Point Reyes: Intimate Details and Personal Visions; Two Photo Workshops available in August 2016

I have two variations of a wonderful new photo workshop class called Point Reyes: Intimate Details and Personal Vision that I’ll be teaching in Point Reyes in August. Following is a basic class description. I’ve also included a number of images in this post to whet your appetite.  Both of these classes are run by the non-profit Point Reyes National Seashore Association. To register, or get more information, click the links below to visit the PRNSA Field Institute web site. I hope to see some of you there.

This photography workshop turns our eyes toward the smaller, more intimate details of the world around us. This doesn’t necessarily mean tiny, close-up macro photos. Instead we will explore how to use our vision to recognize and isolate important aspects of scenes and locations. The goal of this class is to stretch our photographic vision into areas we might not be normally accustomed to shooting, to improve our visual storytelling through composition, visualization, and the selective use of our equipment. We’ll also touch on photographic techniques like selective focus, focus stacking, and additional post-processing considerations.

The first is a 3-day full photo workshop that includes multiple classroom, field presentations and locations, a photo review and critique, along with overnight accommodations at the Historic Lifeboat Station. This class is being held Friday-Sunday, August 19-21, 2016.

There is a one-day Photo Workshop variation of the same course, and will feature a single in-class presentation, demonstrations, and hopefully a couple different locations for shooting. The 1-day class is Saturday, August 27, 2016 and runs from 11:00 AM – 6:00 PM.  (After the class officially ends, participants are welcome to stay and shoot through sunset and early evening if they desire.)

*** Special Favor: If you’re one of my Bay Area photography friends or past workshop participants, it would be wonderfully appreciated if you would share this with your other photo friends. – Thanks so much, – Gary. 🙂
