She leads photo workshops and tours around New England and she is currently an instructor with the Cape Cod Art Association and the Alison Caron Design Studio in Hyannis where she teaches Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop and other post-processing software applications. Betty mainly specializes in landscape and nature photography, but she also does lifestyle and editorial work. She is the author of a popular ebook entitled “Capturing the Light: A Photographer’s Guide to Cape Cod.” She believes that good light and composition are keys to a successful image and she often heads out in the morning before sunrise or in the evening in order to photograph the riches of the Cape and New England.

Tonight Betty will be presenting her program “Capturing the Light: Travels Near and Far and Post-Processing Techniques: Taking images from bland and boring, to ones that have impact”. The first portion of her program will include a presentation of her favorite images from Cape Cod, and her travels throughout the United States and abroad. She will discuss some of her favorite locations around New England, including when and where to go. In the second half of the program, she will discuss the importance of post-processing to take images from bland and boring to ones that have impact. She will cover some of the favorite techniques she uses in the digital darkroom, including Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop and various plug-ins, such as, MacPhun (soon to be known as Skylum), Topaz and others. She will demonstrate how she creates drama in her images and different ways to enrich images by building on what’s already there. This program will have something for everyone: from beginners to advanced photographers alike. We hope you can join us!
