Make your summer Picture Perfect.
For all the people in our group who are still struggling with their cameras controls this is your lucky summer.
We are running this popular workshop again with the goal of getting everyone out and shooting.
Last year people who took the workshop were asking for some shooting time. We heard ya and we are going to dedicate the summer to doing just that.
The summer critiques will be focused on helping beginners improve. We will also be posting shooting exercises that will provide you a hands on experience of what you learned in the workshop.
We will be scheduling FREE critiques throughout the summer for workshop participants that will focus on simple camera operation and how to make minor corrections in your techniques that will improve your shooting.
The goal this summer is to get everyone familiar with their cameras and lenses . In September we will then focus on upping everyone’s game with more advance techniques and image editing skills.
Lots of good stuff coming.
Stay tuned guys.
