Sharon Tenenbaum, Instructor
Dates: August 10th – 13th, 2021 (9am-4pm)
Long Exposure Photography changes the way that we see reality. It eliminates the unnecessary details and creates more of an emphasis on art. It can distort time and transform an everyday scene into something otherworldly. For Vancouver professional photographer Sharon Tenenbaum, this mystical quality is a big part of what makes the technique appealing. While normal exposures typically take just a fraction of a second, daytime long exposures leave the camera’s shutter open for extended periods of time. The resulting photos capture objects that remain still while moving subjects turn into a dreamy blur, or disappear completely.
Come join Sharon to discover and learn more about the beauty and art of Daytime Long Exposure Photography Workshop in which you will learn to master the principles of the Long Exposure technique in camera using Neutral Density filters, as well as post-processing fundamentals to continue the image creation process to add enhancements and enrich your image to comply with your vision.
The Workshop will combine classroom theory, field-shooting, classroom review, and post-processing of the images. Sharon will show post-processing in Lightroom as well as Photoshop; however, the lion’s share and more sophisticated post-processing takes place in Photoshop. If you are not familiar with Photoshop Layers, Adjustment Layers and Masking, I highly recommend you attend the One-Day Photoshop Add-On at the beginning of the Long Exposure Workshop.
Instructor Bio: Sharon Tenenbaum was educated as a Civil Engineer in Israel and was practicing as a Professional Engineer in Vancouver, BC, Canada. In late 2007 she made a decision to part from engineering in order to pursue her passion for photography after being inspired by a life-changing journey to South East Asia. Her passion for photography started with street photojournalism, yet combined with her original background as a Civil Engineer, her work covers a wide gamut of subject matter from ‘in the moment’ Photojournalism to Fine Art Architectural Photography, which is a perfect marriage of her engineering and artistic sides. In a relatively short period, she has managed to define an artistic direction and distinctive style in her work, acquiring international recognition in the process. Sharon has numerous fine art international awards and her work has been published in several magazines including National Geographic.
