Where to find Daniel teaching?

Silly Dog Studios isn't the only place to find me teaching or speaking. Here is a list of places to find me.

Photographic Center Northwest

For the spring quarter I am teaching three classes: Introduction to Lightroom, Fine art digital printing and Advanced Color Topics.

Photographic Center Northwest (PCNW) is an educational institution dedicated to facilitating creation, conversations, and experiences of significant photography. Through courses, exhibitions, lectures, and outreach projects, PCNW provides access to the photographic arts, to professional and amateur photographers, and to the public at large.

Comprehensive Lightroom

This class is a comprehensive survey of Adobe Lightroom CC. Over the course of the quarter, we will explore how to use Lightroom to organize, edit and share your photographs. We will cover all aspects of Lightroom focusing on organizing, editing and printing your images. You will also develop your own personalized workflow within the program. If you are just starting out or have been using Lightroom for a while, this course can help you excel at working with your photography. Each student will be working on their own images and have real world assignments to help them better understand and use the program. We will cover how Lightroom integrates with third-party programs such as Photoshop. Topics covered include: Importing, Exporting, Printing, every module in detail (Library, Develop, Map, Book, Print), color management, workflow, presets, digital asset management, collections, editing tools, third-party integration, Lightroom Mobile and more.

Fine art digital printing

Learn how to produce high-quality fine art digital prints on PCNW’s Epson and Canon inkjet printers. Master a workflow, understand paper options, and develop critical color management skills that will ensure the best possible print quality. Learn how to read prints and understand which adjustments in Photoshop will help you achieve your vision. Develop the ability to create pristine digital prints from scanned analog originals or captures from your digital camera.
