CT Media/Photography Institute (CTPhoto) workshops is committed to supporting the perpetual desire of human beings to record their perception of reality as an image of edge defining, reflective light. Although technologies will continue to rapidly change, learning “how to see light” will always remain a constant.
Macintosh Computer Lab #1
All of our Master Teachers for the inaugural workshops understand the importance of “seeing” light with all of its tones, hues, saturation, and edge defining characterizes, for their own photography and that of their students. As I put together the weekly “dream teams”, I focused on how each of them would add their unique way of seeing light to the “workflow” learning experience of our students. Each of the three cornerstones of today’s digital imaging world: image capture, image manipulation, and image output will be fully covered in each of the weeks. Technology will remain a tool to create with instead of becoming the “master of the creator”. Passion, choice, and action are to drive the desire for discovery and give new meaning to the word “learning”. Located close to New York, Boston, and Providence, CTPhoto workshops draw from the “best-of-the-best” and from the core of creative energies generated at these locations.
Although small in size, Connecticut’s diverse topography hosts a mix of oldworld charm, natural beauty and industrial modernization. Nearby the workshop are beautiful landscapes, rivers, historic locations where the “tall ships” dock or active steam locomotives still make their run down to the sea. Within its counties and a short drive, urban skylines and shoreline beaches dot our landscape. Finally, the CTPhoto workshops can boast of having the newest equipment in the areas of computers, monitors, scanning, digital printing, studio spaces, and photography on our new campus. We’re in the right place at just the perfect time. David Archambault Project Manager
