    “Let’s Put the Master in Masterpiece, Shall We?”


    by Barbara MacFerrin



    How is it that some images are exquisite harmonies of textures, colors, mood, and expressions beyond most of our imaginations? And how could we learn to be such masters of artistry? Wonder no more!




    Join us in October for our monthly guild meeting, and merited workshop the following day with portrait artist Barbara MacFerrin; “Wardrobe, Colors and Textures—An Innovative, Modern Take On the Old Masters”. She’ll show us start to finish how she creates her award-winning images.


    Bring your cameras for the workshop because we will be shooting!

    John Hartman,

    M.Photog.Cr, M.Artist, CPP, EA-ASP, Hon. EA-ASP


    An Introduction to the Art of Light Painting


    John Hartman has taken the photographic community by storm with his light painted images. Using simple flashlights, he literally paints small areas of the subject and then masks the individual files (sometimes over 100) into a single, spectacular image that can’t be created by any other method.


    In this hands-on learning experience you will watch an entire light painting process, including set preparation, lighting techniques, and all post-processing steps. You will see each image as it is being made and projected on a large screen.


    You will then watch as John edits and assembles the separate images into a single, beautiful image. In addition, you will discover how to find customers who are likely light painting clients. You’ll learn how to book them, what products to offer and how to price and sell them.



    John has owned his Wisconsin-based studio since 1974 and has been teaching photographers how to improve their imaging and grow their business for the past 38 years. He has remained relevant in the industry by constantly innovating and reinventing his work, business and teaching methodologies.
