Photo Retreats, Individual and Group Seminars
Learn to see through an artist's perspective using the camera as a tool to create meaningful imagery.
What you will learn
Photographic sessions include opportunities for stimulating conversations and critique. Experiment with ambient light as well as artificial light modifiers, extended camera controls, stretching exposure time with slow shutter speeds, zooming in for selective focus through shallow perception, or broadening your vision through extended depth of field to increase the visual impact of your work and elevate your photographs to a deeper level of meaning. Contact me for more information or to organize small group seminars.

Enhancing Your Creative Vision
Concept to Gallery Exhibition at FRANK's Michael & Laura Brader-Araje Community Outreach Gallery
for the FRANK:inFocus October Photo month
In this comprehensive October course, held during the October month of photography in the Triangle, students create a body for work from image capture to concept critique, technical feedback, and software editing. Students utilize the Center's digital print lab to produce and display a cohesive set of images for framing and exhibition at the FRANK Community Outreach Gallery.
Durward Rogers co-teaches with Barbara to take the images from initial concept to final exhibition. Students are encouraged to explore advanced printing techniques with CDS's Harland Campbell.

Creating a Fine Art
Heirloom Legacy Print
Encaustic Photography Workshops
with Mary Lamb
Get motivated to organize those old family photos from the garage and storage boxes, miscellaneous albums, and deteriorating plastic sheets! Get motivated to explore, preserve, distribute, and display your digital file collections and choose those special images for future printing, framing, or constructing additional safe back up storage.
In both the Heirloom Print and Encaustic Workshops, students will have the opportunity to share and discuss selected family photographs from their personal family photo archives. We will discuss which ones are meaningful, salvageable, and what they represent for your legacy to future generations. We will provide additional resources for storage and preservation.
In the Heirloom Fine Art Print Workshops, Barbara produces a scanned and “cleaned up” print from your collection, incorporating text or compositing and collaging symbolic imagery from past and present generations.
In the Encaustic Workshops, Mary will use these selected imagery and teach you how to apply encaustic wax materials to the surface of the paper to produce a fine art print suitable for framing.
Contact me for future workshops with Barbara and with Barbara and Mary at the FRANK Gallery this fall 2019.
