HOIST is a boutique studio in Fairfax VA that caters to creative professionals who appreciate high production capability and great value.
The Host, Carlton Wolfe is a DC-based editorial and commercial photographer who loves to experiment with (and talk about) the process and technique of creating interesting and expressive visuals in-camera. Check out some of his experiments on Instagram (@carltonwolfe) and search #apadc_sos_feb2017 for examples of images made in-camera with only one strobe and no other natural or ambient light.

The class will revolve around taking your photography to the next level. How do you become a “better” photographer? What kinds of gear will help your imagery? Students will also learn how composition affects the viewer. In addition, there will be a hands on section that each student will give you the opportunity to use their camera.

The second part of the class will focus on The Digital Darkroom. What are the differences between jpg and raw files? What are the benefits of shooting raw files? And how do we process raw files. Adobe Elements will be briefly talked about as well as Adobe Lightroom.
In addition we will look at two tools for when we take quick shots with our phone; that is Snapseed and The Photographer’s Ephemeris
