In Person: Develop Your Photographic Eye

October 2, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - October 4, 2020 @ 1:00 pm

| $370 – $400

Want to have a fun weekend learning photography in beautiful Pt Reyes.? Don’t let the buttons, dials and choices on your DSLR camera overwhelm you! It is time to master your technique and unlock your creativity. We will be working through the technical ABCs of photography as well as opening up the doors of possibility for your creative, inspired imagination. There is no better place to be energized than at Pt. Reyes. Weather permitting, we will have a nighttime shoot. Whether you are a beginner or seasoned photographer, we have ideas, tips and techniques to share with you. Photographers of all levels of experience and gear are welcome. Through interactive demonstrations, discussions and hands on experience we will cover many topics. Once you have the practical, technical aspects under your belt, you will be able to expand your vision and take photos that do not disappoint. You will bring home beautiful, original images of Pt Reyes. For those who are new to photography, this weekend will get you started and for those of you who are more seasoned, there will be techniques and tips to help solidify your knowledge and move your photography along to the next level. No more vague, unexciting snapshots; after this weekend you will be able to take the photos that actually show what you saw and experienced.
