlyand editions, weather permitting) and philosophize over the joys and hurdles of photography.

Day Three 

This morning we will continue with Post-processing Tweaks and Printing. It’s not uncommon to need to print and reprint a photograph three to five times while working to get it right.

We will break for a home-cooked lunch and spend the early afternoon finishing any last prints, including Large Format Prints.
