Q. What equipment should I bring?
A. For workshops in the field, a camera with interchangable lenses is a good start. Lenses should include a wide angle for landscape scenes and a telephoto lense in the 200 - 300 mm range which will work well for isolating details and long range landscapes. A sturdy tripod is essential for the early morning and evening sessions. Polarizing and neutral density filters are recommended. Batteries and film or memory cards sufficient for your shooting style round out the essential equipment list. For instructional workshops at our studio, you should bring your camera and an apetite for learning.
Q. What if I don't have a lot of experience?
A. Our workshops are focused on helping photographers become better photographers, whatever their current level. Sometimes the right environment, encouragement, and technical assistance are all that is necessary to create photos of a lifetime. Beginners and experienced photographers are welcomed equally.
Q. How many people will be in the workshop?
A. We strive to create an atmosphere of learning and so while each workshop is different, the number of attendees will be kept small.
Q. Should I bring along a computer?
A. Being able to download your images to a computer adds a level of image protection and allows you to review or edit your images before returning home, and to share them during the workshop.
Q. What can I expect to learn?
A. During the workshop we will discuss topics like exposure, composition, lighting, color, and most of all, the art of seeing. Open discussions are encouraged to allow all of us to learn from each other.
