Avoiding Digital Distress

Carl Caylor M.Photog.Cr., CPP

In today’s digital world, technology can be your best friend or your worst enemy.

Have you ever...
      Spent all day editing shots on your computer?
      Panicked to find files after your computer crashed?
      Searched all over for a clean, formatted card to use
      before a shoot?

In this class, PPA Instructor Carl Caylor attacks digital distress head-on. He teaches you how to get it right the first time and have an effective workflow, so technology won’t sink your business! Lessons you will learn from Carl include:

  • Get it right, in camera. Create an image with the right exposure, color balance and focus and you won’t be manipulating files later on.
  • Quality trumps quantity – don’t try to shoot as many images as possible. Shoot fewer images and make them great images. Take time with each shot so you don’t have to take as many shots.

You’ll also learn how to create an efficient card system, enabling you to have cards ready when you’re ready, a filing system for used and unused cards to avoid confusion; and back-up systems so your work is always safe.

Carl will get your mindset – and your office – in order so that you never experience digital distress again!

We value your feedback and want to know how we can improve. Please share your thoughts about the class here.

Carl Caylor Bio

"If beauty was only skin-deep, every photograph would reveal the same personality.  We create portraits.  An artistic expression that goes past the outer layer, beyond first impressions, and into the abyss of one's defining essence."     - Carl Caylor

Carl is a Kodak Mentor and has been involved with photography for over 20 years. He started his photographic career in the darkroom as a custom printer and technician.  He is PPA Certified, a Master Photographer and a Craftsman with Professional Photographers of America.  He has won numerous national awards for his photography, including 17 PPA Loan Collections and several Kodak Gallery and Fuji Masterpiece Awards.  Having begun his teaching career in 1996, Carl has gained national credibility and is now a favorite instructor at photographic seminars and schools world wide.

Carl prides himself on giving a program that contains useful information rather than just a "show and tell" session.  You will be inspired. You will be reminded of things you already know.  Most importantly, you will learn new, useful ideas that will make you a better artist and a more salable photographer.
