THUNDER BAY – Arts News – The digital camera, and digital images are an important part of our daily lives. The images captured by people for posting on their website, Facebook site, on their Flickr accounts, and the number of pictures being taken just to share in email is massive. For many people the process of taking a good picture, and turning it into a great image remains a bit of a mystery. Equally confusing is learning how to catalogue your images in order to find them a year or two later.
Lake Superior Art Gallery is offering help.
Are you like many people who take hundreds of pictures, but then can’t find them. JP Fraser offers, “Learning how to catalogue your pictures is probably the most valuable component of this three week course”.
Heading into the cooler season, when people are wanting to attend classes, the LSAG are hosting a course to teach you how to use Adobe Lightbox.
This course is geared to people just like you who are interested in learning to crop, enhance, correct and catalogue your photographs.
You will be guided by two very qualified instructors.
John Ongaro, a photographer for over 20 years, John became an advanced user of Adobe Lightroom in its first release. As a professional photographer, John has become one of the foremost Lightroom instructors. He has delivered various courses in Lightroom to hundreds of photographers from professional, semi-professional and amateur levels for over 5 years. His teaching style allows for discussion and comfort in questioning and gives participants the opportunity to use the tools taught immediately on their own photographs.
A former instructor in Business Marketing, Computers and Entrepreneurship at Confederation College, John is known for delivering complex techniques in understandable and “everyday” terminology. As the owner of Intelligent Design Inc., John lead a team of creative designers and project managers in full service printing design and professional photography services. Responsible for the printing of thousands of images for photographers and designers at all levels, he has a keen understanding and background in digital photographic printing and output. IDI closed in 2011 but today John continues his career as a semi-professional photographer, providing corporate, wedding and commissioned landscape photography, while continuing his career as a radio broadcaster.
JP Fraser who was the Photo Editor with the Chronicle Journal in Thunder Bay, his photographs have appeared in most major daily newspapers across Canada and in the United States, including MacLeans Magazine, Time Magazine, Harper’s Bazaar North America and Europe. He has photographed all of the past Prime Ministers going back to 1979 with Joe Clark. He has also photographed the British Royal Family and one United States Vice President.
