"Infusing Fiction with a Sense of Place" at Hyannis Public Library Aug 23, 2017

August 23, 2017 6:00 pm

Do you want to be a writer of fiction? Join us at the Hyannis Public Library on Wednesday, August 23 at 6 p. m. when novelist, playwright, writing instructor, and WOMR Culture Editor Jeannette de Beauvoir presents “Infusing Fiction with a Sense of Place.” This program is free and open to the public.
Many novelists begin their work with the idea for a story, or with a strong character or two that inspire them. Jeannette de Beauvoir takes a different approach: all of her stories are strongly rooted in a very specific place, complete with eccentricities, stories, and secrets. Using some of her own books as examples, she’ll illustrate how places can provide context, inspiration, and even plot for the writer who takes the time to explore them.

Being on-board a boat and experiencing close-up encounters of whales is very special. These majestic mammals often venture quite close to the boat. It can, however, be quite difficult to capture behaviors with your camera. This exciting new workshop is designed so that you will acquire all the skills necessary to capture great shots of whales. Tom will not only present some group sessions, he will also help each participant individually as needed, to make sure their cameras are set up correctly and that they are ‘up-to-speed’ with their photographic techniques. Once everyone is set up, Tom will walk around the boat coaching the participants, to make sure they are ready for when the whales start to appear and getting well composed images with proper exposure and focus using techniques keyed upon in the morning workshop.

A quiet time to create . . .
In the quiet of Sandy Neck Beach Park, the rustic cottage at the halfway point stands in the middle of the dunes, marsh and water.  It provides solitude, scenic landscapes and an endless source of beauty and inspiration. The Town of Barnstable, in partnership with the Cape Cod Art Association, offers day excursions to this unspoiled landscape. It is a special place to create and immerse yourself in the great outdoors. From time to time a Sandy Neck Beach Park naturalist will travel out with the group and share their firsthand knowledge and expertise of this “living museum”.

Instructor: Betty Wiley
Day: Tuesday, November 7
Time: 6:00pm-9:00pm
Price: Members $70/Non-members $90
Understanding layers and masks in Photoshop
Layers and masks are powerful tools in Photoshop/Photoshop Elements and can really be described as the heart and soul in both Photoshop and Photoshop Elements.  This evening workshop is designed to demystify layers and masks in Photoshop and Elements and you will see the many ways that these tools can be used in your editing workflow.  Layers and masks are really quite simple to use.
This will be a hands-on class where you will bring your own laptop and work on sample images, step-by-step.  The goal is for you to leave this workshop with a good understanding of how to use layers and masks.  A handout will be provided to workshop attendees.
This class is geared toward those who have Photoshop or Photoshop Elements (versions that support the use of layers).  Students should have some familiarity with either program although proficiency is not required.  This is not a computer class however and students will need to know how to access files and navigate the computer.

Sky Replacement Techniques using Photoshop/Elements w/ Betty Wiley 11/18

Sky Replacement Techniques using Photoshop/Elements
(and Plug-ins such as Perfect Layers from On-One and Luminar from MacPhun)
Instructor: Betty Wiley
Date: Saturday, November 18
Time: 1:00pm-4:00pm
Cost: $70 Member/$90 Non Member
In this class, Betty will show you how to replace bland, boring, colorless skies focusing on using Photoshop/Photoshop Elements.  The techniques that Betty will demonstrate in this session are relatively easy and fast and create a believable look.  This is a popular class that Betty has taught to many groups and organizations.  Learn how to jazz up your images by replacing those ugly, bland boring skies easily and quickly!
This class will be focused on techniques using Photoshop/Photoshop Elements however Betty will also demonstrate other ways to replace skies using plug-ins such as Perfect Layers from On-One and Luminar from MacPhun software.  Perfect layers and Luminar are great alternatives if students do not own or use Photoshop or Photoshop Elements.
This is a hands-on class because we believe everyone learns best by practicing and doing instead of simply watching a presentation.  Therefore, students are encouraged to bring their own laptops.  Basic computer skills are required and students should be able to find and access files on their own computers.  Since this class is primarily geared toward techniques using Photoshop/Elements, students should be familiar with using this software although proficiency is not required to take this class.

We will provide sample images for students to work on during class.

Life After Nik/Google – Exploring other plug-ins such as Luminar (and others)
Instructor: Betty Wiley
Day: Saturday, December 2
Time: 1:00pm-4:00pm
Price: $70 Member/$90 Non Member
This class will be focused on using Luminar (by MacPhun Software which is a great alternative to the popular plug-in Google/NIK plug-in suite used by many photographers.  As many of you know, Google recently announced that they would discontinue further support of the Google (formerly NIK) plugin software suite. Luminar is a plugin for Lightroom and Photoshop, as well as a standalone image editor. This means that there are lots of ways you can use this software in your editing workflow.
Luminar is very easy to use and comes with presets for quick editing and you can change the effects for the exact look you want.  In this class, you will learn how to add Luminar to your Lightroom and Photoshop workflow and how to use Luminar in place of Nik/Google’s Color Efex Pro filters. There are a wide variety of presets that you can apply to create quick looks or add finishing touches. You can even use it in lieu of Photoshop if you are a Lightroom-only user. Luminar was initially only a Mac product but a Windows version (currently beta) was just released. Betty will show you how the Luminar interface works and how she uses the many filters, presets, and features to give her images extra pop or a special look.  You can quickly create an Orton effect, add a golden hour look to your images, extract details, create a grunge or dreamy look in seconds plus much more!
This is a hands-on class because we believe everyone learns best by practicing and doing instead of simply watching a presentation.  Therefore, students are encouraged to bring their own laptops.
Prerequisites:  basic computer skills are required and students should know how to find and access files on their own computers.  Luminar should be installed and running as there won’t be time during class to install the software.  Please see the link below to download the software.  Note that a trial version is available.
