Summer in the Shenandoah, VA
August 5 @ 9:30 am - 9:00 pm$179.00
An educational field trip for those who love taking photos!
Frustrated with how your pictures are turning out? Can’t get your camera to do what you want it to do? Maybe there’s a special effect you’ve seen other photographers do, but you can’t seem to quite figure out how to do it yourself? Do you know about Manual mode, but the thought of actually using it scares you?!
You’re not alone!
Every photographer has faced these situations at one point or another . . . and thankfully, they can all be resolved! You can have complete control of your camera. You can start taking better pictures.
And it’s not as hard as you might think!
You don’t need an expensive camera. You don’t need tons of knowledge. Just start with a few key principles and an understanding of the equipment that you have . . . and you can start taking pictures like a pro!
With plenty of time to practice, practice, practice under the guidance of a professional photographer, a Photography Field Day is a fun, hands-on workshop for learning specific photography techniques in the classroom of creation. Photographers of all experience levels are welcome. Bring your camera, and be prepared to learn:
- How to make beautiful, blurry backgrounds
- How to create the pro sunstar effect
- How to photograph the soft, silky water effect
- How to make your pictures tack sharp every time
- How to start shooting in Manual right now
- How photographers can make a positive impact on the world
There’s so much you can do with your camera! Let’s learn how to make the most of it.
Who should come: Anyone who has a camera and wants to take beautiful pictures!
Tuition: $179/photographer, or $89/photographer for Lenspiration members!
Location: 2133 Hummingbird Ridge Trail, Montvale, VA 24122
Schedule: Let’s meet and greet at 9:30am so we can start digging into things promptly at 10:00. We’ll go over basic photography terms and camera settings to make sure we’re all on the same page, and then learn and experiment hands-on with how to intentionally create various amazing artistic effects with our cameras. In the late afternoon, we’ll head outside to put into practice everything we’ve learned and be done shooting after sunset.
Meals: Lunch and dinner will be provided!
Weather: Average daily temperatures here in August are beautiful, between 66 and 86 degrees. It may be wet, however, so it might be a good idea to come prepared with a light rain jacket and an extra pair of socks. 🙂 Mist and fog surrounding periods of rain make for incredible photos and lots of clouds can make for amazing sunsets. So, check the weather beforehand in case it’s predicted to be more rainy or colder than a typical day in the outdoors.
