We know you. Your hard drive is filled with picture files, and they've got names like: "_MG_8266.CR2," "DSC_7230.NEF," and "Headshot-Final-Final-Final.jpg." You're overwhelmed by your own pictures and, secretly, you're not totally sure which ones are backed up and which ones aren't. You wonder whether you should be using Bridge, Photoshop, LightRoom, Aperture, Nikon View NX, or Capture One. You're thinking about that new 36megapixel Nikon, but can't decide if it would be the best camera ever, or just a giant storage nightmare.
We understand. We are Jean Miele & Antonio M. Rosario, and we have many of those same feelings. The difference between us and you, however, is that we've developed simple, practical strategies for minimizing the pain, so we can get back to what's important: making pictures.
En Foco has enlisted us to help ease your pain, and we're excited about spending a few hours sharing what we know. Join us for what promises to be a highly interactive and useful seminar. There will be a Q&A session during which we look forward to discussing file renaming, RAIDs & other hard-drives, storage in the "Cloud," Photoshop vs. LightRoom and much more. Let us teach you how to get organized, so you can stop worrying and focus on creating!
Jean Miele is an artist who uses photography to explore the borderlands between fiction and reality. His personal interest in perception, spirituality and mysticism have inspired and informed his artwork since the mid-1980s. Original prints of Miele’s images have been exhibited internationally and acquired by collectors worldwide, and his photographs have appeared in thousands of publications. A lifelong Brooklynite, Miele’s work encompasses exhibitions, commissioned work for clients, and a busy teaching schedule. His workshops, seminars, and one-on-one instructionals (for Adobe Systems; Apple Computer; Fuji USA; ICP; the Norwegian Fotografiakademiet, and many others) demystify digital technique and empower students to realize their own photographic vision. For more information, and to see his latest body of work, “The Vintage Series,” please visit: www.jeanmiele.com
Antonio M. Rosario is a professional photographer and digital imaging & workflow consultant. A prolifically active stock-photographer since the early 1990s, his commercial photography is marketed through Getty, Tetra Images, iStockPhoto and Alamy. If you’ve ever admired a calendar from the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, there’s a good chance he did the photographs; Rosarioe particularly enjoys having them as a client – just as he enjoys training industry professionals, advanced amateurs and traditional film photographers as they transition to the digital realm. Based in Brooklyn, NY, Rosario divides his time about equally between the Internet and the real world. To see what he’s up to, follow him on Twitter, seek him out on Vimeo, check him out on 500px, or visit his website at: www.amrosario.com
