You’ll have the opportunity to practice what you’ve learned outside in the woods with Steve on hand to give you tips.  With so many great photographic opportunities and challenges outdoors, you’ll have plenty of pictures and new skills to take home.

In this First Class, there will be a short presentation were we will discuss tips and techniques for getting great photographs. Then off to the outdoors to photograph for the day, make sure you bring you tripod/monopod and the longest lens you have.

In the Second Class we will view our Images and critique them for a show and tell. With an opportunity to show your best work.
