Learn how to make better pictures. Are you one of the many photographers who loves to shoot pictures? Do you want to be among the few who learn how to make your photos exceptional? As new cameras and processing software become available, the need for you to learn more becomes increasingly important. Our classes and workshops are designed for photographers of all skill levels, no matter what camera you use. You'll learn practical tips and techniques that will teach you to make better pictures. Our goal at Princeton Digital Photo Workshop is to offer photographers at every experience level practical, hands-on classes and workshops that will help you to shoot and process better photographs.
Great instructors and very knowledgeable. Almost perfect. I just wished we did more locations (Oculus, Grand Central Station, etc.) That said, it was a great experience and would highly recommend it.
I have been a Lightroom user for over a year, and yet I found this class to have been an extremely valuable experience that opened my eyes to several new and productive functions that had not always been immediately obvious to me in spite of my experience working with Lightroom. Alan Kesselhaut is a very effective teacher. He presents advanced user functions in a way that is clear for the sophisticated user without ever talking down to or leaving a less experienced student behind. He keeps the classes small. My group was limited to six students, which gave us all time for the personal help we may have wanted or needed to master some of the more complex features of this latest version of the software. I have participated in several PPW classes, some in New York City streets and subways and some in classrooms. All have been valuable experiences.
Excellent class, walked away feeling much more prepared for my trip
Best photography/Adobe class I have ever taken. Alan is great and makes sure you leave with a strong understanding of basic light room storage and also gets you started with manipulating your images. I would recommend and I plan on taking more courses from PHW!
Class was great and I learned a lot in a short period of time. Alan explained everything very clearly and concisely. He even helped me with a few of my own images. You must have basic computer skills/ knowledge to take this! There were several people who did not and slowed the rest of the class down. I know this was a basic class but that means basic to the program... not to the computer. I will be taking the advanced course next.
The field trip listed is only the most recent class that I have taken with PPW. I have taken five workshops and field trips with Princeton Photo Workshops anf they have been invariably of high caliber. All programs will have folks of mixed skill levels and Alan and the other instructors were always able to address the differences well. The groups are small so plenty of individual attention can be and was given. In fact am signed up for another field trip, and I am certain I will take more in the future since there is an interesting variety of locations and photographic topics on offer. I have been taking photographs for many year and have a pretty fair understanding of post production, I have always walked away with a number of new ideas, skill, and insights.
I took a two hour private class with Alan yesterday to start learning Adobe Light Room. It was amazing, and exhausting (but in a good way). My brain was so full and i was very excited. Today I've started the tedious, and necessary, task of organizing my pictures and setting up collection sets and collections. . . Then on to turning my pictures into ART!! I'm so grateful for all of the offerings of Princeton Photo Workshop. This was probably the best money i ever spent. Alan was very kind and patient, as well as incredibly experienced and knowledgeable. I felt like we were on the same page philosophically as well. The offer of ongoing support was also very generous and much appreciated. I feel like I learned alot, and also feel more confident. I'm excited to start taking more pictures, and then working with them to make them into art. You guys are the best. Can't wait until I'm ready for the next level. Until them - practice, practice, practice ;-)
Great workshop, I really enjoyed the library. Our guide was very creative and informative. I would definitely take another workshop with the Princeton Photo Workshop group.
I recently took my first workshop with, PPW/Alan. The class was macro photography, Don Komarechka was the guest instructor. The class was outstanding, Don and Alan's love for photography make them excellent instructors. I will definitely be taking more classes at PPW.
The class was good but you would have benefited from more instructinons on from The teachers.
