Outdoor photography shoots (rain or shine — bring appropriate wear) combined with classroom training sessions focused at your skill level insure greater understanding of techniques to improve your macro and landscape photography.
Presentations are provided in two tracks; one for people who consider themselves beginners, and another for those who are more experienced. Topics range from composition, exposure, and depth-of-field to zone system, creative use of white balance, and HDR.
This photography workshop is suitable for beginning or intermediate photographers with all types of cameras. Multiple instructors assure quality and comprehensive one-on-one instruction.
