Sally's Studio

Each student will be assigned a very high-powered HP Z Workstation, loaded with professional photo editing software. (Copyright by Sally Wiener Grotta. All Rights Reserved.)
Two hours (and a world away) from New York City, Sally's studio is a converted Oddfellows Hall in the picturesque Pocono Mountains of Northeast Pennsylvania. This state-of-the-art high tech studio is surrounded by fields and a stream, and even has an historic cemetery in the backyard, and a horse farm next door. The building is also handicap-accessible, though walking in the field or cemetery might present a challenge. For those Master Classes involving imaging and photo editing, you will have the exclusive use of:
  • A Xeon-powered, professional HP Z Workstation*
  • A large color-calibrated professional HP monitor*
  • A Wacom Intuous 5 pressure sensitive tablet*
  • Adobe Lightroom* 5
  • Adobe Photoshop CC*
  • Adobe Illustrator CC (and all the other programs in Adobe Creative Cloud Suite*)
  • Kingston Technology USB 3.0 Flash Memory Reader*
  • Nik Software Silver Efex Pro 2, Viveza 2 and Color Efex Pro 4*
  • Corel Painter 12
  • Other professional software and hardware
  • CDs and/or USB keydrives to save your work and take it home with you
* Thank you to Hewlett Packard, Adobe, Kingston Technology, Wacom, Nik Software and XRite for their support of these Master Classes.

Friendly Pet Warning
In residence is Watson, a large overly friendly Golden Retriever, and his two cats Rascal and Diva.
