June 19-21Inner Vision 2: Master Class

In his first class, Tilak Hettige allowed students to strip away the common roadblocks to creativity, among them, a preoccupation with equipment and technical processes, literal conformity with so-called "rules" of composition, and the temptation to clone the approaches and styles of other photographers.

In this, the Master Class, he takes graduates of the first class to the next level, in which students explore the innermost depths of their creative vision and develop an artistic style of their own.

July 30–31Creating Digital Magazines with Adobe Digital Publishing System

Adobe Digital Publishing System (DPS) is used by major magazines to create digital magazines that are viewed on tablets, cell phones, and computers. Digital Magazines are rich with media and interactivity that is assembled in Adobe InDesign using some interactive panels for creating slideshows, scrolling text windows, importing media, creating image sequences, panoramas, and QuickTime VR files.

The DPS system from Adobe is an expensive solution, however, artists and designers don’t need to purchase anything more than Adobe InDesign. Folio files are created in Adobe InDesign and handed off to the client who purchases the complete DPS solution and submits the final assembled folio file to Adobe Systems for publishing.

This course teaches you how to create and view digital magazines that can be assembled as a final product to hand over to a client.

This seminar is led by author and international speaker, Ted Padova.
