Gear: Tripods but some may wish to walk around and hand hold single image captures.

I will also show you how to choose your backgrounds effectively so that they best set off your subject. We will carefully consider perspective and image design. My goal is to help you to create the images you have always wanted. While in the field participants are encouraged to ask me anything they like about capturing and processing their images. I will teach you how to create pleasing images in-camera in the field. We will carefully consider perspective and image design. I look forward to an exciting and fun workshop!
